Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal condition that consists of pain symptoms and fatigue that can make diagnosis a challenge. Through chiropractic therapeutics, individuals can find relief from pain, fatigue, inflammation, and improve their quality of life. Individuals dealing with fibromyalgia and searching for answers should consider consulting a chiropractor to determine what treatment options will provide the most benefits. Treatment can be as much of a challenge without clear underlying issues. This often leads to frustration when trying to develop a treatment plan that works.

It is believed that fibromyalgia causes the brain and spinal cord to transmit amplified/overresponsive signals. The exaggerated response of the neural pathways in the spine and body generate chronic pain. This is where specific diagnostic tools for assessing symptoms, underlying cause/s, and treatment development are necessary. Risk factors include:

Chiropractic Therapeutics

Chiropractic therapeutics is a safe, gentle, non-invasive treatment option that can help alleviate body pain and swelling. Options include:

  • Spinal re-alignment
  • Physical therapy/massage for improved nerve circulation
  • Manual manipulation
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Health coaching

When the body is rebalanced it can better manage symptoms because of the improved nerve circulation. Home treatments can include:

  • Exercise
  • Stretching
  • Heat therapy
  • Ice therapy

A full medical team consisting of the doctor, physical therapist, massage therapist, and chiropractor could be utilized to maximize results and ensure the highest quality of life.

Body Composition

Muscles and The Immune System

Increasing muscle mass is a great way to improve body composition and boost the immune system. Research shows that senior adults with greater skeletal muscle mass have an increased number of immune cells in the blood. This indicates that muscles and the immune system are interrelated.

When the muscles are worked out, myokines are released. These are hormone-type proteins that strengthen the immune system that helps protect against diseases. A study revealed that regular exercise increases the release of T lymphocytes/T cells. Regular exercise also helps reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, obesity, various cancers, and cardiovascular diseases.
