If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Maurice J Cyr sees many patients with this particular problem in our Rutland chiropractic practice. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published 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 and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-disciplinary therapy approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
