Fibromyalgia Relief with Chiropractic

Chiropractic Care Considered Effective for Fibromyalgia Pain in Woburn

If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Ellis sees many patients with this particular problem in our Woburn chiropractic office. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly 2% of all adults in the USA have fibromyalgia pain. Luckily, chiropractic treatment is one treatment option that can provide positive results.

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Lessens Fibromyalgia Pain

In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan 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-modal therapy approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study people who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic adjustments. In addition, those positive results were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.

Fibromyalgia issues can greatly reduce your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
