What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia causes widespread pain in a person’s muscles and soft tissues. Patients often report feelings of pain even without injury or apparent inflammation. The pain can be unbearable, even though it doesn't permanently damage the joints, muscles, or internal organs.
The symptoms of fibromyalgia can last days, months, or years without proper treatment. The most common symptoms are:
- Burning pain above and below your waist
- Joint pain all over
- Muscle aches
- Pain in the trunk, neck, lower back, hips, and shoulders
- Chronic fatigue, trouble falling asleep, or waking up feeling tired
- Morning stiffness
- Headaches, memory problems, and difficulty concentrating
- Constipation or IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
- Anxiety or depression
Emotional stress, physical strain, and changes in the weather can influence your symptoms. No matter when your symptoms occur, or how strong they are, our doctors will identify your condition and get to work relieving your pain.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are an option for fibromyalgia pain relief. The injection is prepared from your own blood. By using a sample to create a higher concentration of platelets, more growth factors are delivered to the areas suffering from fibromyalgia, thereby restoring bodily structures and promoting further healing.
We also offer alternative treatments. Laser therapy and trigger point injections will target pain centers to soothe inflammation and influence faster healing. Our chiropractors can improve your nervous and skeletal systems with non-invasive adjustments to your spine, which brings about relief from bone, muscle, and nerve pain in your whole body. Our doctors are determined to help you find the treatment that’s best for you.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
On a physiological level, fibromyalgia may be linked to a chemical imbalance in the brain, a musculoskeletal disorder, sensitive nerve cells, or a hormone deficiency. Fibromyalgia trigger points could also be connected to a specific event, such as trauma from injuries, surgeries, or emotional stress.
Whether there’s a single issue or a complex combination of causes, it’s important for you to talk to our doctors about your fibromyalgia pain. We offer complimentary consultations so that we can discuss your history, symptoms, and treatment options.
