Let’s begin by breaking down the word Fibromyalgia:
Fibro = fiber
Myo = muscle
Algia = pain

Firbomyalgia syndrome is defined as a chronic syndrome, a grouping of signs and symptoms characterized by widespread muscle, bone, and joint pain. It affects more women than men at a ratio of 9 to 1.
The American College of Rheaumatology states that Fibromyalgia Syndrome affects as many as 6 million people in the U.S. That’s 1 in 50!
On the other hand, there is a lack of proper diagnosis. The National Foundation for Fibromyalgia states that as many as 12 million Americans suffer from fibromyalgia syndrome, but go undiagnosed due to it’s elusive nature. This basically means that many people walk around in constant pain not knowing what is going on with them.
Fibromyalgia syndrome is very debilitating. At Besso Clinic of Chiropractic, we see in our patient histories that it progressively worsens over time. It never stays at one level. Because of it’s debilitating nature, FMS affects many people. Family members, co-workers, and children are also affected as it steals life from them while taking care of their loved ones.
However, there is hope for those suffering with fibromyalgia syndrome. Do not believe that you have to live a life like this. Let me share with you our most recent fibromyalgia success story ...
"When my friend first told me about Upper Cervical Care and how The Besso Clinic of Chiropractic was able to help her, I thought it would definitely be worth a shot. I had been suffering from Fibromyalgia, and severe muscle pain since I was 36 years old, and I am now 67 years old. The last 5 years have been very bad. My body just hurt everywhere! I couldn’t get around and do the things I liked to do, so I thought I’d see what Upper Cervical Care was all about. I had tried other things and gone to my family doctor but I just couldn’t afford all the medication they wanted me to take.
At my first visit, and all of the following visits I’ve been treated excellent. The staff here really care about their patients. They are angels! I like everything about The Besso Clinic of Chiropractic!
I’m so thankful my friend told me about The Besso Clinic because I now feel wonderful! I feel so very, very good. My metal outlook has improved and I have more energy. Best of all the pain is gone. I have been able to not use my cane as much anymore. It’s like having a new body!
I think The Besso Clinic of Chiropractic is great. I tell people that I have no insurance to cover me, it comes out of my pocket. I’m doing this for myself. NUCCA care works better than anything I have ever tried."
