Fibromyalgia Treatment from your Kennesaw Chiropractor

Fibromyalgia is an elusive disease that is often difficult to diagnose and treat. The doctors at Discover Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Kennesaw offer treatment, and more importantly, relief for patients with this life-hampering illness.

Fibromyalgia

What is Fibromyalgia?

A chronic disease, fibromyalgia affects the musculoskeletal system causing pain and sensitivity throughout the body. No tests are available to diagnose it; rather, diagnosis is based on the number of tender points a patient has. A minimum of 11 out of 18 tender points is needed to diagnose the illness.

In addition to widespread pain and tender points, other symptoms can indicate fibromyalgia, including:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Depression and mood disturbances
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • TMJ

Causes of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia could originate from the trauma of personal injury or auto accident injury. There is also a theory that it is caused by an imbalance in the chemistry of the central nervous system.

How Our Chiropractor Treats Fibromyalgia

More and more people are seeking the services of chiropractors for their fibromyalgia and finding success in some symptom relief. 

One therapy that has proven effective with our patients is ischemic compression. This is a technique where the chiropractor uses pumping strokes to release blood flow to a specific area. In a patient with fibromyalgia, this would be done on one of the 11 pain points. Releasing the blockage of blood at these points alleviates symptoms, including reducing pain, improving sleep patterns, and lessening overall fatigue.
