What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a common syndrome in which a person has long-term, body-wide pain and tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression, and anxiety.
Fibromyalgia Chiropractic Treatment
To keep pain from becoming chronic, pain (from injuries or structural problems) relief must come quickly to keep nerve endings from becoming sensitized. (That applies to people both with and without central sensitization.)
For people with central sensitization, relatively minor injuries can sustain the sensitization process (keep us hypersensitive to pain and other stimuli). Manual therapy or Chiropractic Services, and any exercises prescribed as part of it, should therefore take into account the fact that our bodies react strongly to sensation. Basically, they should be gentle and appropriate to what we can handle without increased symptoms.
