If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Weary Chiropractic Clinic sees many people with this particular condition in our Prescott chiropractic office. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical 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 and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-disciplinary 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. Additionally, those positive results were lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
