How a Chiropractor Can Help With Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a condition that can turn your entire world upside down. The pain you suffer can be debilitating. One of the worst things about it is doctors may not be sure what is causing it and are often lost as to how to treat it. Your primary care physician may offer medications, which usually only mask the symptoms rather than get to the root of the problem.
At Bakke Chiropractic Clinic in Tacoma, our chiropractor can offer non-invasive, drug-free chiropractic adjustments to treat pain as well as exercises and dietary changes to restore your wellness.
Symptoms of Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia often affects women more than man and family genetics can be a factor. You may experience widespread muscle pain, numbness, fatigue, tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), anxiety, and depression. And many that suffer from fibromyalgia are in such physical pain that they tend to lead a sedentary lifestyle, which only compounds the issues.
How We Can Help!
All these symptoms make sufferers feel like there is no relief, but there is! Our chiropractor will perform gentle adjustments that focus on pain points in your neck, back, shoulders, and other locations. With your bones and joints in the proper place, your body can begin to heal.
In addition to adjustments, we can suggest exercises to get you moving again and strengthen certain parts of your body, which may reduce your fibromyalgia symptoms. From walking to swimming to stretching, we only suggest exercises you feel comfortable in performing.
Finally, we can offer diet changes that may help lessen your fibromyalgia symptoms, such as sharply decreasing your sugar intake. Certain studies have suggested that sugar makes it harder for your body to fight off fibromyalgia symptoms.
