How Can Chiropractic Treatment for Fibromyalgia in Queens Help You?
To understand how chiropractic treatment for fibromyalgia in Queens works, you need a basic understanding of both the principles of chiropractic care and what is known about fibromyalgia. Modern medicine does not yet fully understand fibromyalgia. Several theories, however, exist regarding the causes for the group of symptoms associated with the syndrome. Many of these theories relate to potential disorders of the nervous system, which affect the way in which the body feels pain. People who suffer from fibromyalgia experience extreme sensitivity to external stimuli. These stimuli are felt by the nervous system and translated to the brain, which decides whether or not the body should feel pain as a result of that stimuli. A normal nervous system feels stimuli normally, while it is thought that the nervous system of a person with fibromyalgia is not functioning normally. As a result, people with fibromyalgia endure severe, chronic pain.
Our Queens chiropractor, Dr. James Lee, provides fibromyalgia patients with pain relief and management using chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. Subluxations (misaligned vertebrae) in the spine create disturbances in the nervous system, pinching nerves where they exit the spinal column. These hindrances prevent the nervous system, and, as a result, the body's other systems, from functioning normally. Unfortunately, spinal subluxations are difficult to avoid, as normal everyday stresses — anxiety, physical labor, injury, and chemical stresses — cause them. With regular chiropractic adjustments, our Queens chiropractor restores patients' spines to their proper alignment, which allows patients' nervous systems to function at an optimal level.
For fibromyalgia patients, seeing a chiropractor for fibromyalgia treatment will eliminate nervous system blockages from spinal subluxations, allowing the nervous system to function as normally as possible. With a spine free of subluxations, patients' nervous systems are able to communicate freely with the brain, sending normal signals for pain or less severe reactions to stimuli.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our fibromyalgia chiropractor recommends patients also schedule massage therapy to help reduce muscle tension and pain caused by fibromyalgia. Massage therapy also helps patients reduce mental stress and anxiety caused by enduring chronic pain. Often the mental stress associated with pain is more difficult to endure than the pain itself. Massage therapy not only relieves muscle tension, but it also relieves mental stress, helping patients relax and find peace.
