If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Cyr sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Rutland chiropractic clinic. In fact, 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 study published 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 split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus 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 treatment program reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. Additionally, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the subjects 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.
