If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Gadsden Family Chiropractic sees many patients with this particular condition in our Gadsden, AL chiropractic office. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a study published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms or anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach with the addition of chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic care. In addition, those positive results were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
