Our Queens Chiropractor Explains Fibromyalgia

Medical science is still somewhat baffled as to why fibromyalgia seeks out some individuals and not others. The condition is more prevalent in women and in those who have some form of rheumatic disease; it also appears to have a genetic component, meaning that you may have inherited the disorder. Fibromyalgia cannot even be quantified as a medical condition on its own terms; rather, it is a syndrome, a constellation of symptoms that tend to occur together and plague the patient on an ongoing basis.
People with fibromyalgia may have a hypersensitivity to pain, with the central nervous system essentially overreacting to pain signals that might not trouble the general population. It may be that a previous injury or infection established a "pain memory" in certain nerve receptors, triggering hypersensitivity whenever those receptors are stimulated. Over time, imbalances in important neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and Substance P can lead to a state of chronic discomfort.
While pain management is critical for area residents struggling with fibromyalgia, you may in fact be in the market for more than just pain relief from our Queens chiropractor. Fibromyalgia causes a variety of issues that can disrupt your daily life. Symptoms include difficulty concentrating ("fibro fog"), chronic fatigue that may be related to chronic insomnia, depression, recurring headaches, and other problems. The most infamous symptom, however, is the chronic muscle pain that occurs when painful knots develop throughout all four quadrants of the body. Drugs may bring some pain relief, but they cannot address the nervous system dysfunction that lies at the heart of fibromyalgia. That's why our Queens chiropractor offers spinal adjustment and other natural therapies to help you achieve meaningful pain relief and ongoing pain management.
