This title might not be the best question. A better question might be: "Can ANYTHING help fibromyalgia?"
Fibromyalgia (and its cousin Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) can be very difficult to cure because its cause is still unknown. Please read the Johnson Family Chiropractic Fibromyalgia page for more information.
The key to treating fibromyalgia is personal, empathetic, individual health care. One-on-one care is especially important since no one therapy has been proven more effective than any other therapy for the treatment of fibromyalgia. This means that a therapy that may work wonders for one person may not help another. Fibromyalgia demands flexibility in treatment.
Believe it or not, the best research-supported therapy for fibromyalgia relief is exercise! Although exercise may sound painful at first for a person with sore muscles and joints, clinical studies of low-impact exercise (like an exercise bicycle) have been shown to help nearly a third of fibromyalgia patients.
Since proper motion seems to be essential in the joints of fibromyalgia patients (and, indeed, with everybody), the low-force chiropractic adjustment is an excellent way to restore proper motion to spinal and extremity joints. The Activator instrument is the most popular low-force adjusting instrument in the world, and for good reason. The soft
rubber tip provides as gentle a chiropractic experience as possible.
We are as eager as you are to find a solution or cure for everyone with fibromyalgia! Until a cure is found, the personalized care you'll find at Johnson Family Chiropractic may be your best path to health. Contact your Peoria chiropractor today!
