There is a health condition that affects many people, and the symptoms may be written off as part of daily living. Things such as fatigue, chronic pain, poor sleep quality, irritability, and cloudy thinking may actually be part of a more serious health condition. Estimates say that anywhere from 3-20 million people in America suffer from the condition. If you are a woman, you are 10 times more likely to get Fibromyalgia than a man.

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that affects approximately 3-6% of the population according to the National Fibromyalgia Association. Furthermore, if you are a woman you are 75-90% more likely to have the condition. The exact cause is not known, however, the central nervous system is always involved by the spinal cord and brain. Relief options vary from exercise and sleep therapy to heavy duty prescription medications. Many patients with the condition are looking for natural relief options.
One of the problems with fibromyalgia is being able to identify the condition. The general symptoms are not unique and could be related to many other disease processes. A new blood test is helping to better diagnose the condition. The expensive test is now becoming more manageable thanks to the aid of insurance coverage.

Unfortunately, the test does not do anything to manage the condition; it only provides better detection. It may open up new doors for relief in the future but is helping many patients now in some ways. Often it is hard for loved ones of patients to grasp the seriousness of fibromyalgia. Having a good diagnostic measurement helps others to understand that it truly is a problem, not a made up condition.
As a healthcare provider who specializes in helping fibromyalgia patients, I choose a different route. I am an upper cervical chiropractor here in Stow, Ohio. Many patients often come to me as their last hope. The spine plays a crucial role in the condition, specifically the first bone in the neck known as the atlas. If there is a misalignment in this bone even to a small degree, it can have huge effects on the brain and spinal cord, both of which play a major role in fibromyalgia.
Clinical studies performed on patients under upper cervical chiropractic care have shown not only improvement but in some cases complete resolution!
