If you are afflicted by fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Philadelphia chiropractic office. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly 2% of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia issues. Thankfully, chiropractic adjustments is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-modal therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic adjustments. Furthermore, those positive results were lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
