Fibromyalgia causes pain in the joints, muscles, and musculoskeletal system. Besides that bodily pain, you may experience changing mood, memory issues, and sleep loss.
If you have fibromyalgia and need some relief, we encourage you to see a Jacksonville chiropractor. Whether you have headaches, back pain, or neck pain from this condition, our Jacksonville chiro can diagnose and treat your pain.
The causes of fibromyalgia vary. Some patients have developed the condition one day with no prior indication they would. Others experience psychological stress. Infections and surgery can sometimes lead to the development of this condition, as can physical trauma. Genetics also play a role.
In some cases, you may develop symptoms rapidly. In others, it may take more time for symptoms to manifest.
The biggest symptom of fibromyalgia is pain. This is all over the body, with back pain and neck pain especially common. Sometimes the pain isn’t very intense, but it can worsen as time goes on.
Besides pain, you may notice fibro fog. This is the cognitive part of this disorder that reduces concentration, memory, and focus.
You may have a hard time falling and staying asleep, as your pain may keep waking you up. That leads to exhaustion, which makes this condition much more unbearable.
Your Jacksonville chiropractor will start with some tests to confirm your diagnosis. Thyroid function tests, cyclic citrullinated peptide tests, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and complete blood counts are just some of the preferred blood tests.
With chiropractic care, the pain you feel in your back, neck, and other parts of the body can be treated. Even if this is chronic pain, with regular chiropractic treatments, your pain should be manageable from appointment to appointment.
Massage therapy and/or acupuncture are other treatments that can offer pain relief. Neither of these require medication.
Occupational therapy and physical therapy can also put a dent in your pain. Medications like anti-seizure drugs and prescription painkillers also help.
If you have fibromyalgia, you’ve come to the right place. At Amazing Spine Care in Jacksonville, we put our patients first.
We start with a consultation to get to know our patients better. This is where we sit down with our patients to discuss their symptoms and what they believe is causing their pain.
Then we run our own tests to be sure. Only then will we start our chiropractic care. Through holistic treatments that focus on the source of the pain and not just the symptoms, we can provide pain relief without medication or surgery.
Such injuries and conditions we treat are auto injuries, sports injuries, work injuries, sciatica, headaches, neck and back pain, and fibromyalgia. We also offer pediatric and prenatal care for pregnant women.
We’re led by Dr. Alan Khiger, a licensed chiropractor. To learn more or schedule an appointment today, give us a call at 904-701-3916. You can also visit us at Amazing Spine Care on 6320 St. Augustine Road #10.
