Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a painful neurosensory disorder that involves widespread musculoskeletal pain across the body. FMS affects the following:
- Joints, causing stiffness and pain
- Muscles – pain may be dull, aching, radiating, burning, and ranges from mild to severe.
- and other soft tissues
For many FMS patients, they experience other unpleasant symptoms like fatigue, tension headaches, memory issues, as well as emotional problems such as depression, stress and anxiety.
Misalignments of the spine, called subluxations, can be caused by toxins, trauma or thoughts/stress (“the three T’s”). The body is a connected system, and if the bones, ligaments, muscles, joints and tendons don’t work properly, the whole body system is affected. These misalignments can wreak havoc on the nervous system, causing further health issues to FMS patients.
Fortunately, more and more FMS patients are finding that chiropractic care helps improve their symptoms, especially combined with resistance training.
