Can you imagine going to sleep, waking up well-rested and pain-free? For those suffering from fibromyalgia, this is wishful thinking. Chronic pain mixed in with a flurry of other symptoms can make living with the condition extremely difficult. Fatigue, memory and concentration issues, bowel issues, and lack of restful sleep are some of the daily challenges sufferers face. Simple, daily tasks can seem like insurmountable obstacles for those with the condition. Should it progress, other symptoms are added to the list and can include anxiety and depression.

The number of those living with this constant and widespread pain is upwards of 10 million people, just in this country alone. To add to its complexity, fibromyalgia can range from mild to severe. Each individual is different and can experience different symptoms at different times. Understandably, this makes treatment challenging – until now!
The specialized field of upper cervical chiropractic care has proven successful when treating those with fibromyalgia. For many, these treatments have resulted in fewer symptoms and less pain. It is quite understandable that those living with chronic pain generally avoid chiropractors. Adjustments made by traditional practitioners can involve cracking and the like, and can evoke alarm, particularly in a person with fibromyalgia. However, upper cervical care is quite different. The doctor will take exact measurements. The aim is to restore the misalignment with great care and precision. This delicate region of the body can alleviate a host of problems when it is restored to its proper condition. For this reason, those with fibromyalgia have good reason to look into visiting Dr. Elan Schrier of Delray Beach, Florida.
Living pain-free doesn’t have to be wishful thinking!
