If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Conlee sees many people with this particular problem in our Tucson chiropractic office. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports 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 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 plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-modal therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. In addition, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can greatly reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
