Fibromyalgia

Almost 10 million people in the US suffer from fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition. It largely affects women, who comprise some 75-90% of all cases. Around 0.5% of all adult men in the US are also battling this condition. Fibromyalgia is characterized by musculoskeletal pain, mood issues, and fatigue. Some patients diagnosed with the illness also report instances of memory loss and sleep deprivation. Experts theorize that the condition affects how the brain processes pain signals by amplifying them and making the body believe that it is experiencing pain on levels that are higher than reality. This illness is normally treated with drugs such as pain killers, but such a treatment approach can be temporary.

At Vito Chiropractic Center, we do things the natural way. We only employ proven chiropractic techniques when treating patients with fibromyalgia. For over 25 years, we have seen some pretty serious cases of fibromyalgia. With the help of our chiropractic team lead by award-winning chiropractor Dr. Emanuel Vito, we have helped countless Pennsylvania patients enjoy long-lasting relief from the pains caused by such a debilitating condition.

Read on to find out more about fibromyalgia and how our treatment differs from the others.

Effective Fibromyalgia Treatment

The usual fibromyalgia treatments involve patients taking antidepressants, pain relievers, and anti-seizure drugs. However, their limitations lie in the fact that the effects of such drugs are not long-lasting. This means that patients would have to take their medicines frequently, without any assurance of long-term pain relief.

Loss of sleep, fatigue, and musculoskeletal pains are just some of the symptoms that may persist when treatment solely rely on prescription drugs. Additionally, it could be counterproductive when dependence developed, and the usual level of pain actually worsens over time. Because of these factors, we believe that the best approach to treating fibromyalgia is through sound chiropractic techniques. We employ a wide range of chiropractic relief, corrective, and maintenance care procedures to ensure that patients enjoy holistic treatments whose effects are long-lasting.

We don’t stop treating patients when the pain has already subsided; in fact, our treatment sessions extend for a few more months after the corrective phase. This is to ensure that our patients are given chiropractic maintenance care that would not negate all the treatments previously done to them. We’ve done such procedures many times before, so we’re pretty confident that they work.

Why Choose Our Chiropractic Treatment?

Our drug-free chiropractic treatment for fibromyalgia works like magic because we don’t leave the work to prescription medications. Instead, we do things the hands-on way, literally. By providing trigger point massages, muscle work, traditional chiropractic adjustment, and other techniques, our personnel provides patients relief from punishing pain. These are just some of the compelling reasons why there is an increasing number of patients who are shifting from traditional drug-intensive treatments to chiropractic care. We can assure patients that our chiropractic treatments can give results that are not temporary, and their symptoms won’t get worse as they move on with the phases of treatment.
