If you are afflicted by fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Bill Kroner sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Yakima, WA chiropractic practice. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical study released in mid-2015, 215 adults 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 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 care (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 approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic. Additionally, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
