If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Berklich sees many patients with this particular syndrome in our Alpharetta chiropractic clinic. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments in addition to the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic care. Furthermore, those positive results were long-lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can greatly reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're suffering from fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
