Upper Cervical Chiropractic and FibromyalgiaTreatment

Fibromyalgia, a condition that affects the bones and muscles ofthe body, affects 4 million Americans and is thought to affect theway the brain processes pain signals. Because of the pain signalsbeing influenced by fibromyalgia, the painful sensations becomeintensified.

Although it is uncertain what causes fibromyalgia, professionalsbelieve it may be due to an issue of how the brain and spinal cordprocess pain signals coming from the nerves. The bridge between thebrain and spinal cord that allows them to send signals back andforth in the brain stem.

Treatments for Fibromyalgia

The most common treatments for fibromyalgia focus on reducingsymptoms associated with the condition. Exercising helps releaseendorphins to fight pain, depression, and stress that comes withfibromyalgia. While exercising does not get rid of all pain orfibromyalgia symptoms, it does help make the condition lessuncomfortable.

Another treatment for reducing fibromyalgia symptoms ismedication, albeit it does come with side effects. The pain isrelieved temporarily through medication and medication will need tobe used repeatedly as the pain returns.

The body can end up depending on the medication if it becomes adaily routine and continuous use of the medication to ignore thesymptoms will cause the body’s current condition to worsen overtime.

 

Natural Treatment That HelpsFibromyalgia

Although the most common treatments known target thefibromyalgia symptoms without healing the current state of one’sbody, there is a natural treatment that targets what could becausing fibromyalgia while strengthening the body’s system.

The pain behind fibromyalgia has a strong connection to how aperson’s nervous system processes pain signals. Pain signals passthrough the nerves, spinal cord, and through the brain stem (the“bridge” to the brain to body communication). If this “bridge” isdisrupted, signals are unable to pass through appropriately –leading to pain signals being intensified or receiving pain signalswithout reason (“false” signals).

To help correct these pain signals and brain to body function,upper cervical chiropractors look to correcting brain stemfunction. Unlike general chiropractic, upper cervical adjustmentsare gentle, precise, and are focused on the upper cervical spinearea located beneath the base of the skull.

Correcting upper cervical misalignments allow the brain and bodyto communicate properly so it can return to repairing and healingthe body as it should.

Patients with fibromyalgia have noticed improvements in theircondition in as little as one adjustment as removing anyinterference with the brain stem caused by an upper cervicalmisalignment results in the brain to body communication to beginrepairing and healing the body as soon as the upper cervical spineis aligned correctly.

Because these adjustments return the body’s natural ability tocorrect underlying issues that may be the cause of fibromyalgia, itis possible for both the fibromyalgia symptoms and the condition tobe treated effectively simultaneously.

The goal of the upper cervical chiropractor is to adjust thepatient as little as possible as their body heals itself. Overtime, fewer adjustments are made as the patient’s upper cervicalspine becomes strong enough to hold the alignment.
