fibromyalgia treatment in Mooresville.jpgPeople who have fibromyalgia experience pain all over their body, such as back pain, neck pain and headaches. The condition tends to affect women more than men and the cause of it is unknown, though it may be connected to trauma or genetics. At Advanced Health and Chiropractic, our chiropractors use adjustments and techniques to help patients suffering from fibromyalgia and other conditions.

Mooresville Chiropractor Implements Care for Pain Management 

The most common symptom of fibromyalgia is a dull pain in the muscles. Pain is the widespread, meaning a patient will have it on both sides of her body and below her waist as well as above her waist. Patients may also have tender points, where they feel pain when touched. Back pain occurs at tender points usually on the top of the shoulders and between the shoulder blades. Patients may also have tender areas on their knees, elbows and hips.

In addition to pain, patients with the condition also feel fatigue constantly. A patient may feel tired even after sleeping for a long period of time. The pain may also cause a patient to wake up in the middle of the night. Some patients also experience conditions such as restless leg syndrome or sleep apnea that further disrupt their sleep.

Dr. Robinson uses gentle spinal adjustments to treat patients suffering from fibromyalgia. The adjustments allow patients to relax and help them to regain a range of motion while easing their pain. Many patients have adjustments several times a month for the most benefit and feeling of wellness.

Massage therapy also provides a benefit to patients with fibromyalgia. Regular massage eases pain in the muscles and improves the patient's range of motion. Massage can also improve the body's ability to heal itself and may help patients who experience anxiety and other mood disorders as a result of the condition.
