Are you suffering from widespread bodily pain? You may have fibromyalgia. Our doctor of chiropractic medicine can help identify your symptoms and develop the treatment plan you need to relieve your pain and get back to working and enjoying an active lifestyle.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain in muscles and soft tissues. Pain and tenderness can be felt even when there’s no injury or inflammation. Although this condition doesn't permanently damage the muscles, joints, or internal organs, the pain can be unbearable.
Regenerative medicine is the basis of our fibromyalgia pain relief treatments. Regenerative medicine strengthens your body’s natural healing ability and amplifies the process to repair, renew, and regenerate damaged cells.
Treatments containing stem cells and growth factors are a method of treating this painful condition. Stem cells have an ability to divide, differentiate, and develop into whatever tissue cells require regeneration. We use donor growth factors and stem cells in our treatments. By injecting young and healthy mesenchymal stem cells along with growth factors and exosomes at the site of your pain, we can assist the innate ability of your body to heal itself.
Another branch of regenerative medicine focuses on your blood platelets. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are prepared by separating platelets in a sample of your own blood. After using this sample to create a higher concentration of platelets and growth proteins, we inject that into an injured area or trigger point that’s causing your fibromyalgia symptoms. The growth factors help your body restore bodily structures, and platelets call stem cells to the scene for further healing.
Since we are a full-service medical clinic, we offer alternative treatments to regenerative medicine. Chiropractic care is a therapeutic option to improve your skeletal and nervous system function. We also perform laser therapy and trigger point injections to target pain centers and reduce inflammation, thereby relieving pain and promoting faster healing. Our doctors are determined to help you find the treatment that’s right for you.
The symptoms of fibromyalgia vary from person to person and can last days, months, or years, without treatment. The most common symptoms are:
- Deep, widespread or burning pain above and below your waist
- Pain is in the trunk, neck, lower back, hips, and shoulders
- Muscle aches, or joint pain all over
- Anxiety or depression
- Chronic fatigue, trouble falling asleep, or waking up feeling tired
- Morning stiffness
- Headaches, memory problems, and difficulty concentrating
- Constipation or irritable bowel syndrome
Symptoms tend to come and go, and the amount of pain felt may vary at different times. Physical or emotional stress and changes in weather can influence your symptoms. No matter when your fibromyalgia symptoms occur, our doctor will help you identify your condition and help relieve your pain.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
On a physiological level, fibromyalgia may be linked to sensitive nerve cells, a chemical imbalance in the brain, hormone deficiency, or a musculoskeletal disorder. Fibromyalgia trigger points could also be connected to a certain event, like injuries, surgeries, or emotional trauma and stress.
