If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Precision Chiropractic sees many patients with this particular syndrome in our Sayville chiropractic office. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly 2% of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia issues. Thankfully, chiropractic treatment is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical study published in mid-2015, 215 people 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 plan for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-modal treatment approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study people who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic adjustments. In addition, those positive results were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
