Fibromyalgia: A Chiropractic Perspective

chiropractic care for fibromyalgia.jpgIf you tend to suffer from unexplained aches and pains throughout your body, including neck pain, back pain, headaches, along with a feeling of general malaise or exhaustion, you may suffer from a condition known as fibromyalgia. This affliction of the fibrous muscle tissue can seriously impair your ability to function, not to mention your quality of life. Fortunately, you can receive treatment to help relieve the pain and other symptoms that make up this disease.

No one knows exactly why some people experience this kind of suffering while others do not. One theory suggests a kinship to autoimmune diseases such as lupus or chronic fatigue syndrome. We do know that the condition tends to manifest itself at 18 specific tender points across all four quadrants of the body, and pain in at least 11 of these tender points indicates a positive diagnosis for the disorder. In these cases, injured muscles tend to retain a protein called "ground substance" that causes painful knots instead of performing its normal role in healing tissues. In addition to aches and pains, you may experience physical fatigue and a mental muddiness known as "fibro fog."

Your Health and Wellness Solution

If you have symptoms like the ones described above, you may find the relief you seek here at Back On Track Chiropractic. Dr. Duca can evaluate your trigger points and other indicators to determine the underlying cause of your discomfort. We then perform therapeutic adjustments to help correct any spinal misalignments that may cause back pain or other contributing issues. 

We also offer trigger point therapy that can help break up those painful knots and enable your tissues to heal themselves. We can even perform cold laser therapy, a non-invasive method for warming the tissues, boosting circulation and relieving pain in an affected area. Regular "maintenance work" can become a part of your health and wellness routine to control your symptoms and enjoy life again.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Was traveling through from Texas and these wonderful people worked me in to their schedule. I have been to many chiropractors and can tell you the good Dr. knew what he was doing here! He adjusted me at a price that was only a percentage of what I would have been willing to pay for relief and I left with my neck turning again. The locals are lucky to have y'all!!!
    Thanks"
