Fibromyalgia Q & A

Whole Body Healthcare

What is fibromyalgia syndrome?

Fibromyalgia syndrome is a long-term disorder that causes pain in the muscles, joints, bones, and tendons throughout the entire body. Many people suffer the chronic pain as a result of fibromyalgia that leaves them constantly fatigued, depressed, and grappling with countless other health problems. The nurse practitioners and chiropractors at Whole Body Healthcare have seen thousands of fibromyalgia patients over the years and have been able to stop chronic pain.

 

How do I know if I have fibromyalgia syndrome?

Diagnosing fibromyalgia syndrome is more complicated than a simple trip to the doctor’s office. Fibromyalgia syndrome has no specific lab test or blood test that can be accurately performed to make a proper diagnosis. Instead, current guidelines suggest that if you experience pain in the joints, bones, soft tissue, and tendons for three months with an indeterminable cause you can be diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome.

 

Why do I have fibromyalgia syndrome?

There is no precise scientifically-proven reason to explain why you have fibromyalgia syndrome. Instead, doctors believe that the main causes are:

  • Toxins
  • Stress
  • Infection
  • Trauma
  • Genetics

 

The medical staff at Whole Body Healthcare believe the body is one entity with many connected systems. If one system isn’t functioning properly, the whole body is affected.

 

How is fibromyalgia syndrome treated?

One of the chiropractor’s main focuses beyond holistic health and well-being is stress. Subluxations, misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine, is often caused by stress, toxins, and trauma. These subluxations prevent the nervous system - including the brain and spinal cord - from functioning at the optimal level.

When you’re not functioning well, health issues are more likely to occur. By addressing the causes and using natural treatments, the chiropractors at Whole Body Healthcare can help bring back balance to your body, restore function, and eliminate the pain caused by fibromyalgia syndrome.  Your treatment plan often includes manipulations, stretches, and adjustments.

If you’re living with chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia syndrome, the nurse practitioners and chiropractors at Whole Body Healthcare can help.  Call the Whole Body Healthcare office or request an appointment online today to start living pain-free.
