If you’re someone that suffers from fibromyalgia, then you definitely know how painful the symptoms that come with this disease can be. Tingling, pain, fatigue and sleeplessness are just some of the symptoms that fibromyalgia causes. With this disease and the chronic pain associated with it, just getting through your day can be tough. While there is no cure for fibromyalgia today, there are treatments that help to reduce the painful side effects. You may have tried different medications like painkillers and antidepressants to help control and reduce symptoms, but these drugs come with their own set of side effects as well. Not to mention, they don’t always provide relief to your initial symptoms. But at Pelphrey Chiropratic, we believe that there are natural treatment options that don’t come with side effects that most traditional medications do. Chiropractic care, acupuncture, meditation and yoga are just some examples of natural treatment options to relieve the painful symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.

Chiropractic Care

If you’ve just about given up and are frustrated with modern medicine letting you down, then you should give a natural treatment option a try. Believe it or not, chiropractic care is an effective treatment option for fibromyalgia. Chiropractors firmly believe that your body is a fully connected system, so if one part of your body is out of alignment then it can lead to an imbalance in your whole skeletal structure. This is what causes you so much pain. But after a few adjustments from the highly trained chiropractors at Pelphrey Chiropractic, you can find relief from your chronic pain.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient form of traditional Chinese medicine has been used to treat many diseases. And according to Healthline, fibromyalgia is one of the diseases that acupuncture has been known to help treat. How it works is that very thin needles are inserted into various pressure points on your body to relieve pain. It’s been proved in many studies that this simple treatment actually helps with the pain and stiffness that fibromyalgia causes.

Meditation

Meditation has been known to help in changing the way your brain functions as a whole. As you might guess, this is very helpful in treating fibromyalgia because it changes the way your brain processes pain signals. It helps your body heal itself by calming your mind and relaxing your whole body.

Yoga

Going hand in hand with meditation, yoga also helps to calm your mind and body. This also helps change the way your brain processes pain.  This is why yoga and meditation are so effective. According to the Mayo Clinic, the slow movements in yoga paired with deep breathing and relaxation help control the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
