The Impact of Fibromyalgia in Onalaska, Wisconsin

Fibromyalgia, Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, Always Tired, Tired, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFSFor those suffering from the devastating effects of fibromyalgia, waking up from a good night’s rest and being pain-free is something they can only dream about. Fibromyalgia is accompanied by such symptoms as:

  • Chronic, widespread pain
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Bowel and bladder problems
  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Not getting enough restful sleep

Being able to accomplish day-to-day tasks can be daunting for those that suffer from fibromyalgia. As the condition progresses, depression and anxiety can be added to the list of symptoms.

Fibromyalgia affects as many as 10 million of those living in the United States. It ranges from mild to severe and presents differently for each person. This makes caring for it extremely frustrating for doctors and patients alike. But there is one area of care that often gets overlook, yet deserves some serious attention for those living with this condition.


Natural Relief from Fibromyalgia that Works

Upper cervical chiropractic care is a specific form of chiropractic that specializes in properly aligning the atlas and axis bones – the top two vertebrae of the neck. This has been seen to be successful in helping those with fibromyalgia to have less pain. Why is this the case?

If a misalignment lies in the bones of the upper neck, undue pressure may be being exerted on the brainstem leading to a breakdown in communication between the body and brain. This means that the signals being sent are corrupted and may lead to symptoms like those associated with fibromyalgia.

It is understandable that those suffering from chronic pain are leery about visiting a chiropractor. However, the method we use at Thrive Chiropractic and Wellness Center is gentle and does not cause any pain. We never pop or twist the neck or spine. Rather, we use a low force correction that encourages the bones to move back into proper alignment. Once this is done, the body can begin to heal, restoring communication to and from the brain and body. This often results in a decrease in fibromyalgia symptoms, or it may go into remission entirely.
