If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Drs. Ken Haycock & Tim Vierheller sees many patients with this particular problem in our Massillon, OH chiropractic office. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a study published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care combined with the multi-modal therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. Furthermore, those positive results were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
