If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center sees many patients with this particular syndrome in our Parma, Middleburg Heights chiropractic office. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a 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 or anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-modal treatment approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic. Furthermore, those positive results were long-lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
