Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Treatment In Lubbock

Fibromyalgia is a tricky chronic condition, characterized by chronic pain. At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, our chiropractic staff is experienced in treating fibromyalgia pain using holistic, natural treatments.

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia can look different from person to person. Many sufferers deal with chronic pain, chronic fatigue, cognitive problems, and mood instability. Some people with fibromyalgia also report feeling tingling or numbness in their face, hands, arms, legs, and feet. Over 90% of fibromyalgia sufferers are female, and many people with this condition also suffer from depression, TMJ, IBS, and migraines. Female sufferers often experience intense menstrual cramps. While medical professionals aren't sure exactly what causes fibromyalgia, it's often tied to a traumatic physical or psychological event. Some fibromyalgia seems to appear without any cause. Many doctors believe that fibromyalgia may be the result of muscles that are constantly tense, creating a variety of symptoms that range from unpleasant to debilitating.

How Can A Chiropractor Help?

We believe in treating fibromyalgia with a variety of holistic treatments. Rather than using medication to cover up symptoms, we attack the actual cause, providing long lasting relief. One of the treatments we use most for fibromyalgia is therapeutic massage. Massage can promote a sense of well-being, increase blood flow to areas in which you've been experiencing pain, relief of depression, anxiety, and other mood symptoms, and an improvement in immune system functioning.

As chiropractors, we know that fibromyalgia symptoms can be made worse by the misalignment of the spine. When your spine is not in line, nerve endings can be irritated, making symptoms even worse. We use safe, gentle spinal alignment techniques to help you find relief.
