If you are afflicted by fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Andrew Ulvin sees many patients with this particular condition in our Stacy, MN chiropractic practice. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a study published in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-disciplinary treatment 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. In addition, those positive outcomes were long-lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
