Chiropractic Offers Long Term Benefits for Fibromyalgia Sufferers

Clarksdale, Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch natural fibromyalgia treatmentIf you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Kasprack sees many patients with this particular condition in our Clarksdale, Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch chiropractic practice. In fact, 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.

Research Supports Chiropractic Eases Fibromyalgia

In a medical study released in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were split 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 individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.

Fibromyalgia can significantly reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
