If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Jung sees many patients with this particular problem in our Pinole chiropractic clinic. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States 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 symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care combined with the multi-modal treatment approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic care. Furthermore, those positive outcomes were lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can substantially reduce your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
