If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. David N. Block Family Chiropractic sees many patients with this particular syndrome in our Chesapeake chiropractic office. Actually, 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 medical study released 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 symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy plan for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in conjunction with the multi-modal therapy program reported greater benefits 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. Additionally, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
