Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia TreatmentAt Optimal Health Spine & Wellness, we offer natural, non-surgical pain relief options for those living with fibromyalgia in the Burien, WA area. We provide several alternative treatment options to help you cope with the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is the most common chronic pain condition in the United States. This condition affects up to 1 in 50 people. Women are more likely than men to develop the condition, but it is seen in men as well.

There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to fibromyalgia, but it’s believed that this condition affects the way the brain perceives pain in the body. This can cause it to be intensified and spread throughout the body.

Fibromyalgia can be difficult to diagnose. Common symptoms are frequently seen in many other conditions.

  • Pain
  • Excessive Sleeping
  • Mood Swings
  • Fatigue
  • Memory Loss
  • Brain Fog
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Many patients with fibromyalgia also have other overlapping conditions.

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Migraines

Fibromyalgia Treatment Options

As a fibromyalgia chiropractor, in addition to chiropractic care, we offer several complementary therapies. This alternative medical suite of care helps our patients dealing with the pain and discomfort of fibromyalgia.

Our whole-body wellness approach to fibromyalgia includes chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, physical therapy exercises, recommendations for lifestyle adjustments, and nutritional recommendations.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments help to realign your body. This strengthens the connection between the body, nerves, and nervous system, resetting the nervous system and allowing the brain to process pain more accurately. Some patients even feel pain relief after just a single visit.

With our drug-free pain relief services, there is no worry of addiction to pain medication. You don’t have the additional stress of the body trying to process drugs.

Fibromyalgia Massage

Massage therapy is an excellent option for patients dealing with fibromyalgia. Massage helps to reduce the body’s stress, helps to relieve pain, decreases feelings of anxiety, and helps with the body’s overall healing capabilities.

A decrease in pain and release of natural endorphins, the body’s natural pain relievers, can allow you to be more active. This is a key part of dealing with fibromyalgia pain. Massage is an excellent treatment option to have at our disposal for the physical and mental aspects of fibromyalgia.

Therapeutic Exercises

Physical therapy and exercise are an essential part of treating fibromyalgia pain. Because your pain can be so severe, it can be tempting to stop moving because the pain becomes too much to bear. When this happens, you begin to lose muscle tone and can actually make your condition worse.

This is where our full-body approach comes in to play. When you are receiving regular chiropractic adjustments and massage to help with symptoms, it makes moving and exercising easier.

Healthy Lifestyle Adjustments

The recommendations we offer regarding your lifestyle will depend significantly from one patient to the next. For example, a patient that spends their entire day behind a desk working will likely be advised to take short, frequent walks throughout the day.

Better Nutrition For Better Health

Nutrition plays a massive role in the overall health and well being of our bodies. Your diet is even more crucial when you are dealing with a chronic health condition like fibromyalgia. We often make recommendations to make sure your current diet is as supportive as possible. We may also suggest adding specific supplements to optimize management of your condition and symptoms.
