The Mysteries of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is extremely hard to pin down as a specific condition. It's best described as a syndrome, a recognized collection of symptoms that recur on a chronic basis. No one is 100 percent sure why some people are prone to fibromyalgia, or even what mechanisms bring it about, apart from specific triggers such as emotional or physical trauma. Researchers believe that it may have to do with an unfortunate imbalance between the pain-regulating neurotransmitter Substance P and the pleasure-regulating neurotransmitter serotonin. This causes your pain response to become grossly exaggerated. Whatever the cause, the debilitating results can include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Headaches migraines
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic insomnia
  • Depression
  • General musculoskeletal pain from tight knots of muscle called trigger points

Because the origins of fibromyalgia are unclear, doctors can have a hard time diagnosing it. The standard diagnostic protocol requires that there be painful tender points throughout the body for a minimum of 3 months. But since fibromyalgia symptoms can be transient in nature, you could be waiting a lot longer than that for official treatment of the disorder.

Non-Pharmaceutical Relief From Our Chiropractic Team

Chiropractic medicine has an enormous advantage in dealing with fibromyalgia -- it can normalize physical function no matter what the underlying affliction. By improving your nervous system function, our Dallas chiropractic team can address even tiny musculoskeletal aches and pains that might be greatly amplified by fibromyalgia. We also offer massage therapy, which can loosen the muscle knots that act as trigger points while improving sleep quality. Cold laser therapy can help ease soft tissue and nerve pain naturally and without drugs.

You don't have to wait 3 months for these kinds of safe, all-natural care. In fact, you can schedule our natural pain management treatments as frequently as necessary to help you keep your fibromyalgia symptoms under control.

Take Command of Your Quality of Life

Don't leave your comfort and functionality to the not-so-tender mercies of fibromyalgia. Call APEX Wellness Center at 972-392-9402 to schedule an appointment with our natural health and wellness team.
