Fibromyalgia Treatment in Shrewsbury, Freehold, Wall, & Lacey NJ

Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation eliminates the stress of fibromyalgia treatment in Shrewsbury, Freehold, Wall, & Lacey NJ by offering compassionate medical care, acupuncture, physical therapy, and chiropractic in one location.

Most patients with fibromyalgia are familiar with the frustration that often accompanies diagnosing, treating, and living with the disorder. This is partially because there is no known medical cause of fibromyalgia, nor is there any sort of conclusive diagnostic test to prove that the widespread pain, fatigue, and emotional symptoms of fibromyalgia are, in fact, the symptoms of a real medical condition.

Many fibromyalgia patients find that acupuncture is effective in dealing with many of the symptoms of the disorder. Physical therapy and chiropractic care are also extremely helpful modalities in the treatment of fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, between visiting a medical doctor and seeing a number of other practitioners, the process of seeking treatment can often be as exhausting and confusing as the disease itself. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation we work together to give you a specific treatment plan on how to treat your fibromyalgia at our Shrewsbury, Freehold, Wall, & Lacey NJ office.

Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation has a new solution for fibromyalgia patients. Our facility incorporates the best in medical care, acupuncture, physical therapy, and chiropractic in one location. Our medical center is also aware of the emotional ramifications of fibromyalgia and is prepared to handle both the physical and mental aspects of the condition.

Medical Care for Fibromyalgia Sufferers

It’s important for fibromyalgia sufferers to seek out physicians with a complete understanding of the neurological and musculoskeletal systems of the body. Doctors treating Fibromyalgia must also have insight into the emotional ramifications of the disease. For these reasons, a specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Physiatrist) is often the physician of choice.

Physiatrists provide non-surgical treatments to help patients reduce pain and restore functioning lost due to fibromyalgia. Physiatrists treat the whole person; they address physical, emotional, and social needs during the rehabilitation and pain management process. At our Shrewsbury, Freehold, Wall, & Lacey NJ offices, our Medical Director works as the head of a team of practitioners; he is the architect of each patient’s individual treatment plan. A strategy for fibromyalgia patients may include acupuncture, physical therapy, and/or chiropractic care.

In some cases, a Physiatrist may incorporate Trigger Point Injections as part of the pain management process. Trigger Point Injections are injections of a local anesthetic medication and/or cortisone into trigger points, areas of intense muscle spasm that are often experienced by fibromyalgia patients.

Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia

The acupuncture at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is based on ancient Chinese medical practices. It works by restoring the body’s natural balance to release blocked energy and stimulate the body to heal itself.

Both Chinese and Western studies have proven that the insertion of needles at specific points on the body can help with the release of certain chemical neurotransmitters. The human body was designed to release these neurotransmitters naturally. Endorphins, for example, enhance the immune system and alleviate pain.

Fibromyalgia and Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an important component in the treatment process for fibromyalgia; it can help patients improve functioning and mobility, prevent further deterioration, and relieve pain. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, our licensed physical therapists work in conjunction with our Medical Director to create customized physical therapy programs for fibromyalgia patients.

Therapeutic exercise is a drug-free method for reducing the pain and inflammation that afflict fibromyalgia patients. Other physical therapy modalities for fibromyalgia may include:

• Ice and Heat Therapies
• Deep Tissue massage
• Ultrasound
• Electrotherapy
• Low Level Laser Therapy

Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia

When the spine is not properly aligned, the body is left vulnerable to a number of illnesses, including fibromyalgia. Chiropractic care seeks to resolve painful conditions by correcting the misalignments (also known as subluxations) in the spine in order to ensure optimal health.

In addition to practicing traditional chiropractic care, Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation incorporates Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP). CBP is based on concrete scientific findings, and is focused on achieving functional outcomes by ensuring total spinal alignment and health.
