Fibromyalgia, Myth vs. Truth

Fibromyalgia is a debilitating affliction that affects many in the world.  It is an autoimmune disease wherein the body’s own immune system attacks the muscle fibers of the body.  It can cause pain, weakness and fatigue.

Not long ago, fibromyalgia was considered by many health practitioners (and still is to this day) to be a condition of “the head”.  Luckily, new research has shown that those who suffer from fibromyalgia also suffer from polyneuropathy (fancy word for nerve damage).  

This research suggests that not only is fibromyalgia a problem of muscle, but of nerve as well.  

Chiropractors are the gatekeepers of the nervous system and help millions of people each year.  If you or someone you know is suffering from fibromyalgia, go see a chiropractor.  As the chiropractor heals up the nervous system, the body will begin to function as it should, making you more healthy and vibrant than ever before!

Fibromyalgia is not of the mind, it is an actual condition that can be managed if the proper steps are taken.  Start taking those proper steps today, make an appointment with a chiropractor!
