While fibromyalgia cannot be cured, its painful symptoms can be managed without the use of medication through chiropractic treatment. If you are tired of taking medication every day to temporarily hide your pain, learn how chiropractic can help you.
What is Fibromyalgia Pain?
Fibromyalgia causes stress, emotional pain, fatigue, mental confusion, and physical pain throughout the body. Pain occurs at known points in your elbow, hips, buttocks, limbs, neck, shoulders, knees, and more. Other health conditions including TMJ, depression, and anxiety can co-occur with fibromyalgia.
Since the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown and there is no cure, treatments focus on reducing the symptoms each patient feels. As such, the best approach is always personal since two fibromyalgia sufferers may experience different symptoms.

Our Kalamazoo Chiropractor has helped many fibromyalgia patients find relief from their aches and pains. Chiropractic is effective at reducing inflammation, pain, and tenderness in the body. Chiropractic also strengthens the nervous system.
When your nervous system is strong, then all the systems in your body will get the brain-body feedback they need to work optimally. Bringing your nervous system back to a state of good health is our first step in fibromyalgia pain relief. We do this by removing subluxations in the spine, which the nervous system uses to communicate.
Regular chiropractic adjustments can reduce the degree to which your fibro trigger points react. Sensitive points that cause you a lot of pain can be desensitized so you feel better. This takes time, but many patients report it greatly helps.
We keep our treatment conservative since we know that doing too much can overwhelm your body if you have fibromyalgia. Our goal is always to restore your body to a state of good health, reduce pain, and increase mental and physical wellbeing. To help you enjoy a good quality of life, we may recommend nutritional supplements or offer lifestyle suggestions that can decrease your pain.
