Getting a diagnosis of fibromyalgia (FM) can be quite scary and something you may not want to face. However, it is important to find out what is behind the pain you are feeling. Chronic fatigue may be another option as it is closely linked to fibromyalgia. Interestingly, both of these conditions may be caused by a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck. This is good news because it is something that can be corrected and could possibly lead to a reduction in symptoms. Keep reading to find out how. First, let’s take a look at some things to be aware of if you think you have fibromyalgia:
- FM usually affects women between the ages of 20 and 50 years, although anyone at any age can be diagnosed.
- There are 18 tender points that fibromyalgia affects and 11 of these must be hurting in order to be diagnosed.
- The pain must have been present for at least 3 or more months.
Finding Relief for Fibromyalgia
As mentioned earlier, fibromyalgia is often linked to a misalignment of the upper cervical spine that is disrupting the proper function of the central nervous system and causing the body to be over-sensitive to pain receptors. Therefore, it is vital to visit an upper cervical chiropractor for a thorough evaluation. Here at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia in Dacula, Georgia, we are trained to find the tiny, specific misalignments that can cause problems with the central nervous system.
Misalignments in either the C1 or C2 vertebrae can put stress on the brainstem, causing it to send improper signals to and from the brain and body. This can lead to a number of health problems. If the brainstem is telling the brain that the body is in pain and there is no pain, fibromyalgia is the end result. We use a gentle method to help the bones to realign themselves without forcing them to do so. This results in a longer-lasting adjustment. Many have seen positive results in their fibromyalgia after receiving care from an upper cervical chiropractor.
