Fibromyalgia is becoming more and more common, although a better understanding of it still seems elusive. It is hard to diagnose this condition and even harder to find a way to care for it. Symptoms vary from person to person and include such things as widespread pain throughout the body, sleep issues, problems with memory and thinking ability, and a slew of other symptoms that can also be part of a number of different conditions. Therefore, if a patient is suspected of having fibromyalgia, doctors must run a battery of tests to rule out all other conditions that may be the underlying cause.
A study was performed in Germany shedding light on some important information about fibromyalgia. For one thing, they discovered it is linked to a malfunction in the central nervous system and the way pain is processed. A few other things came to light including the following:
- Those with fibromyalgia may feel pain on both sides of the body even when only one side is actually being affected.
- People with fibromyalgia have a much lower threshold for pain than others.
- Fibromyalgia patients feel pain at a much lower level.

How to Care for Fibromyalgia Successfully
Primary care physicians often focus on helping fibromyalgia patients cope with the pain they are feeling. This doesn’t mean the pain will stop – more often it is merely reduced to a manageable level. Since it is now recognized that fibromyalgia comes about when the central nervous system is not working properly, it makes sense to ensure this system is in the best possible working order. One way to accomplish this by visiting an upper cervical chiropractor.
Here at our Stow, Ohio office, we understand the importance of having a properly aligned neck, so these bones do not hinder the function of the nervous system. We use a gentle method to realign these bones as-needed. This helps bring the body back into fully functioning order, often leading to an improvement in fibromyalgia symptoms or an elimination these symptoms altogether.
