Fibromyalgia, Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, Always Tired, Tired, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFS, Fibromyalgia Relief, Chronic Fatigue ReliefFibromyalgia is becoming more and more common, although a better understanding of it still seems elusive. It is hard to diagnose this condition and even harder to find a way to care for it. Symptoms vary from person to person and include such things as widespread pain throughout the body, sleep issues, problems with memory and thinking ability, and a slew of other symptoms that can also be part of a number of different conditions. Therefore, if a patient is suspected of having fibromyalgia, doctors must run a battery of tests to rule out all other conditions that may be the underlying cause.

A study was performed in Germany shedding light on some important information about fibromyalgia. For one thing, they discovered it is linked to a malfunction in the central nervous system and the way pain is processed. A few other things came to light including the following:

How to Care for Fibromyalgia Successfully

Primary care physicians often focus on helping fibromyalgia patients cope with the pain they are feeling. This doesn’t mean the pain will stop – more often it is merely reduced to a manageable level. Since it is now recognized that fibromyalgia comes about when the central nervous system is not working properly, it makes sense to ensure this system is in the best possible working order. One way to accomplish this by visiting an upper cervical chiropractor.

Here at our Stow, Ohio office, we understand the importance of having a properly aligned neck, so these bones do not hinder the function of the nervous system. We use a gentle method to realign these bones as-needed. This helps bring the body back into fully functioning order, often leading to an improvement in fibromyalgia symptoms or an elimination these symptoms altogether.

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Always Tired, FatigueHow the NUCCA Technique Can Help Alleviate Your Fibromyalgia Pain

Fibromyalgia is one of many chronic diseases that people suffer from in the world today. However, you don’t need to feel helpless or hopeless if you are experiencing the pain of fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, one of the most successful relief methods is one of the least well known.

Sadly, there are also still people out there who will tell a fibromyalgia sufferer that the problem is all in your head. Because of this, many do not seek a relief or even a diagnosis. They just take medication for the pain and try their best to go about their daily activities.

It’s also important to note that the genesis of fibromyalgia may have more to do with the neck than with the head, and that’s why upper cervical chiropractic care can help. Here is some more information on this natural and side-effect-free alternative to pain relievers.

Fibromyalgia Patients Can Get Natural Relief

While many in the medical field do not understand fibromyalgia, upper cervical chiropractors are in a unique position to help. This is because we utilize the NUCCA technique to align the top vertebrae in the spine properly. When these bones are misaligned, nerve damage can result in widespread body pain. This is because the bones are right by the brainstem and can affect the entire nervous system. Hence, misalignments such as this are the underlying cause of many chronic conditions.

Most people are used to taking medication. They just feel like the only thing they can do is treat the pain and live with it. Pain meds don’t solve the problem, however. Upper cervical chiropractic offers a real solution to those whose fibromyalgia is caused by a misalignment. Why not seek a consultation today to see if your symptoms can be reduced or even resolved by a few simple adjustments?

Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing you here at the Besso Clinic.

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Always TiredFibromyalgia: The Day to Day Experience

For those living with this condition, nearly every aspect of their life is in some way affected. Because fibromyalgia is a chronic condition, it can be exhausting and frustrating for the sufferer. This inevitably will reach into how they react to those around them. Family and friends do well, therefore, to have an understanding of the condition. This can help strengthen relationships and result in the needed support.

What You Should Know About Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia involves the nervous system and heightens the body's response to stimuli. There are two conditions that are commonly associated with this phenomenon, Hyperesthesia and Allodynia.

Hyperesthesia occurs when the central nervous system greatly increases a person's sensitivity to things like pain, sound, sight and the like.

Allodynia is a similar condition. However, it does not require a stimulus to feel pain. That means that pain may be felt but with nothing actually there to cause that pain.

Sleep plays a vital role in a person's well-being. This is especially true for those who suffer from fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, what is termed restorative sleep is sometimes fleeting for those with fibromyalgia. More than just the quantity of sleep, restorative sleep involves the quality or restfulness of that sleep. This is usually a result of excessive sensitivity to the world around them.

Good News About Fibromyalgia

A young woman, 31 years old, had a series of terrible accidents. The first one occurred when she was just five years old, and the latest happened as an adult. The serious nature of these accidents had left her in chronic pain and taking a host of pharmaceuticals prescribed to help alleviate her symptoms. Over time, she found that this approach was not working for her. She decided to try something different.

She visited an upper cervical chiropractor and finally found the results she was looking for. After adjustments were made to the uppermost region of the spine, her body, and life began to heal.

Having these important vertebrae in proper alignment is crucial for maintaining health. When that alignment is compromised by accident or injury, gentle upper cervical chiropractic care can bring about outstanding and lasting results.

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Always TiredChronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by extreme tiredness and fatigue. Both physical and mental activity may cause the tiredness to worse. However, what sets this tiredness apart is that rest will not provide relief.

There are a number of theories that have been posited about the cause of chronic fatigue. Some of these theories include the idea that a viral infection may be at the source of the disease, or that psychological stress may be the underlying factor.

Some confuse chronic fatigue syndrome with fibromyalgia. Many of the symptoms are similar. Since there is no definitive test for either condition, one person may be diagnosed with chronic fatigue by one doctor but would be diagnosed with fibromyalgia by another.

What Is Chronic Fatigue?

To get a diagnosis, you will need to exhibit no fewer than four of the following symptoms over the course of half a year. Children and teens may receive a diagnosis after just 3 months.

Common Chronic Fatigue Symptoms

Chronic fatigue is now associated with cortisol level changes. This hormone is vital to overall health and body functions. Low cortisol levels can be caused by a misalignment of the upper cervical spine (C1 and C2 vertebrae). Head and neck injuries can easily cause such a misalignment even if the accident wasn’t serious.

Because of this, it is important to see an upper cervical chiropractor to determine if your chronic fatigue may be the result of a misalignment. Dr. Geoff Besso of Stow, Ohio has been specially trained to diagnose and correct such misalignments of the upper neck.

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Always TiredFibromyalgia is a condition that affects approximately 3-20 million people in the Americas.1 It is a condition that affects women 10 times more than men, with symptoms varying from fatigue, pain all over the body, sleep problems, and cloudy thinking. The biggest problems for people are the inability to sleep and chronic inflammation. There are very few relief options available for Fibromyalgia that are effective.

Natural relief for Fibromyalgia is what many patients are seeking for relief, but there are very few options available. One of the newest trends is in natural supplements to reduce the systemic inflammation.2 Many supplements are unregulated and have marginal efficacy. One of the best ways is to keep a food journal to monitor for flair ups. The most common culprits are grains such as bread, pasta, etc. This is a great method for reducing the triggers that exacerbate Fibromyalgia, but it does not treat the underlying cause.

Fibromyalgia specialist Dr. Geoff Besso is helping patients get natural relief. Dr. Besso is an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, who focuses on the Atlas (C1) vertebra. It has been proven that when the Atlas, which is the first bone at the top of the neck, is misaligned from the normal position, it has negative effects on the body. If the Atlas is misaligned, it affects the neurological connection to expressing the genes and properly producing chemicals that control pain and immune system function.3

When the Atlas is in the correct position, the brain and body can begin communicating and functioning as normal. When the body has returned to its normal function, healing from Fibromyalgia symptoms starts to occur.

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Always TiredThe neck and spine are made up of small bones called vertebrae. The top two are referred to as the upper cervical spine. They protect the brainstem. They also allow you to move your head. Because of their location, these bones play a vital role in how well the brain and the rest of the body communicate with one another. They also keep your head upright by supporting its weight (approximately 10 pounds).

In order for your central nervous system (CNS) to function properly, these bones need to be in alignment. Consider just a few things that the CNS is responsible for:

Of course, the CNS does far more than this short list can include, but you get the idea of how vital these processes are to life and health. When these processes are thrown off by an injury, many health problems can result including pain throughout the body. For many, such a misalignment is the underlying cause of chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia.

Research Reveals the Benefits of Upper Cervical Care

Perhaps you have already read testimonies of people who suffered from fibromyalgia and experienced much relief through upper cervical chiropractic. There are also numerous studies that have been done. One such study involving 23 people showed that the patients experienced as much as 90% fewer symptoms after receiving relief.

If you live in the Stow, Ohio area, Dr. Geoff Besso can help you find relief. Dr. Besso is trained in upper cervical chiropractic. This is a specialized form of chiropractic that involves diagnosing and correcting misalignments of the C1 and C2 vertebrae, otherwise known as the upper cervical spine.

A Connection to Upper Cervical Care:

The truth of the matter is, whatever may be causing fibromyalgia, it can be helped by restoring normal function to the upper neck area. This is the common denominator in fibromyalgia. An upper cervical chiropractor, such as Dr. Geoff Besso of Stow, Ohio, will focus on relieving a person's symptoms of fibromyalgia by correcting any misalignments in the upper neck vertebrae. Such misalignments can lead to miscommunication between the brain and body, also contributing to hormone imbalance, cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities, and central sensitization. Call Dr. Besso today and take the first step in your healing process.

Concussion, Neck Pain, Neck Injury, Concussions are a common occurrence in many sports and recreational activities that affect 1.6-3.8 million people in the United States.1 Concussions can happen quickly and often go undetected with little or no symptoms, until they manifest as larger problems years later.

Concussions pose a major challenge to health care providers due their intricate nature. Concussions are also known as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) which happens when the brain moves inside the skull, typically caused by some sort of trauma. Symptoms may be obvious such as nausea, fatigue, and headaches; however, some signs are very small and go unnoticed.

A major concern at the moment is concussions in sports, both amateur and professional. Identifying a concussion after a hard hit is challenging as the markers may not develop until days later. It is common for sports teams and players to “tough it out” to win a game. This risks losing long-term health and stability.

Youth sports have perhaps the highest risk to have long-lasting negative effects as a result of a concussion. The developing brain of any child is more vulnerable to concussions. After the first concussion, the chance of getting a second or third concussion increases by 150%. The standard in on-field concussion screening misses an estimated 40% of concussions, and 50% of high school-age athletes did not self-report concussions. A direct blow to the head does not need to occur for a concussion to take place. A whiplash injury from a blow to the body can cause a concussion. It is time to take a different look at concussion diagnosis and relief to get to the cause of the issue.

Concussion Specialist Dr. Geoff Besso is helping patients get natural relief from concussions in Stow, Ohio. Dr Besso is a specially trained Upper Cervical Chiropractor who deals with the Atlas Bone (C1 vertebra) as it relates to the brain and nervous system function. Clinical studies have shown that when the Atlas bone under the skull is misaligned, it affects the fluid that delivers oxygen and also provides protection to the brain, one of the main side effects of concussions.

When the Atlas is restored to its proper position by an Upper Cervical Chiropractic adjustment that fluid flow is restored, and brain function can return more quickly.2 Concussions and related symptoms can heal at a faster rate when the brain properly receives the appropriate nutrients and oxygen.

fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, always tiredPatients who have chronic fatigue syndrome know well the extreme fatigue that makes up the primary symptom of this condition. It is not just your everyday feeling of being tired at the end of a long day. The fatigue associated with chronic fatigue syndrome will not go away even if activity is limited, or the patient gets an extended rest period.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is also a difficult condition to diagnose. There is no lab work your doctor can order to see if you have this condition. Plus, there are many other conditions that can cause fatigue and need to be ruled out. On top of that, relief options are also limited. Some of the options that practitioners recommend are:

Diet changes can have a measure of success because refined sugars can result in an increase of inflammation and exacerbate the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.

A Natural Option that Gets to the Cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The central nervous system plays a vital role in how the endocrine and immune systems function. Optimal nervous system function is vital for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Dr. Geoff Besso specializes in improving nervous system function through adjustment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae. As an upper cervical chiropractor, Dr. Besso can realign these vertebrae that are situated near the brainstem.

An upper cervical misalignment can put pressure on the brainstem, affecting both endocrine and immune function. Once the misalignment is corrected, the function of these systems can return to normal. For many who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, upper cervical chiropractic is a natural way to reduce symptoms and perhaps even provide a long-term resolution.

Concussion, Neck Pain, Neck Injury, Car Accident, Sports InjuryThe health profession is starting to recognize that concussions or traumatic brain injuries are not sufficiently understood. There are 2.8 million people in the United States who suffer from concussions each year which may lead to disabling post-concussion psychiatric disorders such as depression anxiety and irritability.  If you are one of these 2.8 million people may be tired of people telling you it is in your head, that it is not true because your MRI results were negative or they cannot believe several months have gone by and you continue to have symptoms.  It is now understood that conventional MRI results can be normal even when a concussion can be diagnosed with clear symptoms.1 Thankfully, now more than ever there is more emphasis being placed on training and educating coaches and players to detect signs, as well as examinations conducted at the beginning of the season to be used as comparisons if a concussion is suspected. Dr. Geoff Besso recognizes the importance of education and detection but believes there needs to be more emphasis placed on how we help those who, like you, could be suffering with any of the following post-concussion symptoms:

Dr. Besso has successfully helped people who have been suffering with post-concussion symptoms and feel like other doctors have given up on them.  What many people do not know is that the initial injury causes a disruption of neural messages at the upper cervical (neck) area and if left untreated can lead to other conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Besso specializes in a technique which focuses on the upper neck which when corrected allows the body to function better. Whether the concussion took place a few days ago or years ago Dr. Besso recognizes what life may be like and wants you to know he can help.
