If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Szilagyi sees many patients with this particular problem in our Harleysville chiropractic clinic. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released 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 and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-disciplinary 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 therapy without chiropractic care. Additionally, those positive outcomes were lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can substantially decrease your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
