One of the most misunderstood conditions
That we take care of here at The Specific Chiropractic Centers is a condition called fibromyalgia. Maybe you or someone you know suffers from it.
Some doctors call it a “trash can” diagnosis because when someone has an issue that can’t quite be diagnosed, they tend to get labeled as having fibromyalgia.
We see amazing results from our care with patients who suffer from fibromyalgia. Some people think it has something to do with your muscles, but what we have found is that it has nothing to do with the muscles. The nerves control the muscles, and while you do have tender pain points and deal with chronic pain, we’ve actually found there is a direct connection between fibromyalgia and the central nervous system.
I was reading through an article from the American Journal of Medicine, and it states that there is increasing evidence that fibromyalgia is characterized by augmentation of sensory input that is mediated by the central nervous system. The number one thing that we measure, assess, and look to improve in our office is the central nervous system.
What we found is if we can get the central nervous system to improve, then the fibromyalgia symptoms associated with patients tend to improve as well. It didn’t surprise me at all when I read this. It actually validated the results we see in our office that are connected to fibromyalgia.
