Neurologically based chiropractic care seeks to get to the root cause of the health concern, not just the surface symptom. Unfortunately, when pain is severe, it’s difficult to see past just getting the pain to go away. This rings especially true for patients that suffer with fibromyalgia.
This disorder is a chronic, musculoskeletal pain that includes sleep issues, anxiety, depression, and memory problems. Patients with fibromyalgia experience an increased sensitivity to painful stimuli, and research shows that the root of fibromyalgia comes from unbalanced activity in the spinal cord.
Chiropractors have been researching and working with the function of the central nervous system for over 120 years! Neurologically based chiropractic care has been shown to improve the nerve activity that causes fibromyalgia. One study showed that 120 patients who included chiropractic in their treatment for 12 weeks saw greater improvement in their pain and other symptoms than those who didn’t implement chiropractic care. Those improvements were still present even a year later!
Adding specific, scientific, chiropractic care can help patients regain the freedom, health, and pain free life they wish to live.
“Very impressed with Dr. Micheal. I feel better mentally and physically.”
I’ve had severe pain for years now. I had severe pain in my back, neck, ringing in my ears, chronic fatigue and numbness in my legs, arms and feet. Some days it was hard for me to function properly because of the pain. I would find a temporary fix with physical therapy and I tried seeing an orthopedic doctor, neurologist and rheumatologist. When I first heard of chiropractic care, I was skeptical with the methods of treatment and had my doubts. But overtime, I was satisfied with my progress and started noticing less pain. The office environment is excellent, and the staff is always so joyful and uplifting. My husband started care and has also noticed less pain, improvement in his walking and more energy.
I would most definitely recommend neurologically based chiropractic care to others who are sick, suffering, or in pain. I love the way they educate you so you can understand what they do to help you! – Ginger
