If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Vinick sees many people with this particular condition in our Redondo Beach chiropractic office. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression or anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan for three months and the second group receiving the same approach with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Additionally, those positive outcomes were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can significantly reduce your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're suffering from fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
