Fibromyalgia is believed to affect up to 4% of the US population, or as many as 12 million people. It's a chronic condition whose hallmark symptoms include widespread fatigue, pain, and muscle soreness, as well as some emotional and cognitive affects ("fibro fog"), as well.
Interestingly, there are a lot of unanswered questions about fibromyalgia among the medical community, including what exactly the underlying cause is. Researchers do know this condition affects women far more often than men; however, it has been diagnosed in males and females of all ages. At APEX Wellness Center, our Dallas chiropractor team, led by Dr. Erin Stark Calaway, has worked with hundreds of people over the years struggling with their day-to-day activities in the face of this challenging condition, and we're confident we can help you or your loved ones, too.
One of the leading theories about fibromyalgia is that symptoms are rooted in an over-the-top, highly sensitive activation of pain signaling within the nervous system. Services such as chiropractic adjustments can actually "reset" these pain signals, as well as relieve stress and tension in the body. Together, these effects can help reduce pain and other symptoms, especially when provided alongside corrective exercises, massage therapy, and other holistic, integrative approaches.
Many of the drugs and medications typically prescribed for people who suffer from fibromyalgia come with a whole host of side effects, especially if taken for a prolonged period of time. Our services can help manage your chronic condition without exposing you to unpleasant side effects or adverse reactions and are safe for children, men, women, and seniors.
Research shows that maintaining a balanced, nutritionally-dense diet can help manage symptoms of fibromyalgia as well as any other underlying conditions you or your loved one may be living with. Our Dallas chiropractic team can provide actionable tips and practical advice to help you maximize your overall well-being via the age-old adage which purports: "Let they food be thy medicine."
