If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Frank Bendiks, DC, PC sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Naperville, IL chiropractic office. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic 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 or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in conjunction with the multi-modal treatment program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic care. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
