If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Terrance Eyerly sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Hazleton, Conyngham chiropractic office. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a study released in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and 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 program plus chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary treatment program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic care. Additionally, those positive outcomes were lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
