Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. It is usually triggered by physical trauma, psychological trauma, infection, or surgical procedures.
While most fibromyalgia treatment consists of symptom control with medication, Advanced Chiropractic address the root cause of the inflammatory condition by looking at the biomechanical and neurological cause of the pain. Our team approach focuses in on down regulating the nervous system interference thereby reducing the overall pain sensation of the body.
One means of doing this is through gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments changing the neurological input to the brain. Done over time, a new pattern can be established causing a more “permanent” shift of the pain receptors resulting in less pain. All this, while simultaneously stimulating the immune system to allow for more healing.

People who suffer from Fibromyalgia can understand the suffering and discouragement and fatigue you get most the time with this illness.
From the first day I started chiropractic care I stopped taking anti-inflammatory and 8 months later I stopped taking antidepressants. I don't longer take any medication. I feel happy, energized and cured.
It's hard to believe that Fibromyalgia can be cured, but I can assure that today it is happening to me. My experience with chiropractic has been very good. It's the only thing that helped me (and I've tried many different things). I want to thank my chiropractor for his dedication and the wonderful treatment I've received at Advanced Chiropractic.
