Can Chiropractic Help You With Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is linked to a very heightened sympathetic nervous system.

Regular Chiropractic care is a great way to reduce stress on your nervous system and help reduce the pain and swelling caused by fibromyalgia. 


As chiropractors our role is to adjust your nervous system via your spine through specific and effective chiropractic adjustments. 

By doing this regularly this restores proper alignment and movement in the spinal joints which helps increase joint mobility, enhances the speed of healing, improves recovery time, and helps your body manage the effects of fibromyalgia. 


Patients that have experienced negative symptoms from fibromyalgia have been seen to have the following benefits:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved range of movement 
  • Decreased inflammation 
  • Improved muscle tone and strength

If you are suffering from Fibromyalgia chiropractic care may be able to help you.
