If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Ronda Dalton sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Rochester Hills, MI chiropractic office. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical study released in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were assessed 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 treatment plan for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. In addition, those positive outcomes were lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
