FIBROMYALGIA AND SLEEP HELPED BY CHIROPRACTIC CARE

The simple fact is that millions of Americans lay awake in their beds at night tossing and turning, unable to sleep because of stress, and a number of other challenges being faced in their lives. Sadly, insomnia can disrupt your life, and the lives of your loved ones, making the simplest tasks seem insurmountable. Insomnia can even damage your personal relationships and your job.
But did you also know that insomnia can lead to debilitating conditions like fibromyalgia and chronic pain, when not treated by Chiropractic Care?
Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic pain syndrome that primarily affects women. The syndrome includes widespread pain in muscles, ligaments, and joints as well as fatigue and trouble sleeping.
New research from Norway shows that women with sleep disturbances were THREE times (3x) more likely to develop fibromyalgia. The study included data from over 12,000 women over the course of ten years. While this link between fibromyalgia and sleep still needs further research to be fully understood, the researchers recommended that early intervention into sleep disorders could prevent future chronic pain.
Chiropractic Care and Fibromyalgia - Ribley Family Chiropractic - Woodstock GAFor people that already have fibromyalgia, exercise and chiropractic are two natural options for minimizing pain without the adverse effects of drugs.
New research has shown that gentle stretching, yoga, and tai chi can benefit fibromyalgia in a number of ways. In 2010, two different medical studies indicated that when compared to conventional treatment methods, patients who participated in yoga and tai chi experienced enhanced sleep quality, better physical symptoms, and improvements in mood, depression, and anxiety.
Chiropractic is another powerful, natural method to relieve the pain of fibromyalgia for many patients. One study looked at patients who were suffering with chronic fibromyalgia. After receiving chiropractic treatments, the majority of patients improved significantly, experiencing decreased pain intensity and fatigue as well as better sleep quality. Yet another study found that chiropractic and exercises were an effective way to reduce pain and disability.
