Fibromyalgia and chiropractic

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia and chiropractic


Avatar f tn Started Chiropractic today for my migraines. The Chiropractor is not "pro fibromyalgia". He thinnks I can get back to running again. Hmmmm.
Avatar n tn Are there any specific treatments in chiropractic care for fibromyalgia? Please and thank you.
Avatar f tn Ouchie. I, too, have Fibromyalgia. I find chiropractic treatments to be a great help in the Fibromyalgia pain, including the thoracic pain you're talking about. The chiropractor even has to keep adjusting a rib in the same general area. I think this helps a whole lot more than any pain medication.
Avatar n tn His education exceeds that needed to be a Chiropractic Dr. and thankfully research like the foundation he is envolved in, is ongoing for fibromyalgia patients. His research agrees with that by many other Dr.s and researchers like "Mary Shomon", who is not a Dr. at all but recognized by the medical community as one of the leading authorities on thyroid disease. She has a series of books on the subject, endorsed by many Dr.s.
Avatar f tn Go to both. Chiropractic will help with the alignment and bring you relief. But, massage will help the muscle tension and make chiropractic work even better. If I could afford massage, I would do it for my fibromyalgia.
564491 tn?1320360393 To top things off, I feel last week, flat on my face, exasberating the pain I already feel, which is pretty severe. Except for telling me I have postural issues, Fibromyalgia, and a little herniated disk problem (maybe), no one has been able to help me with my pain. I am about to give up totally. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn I have degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis and a chronic pain is a part of life for me...the narcotics really did not help my pain and i do not hurt anymore without them than i did with them...i use yoga, chiropractic, ice , heat, massage and i do take a steroid pack here and there...

1560356 tn?1294835100 Many with Fibromyalgia have IBS and/or GERD, as digestive health issues often come with Fibromyalgia. I mentioned the area of the left breast specifically in regard to the sharp pain, because this area can be affected when the GERD is flaring up. As regards to the tight muscles and such, that is a different story. The feeling that no one seems to know what is wrong with you--welcome to the club.
Avatar m tn Since this event I have been experiencing constant spasm in my neck/trapezius for approx 7 months w/o any relief in symptoms. X-ray revealed nothing, and I have been through chiropractic and physical therapy with marginal relief at best ( ~ 24 hours.) medications used include metaxalone, valium and ibuprofen. stiffness has remained constant, w/ a reduced ROM when flexing my neck laterally.

Avatar m tn I've had acupuncture done myself and I highly recommend it for numerous symptoms and/or conditions. I recently read that the military was doing acupuncture. From the article (source below), "In one case, a patient broke into tears when the severe pain he had been suffering from for more than a year subsided within moments." I no longer listen to people who are skeptical about alternative medicine. I've been there, done that and am STILL doing it and with good reason....

Avatar n tn Chiropractic treatment.
Avatar n tn I have had inflamed ligaments in my spine for 2 years now. They just started hurting one day, and I have been told it is a result of my fibromyalgia which I was diagnosed as having 5 years ago. Last summer, I was diagnosed with 7 pinched nerves in my spine as well. There were 4 severely pinched ones in my neck, and three more in my lower back. As a result of chiropractic treatments, the nerves are no longer pinched, but the ligaments are still inflamed.

1336585 tn?1275709112 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.

I get up several times to go to the restroom. I have been having alot of pain in my bladder and back and going to the doctor Tuesday. It is so hard to get motivated when your in pain. You don't even want to move.
