Do you suffer from unexplained and widespread pain in your muscles and joints? It could be fibromyalgia, a chronic pain disorder that affects about 5 million people in the U.S., most of them women. Apex Wellness Center is a leading provider of fibromyalgia treatment in Dallas, focusing on a holistic approach that’s designed to relieve painful symptoms while promoting natural healing.
Researchers aren’t sure what causes fibromyalgia, but studies indicate chronic stress or traumatic injury may trigger its development. Scientists feel the injuries somehow trigger changes in the central nervous system that affect how the body perceives pain, making fibromyalgia sufferers more sensitive to stimuli. As a result, pain signals are “fired off” more often than usual, resulting in widespread, recurrent and chronic sensations of pain.
Aching muscles and widespread discomfort are the hallmarks of fibromyalgia. Many people who have the condition also have tender “trigger points” throughout the body that causes local and radiating pain when pressure is applied. Tender points occur most commonly on the back, neck, shoulder, arms, and legs. Although the condition causes symptoms that are commonly confused with arthritis, fibromyalgia is not associated with joint damage. Other symptoms include:
The symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary markedly from one person to another, and they can range from mild to severe.
Although there’s no cure for fibromyalgia, there are several chiropractic treatment options that can be very effective in relieving your symptoms. Since the symptoms of fibromyalgia are related to “misfiring” of the nerves, your treatment will begin with a hands-on evaluation and a chiropractic adjustment to reduce nerve impingement and irritation while optimizing the neural pathways so never signaling is normalized. In addition, massage and other therapeutic approaches can improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, tapping into your body’s natural healing powers to improve symptoms throughout the body. Regular office visits will help ensure your treatment stays "on track" for your needs.
Apex Wellness Center offers comprehensive holistic care for patients suffering from fibromyalgia, helping them manage their painful symptoms without the long-term use of strong and potentially harmful painkillers. Because the symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary from one person to another and can change significantly over time, our chiropractic team focuses on providing custom-tailored treatment plans based on your symptoms, your underlying health, and your lifestyle so you can feel better and improve your quality of life.
