If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Michael Craven sees many people with this particular problem in our Land O' Lakes, FL chiropractic practice. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical study released in mid-2015, 215 women and men 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 adjustments combined with 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 patients who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. In addition, those positive outcomes were long-lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
