Chiropractic: A Natural Approach To Treat Fibromyalgia

Many people are now seeking natural remedies for fibromyalgia, and chiropractic care is at the forefront of the natural approach.

Chiropractic treatments are one of the most frequently considered, especially for pain management and to improve the range of motion of the joints.  

Research on chiropractic and fibromyalgia revealed that 30 chiropractic treatments can improve pain by up to 77 percent. Other studies showed an improvement in sleep by 63 percent and a reduction in fatigue by almost 75 percent.

These positive findings were recorded in a small preliminary study performed in Canada with documented improvements in joint mobility and reduced pain intensity while using various chiropractic techniques such as spinal adjustments, stretching and soft tissue therapy.

Some people with fibromyalgia may fear that chiropractic adjustments could trigger the pain, but this myth is farthest from the truth. In fact, the results show that chiropractic patients were satisfied with their overall care.

So, if you are looking for better control of fibromyalgia symptoms, it is worth considering this form of therapy.
