If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees many patients with this particular problem in our Henderson, Nevada 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. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed 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 treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-disciplinary treatment program 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 care. In addition, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
