Monmouth County Pain Management for Fibromyalgia

Let’s face it, Fibromyalgia is one of those conditions that has been really difficult for patients to fight. Learning more about Fibromyalgia is going to be the key in helping our patients find the solutions they need to live without pain. I know that many Fibromyalgia sufferers have a lot of frustration—and rightly so—regarding the typical treatment for this condition, most of which involves drug therapy.

A recent study* is showing that sleep problems are associated with an increased likelihood that women (particularly women in middle age or older) may suffer from Fibromyalgia at some point. For women over 45 who have always had sleep issues, the risk of Fibromyalgia jumps five-fold from that of the general population. Younger women with the same sleep problems were three times more likely to have Fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia patients who visit our Red Bank rehabilitation office will find something different than what they’re used to. We offer integrated, comprehensive programs of care that include medical pain management alongside the following options:

First, let’s address the fact that both chiropractic care and acupuncture can help those of you living with sleep disturbances, whether or not you also have fibromyalgia or any other type of pain.

Red Bank Corticosteroid Injections for Fibromyalgia

Trigger point injections use an injection of long-lasting steroid in trigger points. The goal of this type of intervention is relieve the myofascial pain—the muscle pain—that plagues those of you with Fibromyalgia. It does so by calming inflammation and relaxing the trigger point itself. This can help to manage the pain of the trigger point as well as referred pain. For some Fibromyalgia patients, a local anesthetic may be used alongside the steroid medication in order to numb and relax the muscles and provide immediate relief.

Chiropractic and Fibromyalgia

Our Monmouth County Chiropractors for Fibromyalgia have had fantastic results with Fibromyalgia patients because this condition is closely linked to misalignments in the spine. Let me explain:

The central nervous system is responsible for coordinating all of the activities in your body. The main components of the central nervous system include the brain and the spinal cord. These are protected by the musculoskeletal system—you brain is safeguarded by your skull while the spinal cord is protected by your vertebrae (the bones of the spine).

A number of factors can affect the spine, including trauma from athletic activity or a car accident. Poor posture over time can also wreak havoc on the spine. For some patients, a long-forgotten injury, even one incurred during childhood, can produce lifelong disastrous health consequences. Have you ever noticed that Fibromyalgia sufferers also tend to live with other conditions (often Irritable Bowel Syndrome)? Is this happening to you? If so, it’s clear that nervous system interference is a major issue in poor health.
