Fibromyalgia Q & A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a long-term health problem that typically causes widespread, chronic pain throughout your entire body. The pain affects your muscles, bones, and connective tissues.

The cause of fibromyalgia isn’t clear. There might be a genetic influence, as the condition tends to run in families. It could also be related to problems in your nervous system. If you have fibromyalgia, you need to see a doctor who specializes in treating diseases like this.

Dr. Raychouni has considerable experience treating people with fibromyalgia using noninvasive, proven chiropractic techniques.

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

The dominant symptom of fibromyalgia is pain. People who have fibromyalgia might describe it as soreness or intense aching, the way you’d feel after being beaten black and blue. This pain affects most or all of your body.

There are specific points around your body where the pain is especially intense. These trigger points are particularly painful if pressed, which can help in making a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia can cause other symptoms, such as:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Problems sleeping
  • Headaches

Memory and concentration problems are common when you have fibromyalgia. These cognitive challenges are known collectively as fibro-fog.

These symptoms could also be due to other causes. As there’s no lab test for fibromyalgia, you might need to undergo a series of diagnostic procedures to rule out other causes. 

What other conditions affect people who have fibromyalgia?

Some other chronic conditions are more common in patients with fibromyalgia, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Endometriosis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Sleep apnea

How is fibromyalgia treated?

The fibromyalgia treatment program at MiSpine Chiropractic provides numerous benefits and therapies that help you:

  • Relax your muscles
  • Reduce physical tension
  • Detoxify your body
  • Boost your immune system

You’ll also benefit from treatments such as:

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT)

LLLT targets 10 of your trigger points to stimulate healing and ease inflammation.

Ionic detoxification

A relaxing therapy where you place your feet into a special bath that removes toxins and other impurities.

Brainwave entrainment

Brainwave entrainment promotes relaxation and reduces anxiety and stress. Your cognitive function and heart rate variability increase and you feel less pain and tiredness. Brainwave entrainment can also help you sleep better.

Pivotal oscillation platform

You stand on the pivotal oscillation platform while it vibrates, which helps damaged muscle and other soft tissues to heal. The vibrations can also improve your circulation and help with weight loss.
