Fibromyalgia can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to cope with. By the time a person gets a diagnosis, he or she has been through multiple tests to rule out other illnesses, numerous doctor’s visits, and a gamut of other things that has him so worn out it is hard to manage. Fibromyalgia is known for:
- Extreme tiredness
- Widespread pain throughout the body
- Inability to get proper sleep
- Mood changes, along with depression and anxiety
- Inability to think clearly called fibro or brain fog
For people suffering from this condition, the main focus is finding relief. Often, the help available through traditional means are medications that focus on the symptoms rather than the underlying cause. Additionally, side effects can be a big problem associated with prescription drugs.

Fibromyalgia Relieved by Having a Healthy Spine
One area that has seen success in treating fibromyalgia is that of upper cervical chiropractic care. Why does this form of chiropractic help? I focus my attention on making sure the top two bones of the vertebrae are in proper alignment. These bones are vital to the health of a person because their job is to protect the brainstem. However, if they become misaligned, the opposite is true. They can actually hinder the brainstem from doing its job properly. Pressure from the misalignment is put on the brainstem causing the abnormal flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid. The nervous system is affected and may no longer send the proper signals to and from the brain and body. This means that the body tells the brain there is extreme pain when in fact there is little or no pain.
I begin my examination by looking closely at the upper neck to see if a misalignment actually exists. If so, I use a gentle technique that realigns the bones of the neck in a natural way allowing the healing properties of the body to take over and repair the damage done. Once realigned, patients often report seeing a large reduction of their fibromyalgia symptoms. Some see them go away completely.
