If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Alliance Chiropractic sees many patients with this particular condition in our Tulsa chiropractic practice. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care combined with the multi-modal therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic care. In addition, those positive outcomes were lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
