Fibromyalgia and Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

What is fibromyalgia? To a great degree, the answer to that question is still a mystery. While some individuals who deal with this chronic pain condition see the onset follow a trauma, such as a serious illness, while others are blindsided without warning.

Fibromyalgia involves tender points and pain on a body-wide scale. The results can be a drastically affected daily schedule and emotional state. Since doctors are often baffled by this condition, the result is usually a cocktail of prescriptions to try and deal with the various symptoms.

Some have tried to make a connection between fibromyalgia and other widespread pain conditions such as arthritis. However, it is important to note the distinction that arthritis pain is focused on joints while fibromyalgia pain tends to be focused on muscles.

 

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Can Help Improve Quality of Life for Fibromyalgia Suffers

One thing that researchers agree on is that the pain of fibromyalgia is linked to the way that a person’s nervous system processes pain signals. The signals are sent through the nerves, the spinal cord, and the brainstem. As a result, a healthy spine is a key factor in dealing with chronic pain conditions.

When the C1 and C2 are misaligned, these vertebrae can create pressure in the brainstem. This is because these two unique vertebrae are situated at the base of the skull, right where the brainstem meets the spinal cord. Pain processing and other vital body communications may be affected.

At Schrier Family Chiropractic, we strive to provide natural relief for those suffering from widespread pain conditions by correcting this specific misalignment. By the using the NUCCA technique, a very precise and gentle form of upper cervical chiropractic, we identify and correct the misalignments that can affect the central nervous system.
