Muscle Pain And How Chiropractic Attention Is Needed
Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes intense muscle pain that is felt throughout the entire musculoskeletal system. Fibromyalgia is a difficult condition to be diagnosed with mainly because the condition is debated between various medical professionals. Some medical professionals believe that fibromyalgia can have severe effects on an individual’s mobility and functionality and must seek out some form of treatment to help life remain normal.
Treating fibromyalgia can be done through several different means and methods. The most common form of treatment is through the use of medications, but studies are showing that medications used to treat fibromyalgia may actually be causing further health problems. Using natural methods can promote better health and actually increase the overall success of fibromyalgia treatment.
The two main symptoms that are presented by the condition of Fibromyalgia are fatigue and pain. Massage therapy can aid in lessening both of these symptoms by helping the Fibromyalgia suffer to be able to experience less pain, obtain more sleep, and also to help relax some of the tightened and stiff muscles that can contribute to much of the pain. Research has proven that the use of massage therapy as a form of Fibromyalgia treatment can help Fibromyalgia sufferers experience deeper levels of sleep and lessen levels of pain and fatigue. The way that massage therapy accomplishes this is by using the different forms of massage to help oxygenate the body as a whole which can decrease the severity of symptoms that a Fibromyalgia sufferer will experience. Massage therapy can help Fibromyalgia sufferers find relief from their symptoms specifically by:
- Improving Sleep
- Reducing Swelling, Pain, and Stiffness in the Joints & Muscles
- Decreasing Anxiety & Stress
- Increasing Blood Circulation
- Increasing Flexibility
- Increasing the Range of Motion
Forms of Massage Therapy Used for Fibromyalgia Treatment
First of all it is important to note that massage therapy, especially when performed on a Fibromyalgia patient, should be administered by a trained professional, preferably a trained professional who is accustomed to working with patients who suffer from Fibromyalgia. Some of the forms of massage therapy that are commonly used for Fibromyalgia treatment are:
- Swedish Massage
- Positional Release Techniques
- Myofascial Release
- Passive Stretching
- Energy Healing Cranial-Sacral Therapy
- Proprioceptor Neuromuscular Facilitation
- Neuromuscular Therapy
Chiropractic care regularly falls within the category of alternative treatment; however it is becoming much more accepted by both the mainstream medical community as well as an acceptable form of Fibromyalgia treatment. The main determination behind the concept of chiropractic care is to aid in lessening symptoms of pain and other issues by correcting any imbalances in the skeletal configuration. The forms of adjustment of the skeletal structure are made through techniques such as stretches, adjustments, as well as manipulations where the imbalance can be restored and results in lessening of symptoms.
Chiropractic care as used for Fibromyalgia treatment has become increasingly more popular because of the ability for chiropractic care to benefit the Fibromyalgia sufferer and offer pain and stress relief that is so often related to Fibromyalgia. Many Fibromyalgia sufferers suffer from ongoing backaches, foot pain, or leg cramps, and chiropractic care can aid in lessening those symptoms.
Treating Upper Cervical Spinal Stenosis
One of the common problems that is often found among Fibromyalgia sufferers it is a condition referred to as upper cervical spinal stenosis. This condition causes the coverings of the spine to become compressed; this compression can cause severe pain which the Fibromyalgia sufferer can deal with on a daily basis when accurate treatment is not prioritized. Because upper cervical spinal stenosis is commonly prevalent among Fibromyalgia sufferers chiropractic care, using both adjustments as well as manipulations, can aid in relieving the compression on the spine.
