If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Dahlager sees many people with this particular condition in our Noblesville chiropractic office. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a study released in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-modal treatment approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Additionally, those positive results were long-lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
