If You Suffer From Fibromyalgia, It May Not Be Your Fault!
↑The common tender points of fibromyalgia↑
If you suffer with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue, you know how demanding life can be. One fibromyalgia patient said it like this…
“For people who take good health for granted, it’s hard to imagine a condition that makes simple tasks great tests of will and determination.”
Contrary to what some people believe, you’re not lazy or crazy. Fibromyalgia is a real disease with real pain.
Maybe your past doctors don’t even think fibromyalgia is a real disease, but you know it is. You feel it every day — when you wake up in the morning, when you try to keep your house cleaned…even simple tasks like cooking dinner become a chore.
Mark Pelligrino, MD (author of The Fibromyalgia Survivor), reported that after studying over 2,000 fibromyalgia patients files, he found two-thirds of fibromyalgia patients started having symptoms after a traumatic event like a car accident, work injury, or a fall.
Another study published in the 1997 issue of Arthritis and Rheumatism, said fibromyalgia is 13 times more likely to occur following neck injury than following a leg injury.
Prescription drugs are at best “masking tape” that covers up the daily warning signs of a painful disease.
Pain pills, even over-the-counter medications, don’t fix the cause of your problem. They may be necessary for a momentary crisis, but using them long term is no way to live. Many of these pain medications are quite addicting and have very real side effects. Below is a chart of the incidence of just two of the common fibromyalgia medications:
Have You Been Everywhere, Tried Everything, And Are Still Suffering?
Fibromyalgia is often called the invisible disease. You look fine on the surface, but underneath you’re often exhausted and in excruciating pain. It is a disease with many symptoms that many do not realize are a part of it it. Here is an illustration visualizing the wide ranging affects of this disease:
The doctors at Spinal and Sports Care Clinic have spent years using and developing gentle treatments to help fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue patients feel better and live healthier, more joyful lives.
Numerous studies have shown the benefits of chiropractic care in fibromyalgia patients:
Dr. Frederick Wolfe, a well-known investigator of fibromyalgia and clinical professor at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, ran a study on fibromyalgia.
He asked patients to indicate drug or alternative treatments that best relieved their pain.
Dr. Wolfe found that changes in lifestyle worked better than drugs and stated “Chiropractic treatment also scored among the most effective measures.”
Another study examined the effectiveness of chiropractic in relieving fibromyalgia symptoms.
After just a few chiropractic treatments, fibromyalgia patients suffered from less pain and fatigue, and actually enjoyed better sleep.(JMPT 2000)
