Fibromyalgia is often treated with multiple medications. NSAIDs may be recommended to treat inflammation and reduce pain. Analgesics are also prescribed for pain relief. A sleeping pill may be prescribed to help a patient sleep through the night. These are just a few of the ways doctors approach the condition. However, the results vary, unwanted symptoms abound, and none of these medications get to the underlying condition so as to provide long-term benefits. 

Sleep, exercise, and a proper diet are also often recommended.

Natural Fibromyalgia Relief

The underlying cause of fibromyalgia seems to have something to do with both the function of the brainstem as well as the proper flow of blood to the brain. Because of these factors, some are turning to upper cervical chiropractic care and finding genuine help for their condition. The top two bones in the spine (C1 and C2) sit at the base of the skull. If misaligned, they can affect both brainstem function and the arteries that provide blood to the brain.

If you are suffering from fibromyalgia, especially if you have a history of head or neck trauma, upper cervical chiropractic may be able to provide the natural, long-lasting help you’ve been searching for to treat fibromyalgia. Schedule a consultation to learn more about the benefits of this precise and gentle subspecialty of chiropractic care.
