Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder that spreads throughout the entire musculoskeletal system. It can be accompanied by sleep disorders, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), migraines, raynaud’s syndrome, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), or chronic fatigue syndrome. Studies may suggest that people who suffer from fibromyalgia may also have a lower pain threshold due to biological factors. There is no solid understanding of what causes fibromyalgia, but recent findings may show that a combination of the following problems can result in this condition:
- Abnormalities within the endocrine system
- Dysfunction within the nervous system
- Genetics (hereditary)
- Muscle tissue abnormalities
- Unusual blood flow
Medications may sometimes be prescribed to manage the chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia. Chiropractic care can also help relieve pain associated with Fibromyalgia with certain techniques. This includes physical rehabilitation through treatments like certain exercises that target pain, dysfunction and can result in restored mobility. There are also other various treatments that can manage stress that comes along with the pain. It’s been proven that chiropractic care has emotional benefits as it correlates to the relief of pain. Stress management treatments include massage, adjustment, and manipulation of the body.
