If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Linton sees many people with this particular condition in our Mt Sterling chiropractic practice. 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 is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical study 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 and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy plan for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care in conjunction with the multi-modal therapy approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can significantly reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
