If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Chanatry Chiropractic sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Jacksonville chiropractic clinic. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical study 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 or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided 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 area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary treatment program reported greater benefits 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 care. Furthermore, those positive outcomes were long-lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
