If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Haque Chiropractic Inc. sees many patients with this particular problem in our Livermore chiropractic clinic. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the USA have fibromyalgia discomfort. Luckily, chiropractic adjustments is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided 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 adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care combined with the multi-disciplinary treatment approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic treatment. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
