Chiropractic Clive IA Fibromyalgia Pain

Are you one of the estimated six to eight million people that suffer from chronic pain with no apparent cause? Maybe you hurt all over and frequently feel exhausted. You could be suffering from a chronic condition called fibromyalgia. This condition is characterized by fatigue and widespread pain in the fibrous tissues (muscles, ligaments, and tendons) of your body. Contact Clive IA chiropractic clinic today to learn how you can receive the help you need.

According to the American College of Rheumatology, for a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, at least 11 to 18 specific areas of your body must be painful under pressure, with widespread pain lasting at least three months. These areas often include the back of the head, the upper back and neck, the upper chest, hips, and extremities such as the elbows and knees. Most often the pain is accompanied by stiffness.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia vary depending on the weather, stress level, physical activity, or just the time of day. All people experience different symptoms, but the most common are widespread pain; fatigue, and sleep disturbance; chronic headaches and facial pain; heightened sensitivity to odors, noises, bright lights, food, or changes in the weather; numbness or tingling in the hands or feet; and difficulty concentrating.

While this disease is not crippling, life-threatening, or progressive, it can, however, completely disrupt your lifestyle.

"Many fibromyalgia patients are left feeling depressed and hopeless because they see no help for their suffering," says Dr. Robert Adams. "Many patients come to my office thinking they will have to live in pain for the rest of their lives."

According to Dr. Adams, this may not be true. "While fibromyalgia may not be cured, it can be managed, with most patients able to lead full and active lifestyles."

Dr. Adams is a physician with an extensive background in muscle/joint and soft tissue rehabilitation. He has helped countless patients return to pain-free lives without medication or surgery through chiropractic treatment.

Trigger points are sensitive "spots" in the body's soft tissue. They can contribute to the pain of fibromyalgia and cause joint stiffness and constant pain due to restricted blood flow. These "spots" are hard nodules deep in the soft tissue formed from trauma, poor posture and work habits, repetitive trauma, and many other factors. By treating them with chiropractic modalities, these trigger points can be disengaged, causing blood flow and joint function to be restored, thereby helping rid you of chronic pain.

Dr. Adams can help relieve pain from fibromyalgia, as well as other conditions. His goal is to rid the patient of their chronic pain so they can start enjoying life again. Many of his patients have found substantial, if not, complete relief.  Living with chronic pain does not have to be your way of life.
