Fibromyalgia is a condition that affects approximately 2-7% (3-20 million people) of the American population.1 It is a condition that affects women 10 times more than men, with symptoms varying from pain all over the body, sleep problems, to poor cognitive ability (cloudy thinking).
It is known that fibromyalgia patients exhibit abnormal activity in how the body perceives pain through the Central Nervous System (CNS), which is made up of the brain and spinal cord. These changes include neurological and chemical changes that cause patients to perceive more pain than what is actually happening in the body.2,3
Healthcare providers are looking at more and more ways to better handle patients suffering with fibromyalgia to improve their quality of life. The current array of relief methods is widely varying on both its methods and the results achieved. In a recent article doctors are professing that alternative therapies may be a better option for relieving fibromyalgia; “Sometimes the magnitude of relief response for simple and inexpensive non-drug therapies exceeds that for pharmaceuticals.”4 Often times due to the overstimulation of the body and its pain receptors many opoid drugs for pain control cannot reduce the pain.

Natural relief for fibromyalgia is what many patients are seeking for relief. Fibromyalgia specialist Dr. Geoff Besso is helping patients get natural relief. Dr. Besso is an Upper Cervical Chiropractor that 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 affects 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.5
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, the healing of fibromyalgia symptoms start to occur.
