Fibromyalgia Treatment with Chiropractic

Napa natural fibromyalgia treatmentIf you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Bettencourt sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Napa chiropractic clinic. In fact, 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.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps Fibromyalgia

In a study published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms 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 program with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.

The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in addition to the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic. In addition, those positive results were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.

Fibromyalgia can greatly reduce your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're suffering from fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
