If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Bogan sees many patients with this particular syndrome in our Tulsa chiropractic office. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy plan for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-disciplinary therapy approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic. Additionally, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
