Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition



FibromyalgiaFibromyalgia is a chronic (long-lasting) condition that can be very disabling. It's characterized by extreme fatigue and widespread body ache that affects the body's soft tissue—the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Tender points most commonly occur in the back, neck, shoulders, lower back, hands, hips, and knees. Fibromyalgia symptoms and related disabilities, which may vary in intensity and duration, may include headache, skin problems, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, or impaired vision. Fibromyalgia pain, which is often worse in the morning or evening, is sometimes described as throbbing, twitching, stabbing, or shooting and may intensify in cold or damp weather, or with fatigue, inactivity or too much activity, stress, or anxiety. Symptoms may wax and wane. The impact that Fibromyalgia disabilities has on daily living, including the ability to work a full-time job, differs among patients. Studies show that Fibromyalgia may be equally as disabling as rheumatoid arthritis. Although the cause of Fibromyalgia is unknown, and people of all ages and races are affected, the illness tends to strike women more often than men.

 

 

How NUCCA treatment for Fibromyalgia can help


Fibromyalgia is thought to be caused by trauma to the upper cervical region of the spine.

This trauma could cause compression of the brainstem, causing Substance P to be released throughout the body. Substance P is a brain chemical, or neurotransmitter, that works as a pain messenger. Abnormally high levels of this chemical may account for the chronic pain in patients with fibromyalgia. By correcting any misalignment of the upper cervical spine, many fibromyalgia sufferers get relief from the disability through NUCCA treatment.
