Fibromyalgia, Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, Always TiredFibromyalgia is a chronic condition that is often difficult to diagnose.  It predominantly affects women and begins in middle age, though men, teens, and older people may also develop it.  People with this diagnosis sometimes struggle to manage symptoms that leave them extremely fatigued, in chronic pain, dizzy, and depressed.

Unfortunately, most approaches towards fibromyalgia management just focus on trying to keep those symptoms at bay, and never really do anything to address the root cause.  Worse than that, the relief provided by traditional approaches such as medications are only short-lived.  There are a lot of fibromyalgia sufferers out there who are not only looking for answers but also for a route of treatment that addresses the cause of the issue and does so naturally.

Upper cervical chiropractic is a unique approach within the greater chiropractic profession that seeks to detect and correct atlas misalignments.  We focus on this area because when the atlas misaligns, it affects the normal function of the brainstem, which controls many of the critical functions of our body, including respiration, hormone balance, and pain processing.  The brainstem and spinal cord are responsible for transmitting signals to and from the brain.  Distorted signals can lead to abnormal pain processing, as is the case in people with fibromyalgia.

Upper cervical chiropractic has had proven success in helping people cope with fibromyalgia naturally.  In one study of a 31-year-old female with fibromyalgia, it took only 2 months of upper cervical chiropractic care to see a decrease in her symptoms.  Over the course of the entire 18-month long study, she received 5 atlas corrections and reported that she no longer required medications to manage her symptoms.  Upper cervical care at Precision Chiropractic West may be the answer you’ve been hoping for.
