Pain is the most prominent symptom of Fibromyalgia. It usually affects the entire body, although it may start in one area, such as the neck and shoulders, and spread to other areas over a period of time.
Fibromyalgia is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue. The name, Fibromyalgia, means pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the ligaments and tendons).
You (or someone you know) may be experiencing moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion that results from the flu or lack of sleep. Sometimes the fatigue is more of a problem than the pain. Headaches, especially tension and migraine headaches, are common in Fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating, alternating constipation, bladder spasms, and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Your skin and blood circulation can be sensitive to temperature changes, resulting in temporary changes in skin color.
Have you suffered with for a few months, a few years, or too many years to mention?
Some may suffer only minor symptoms, while others feel the debilitating affects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life. Even simple, daily activities become almost impossible.
Throughout my years in practice I have tried the full range of therapies and treatments available to me, with minimal improvement. I knew there had to be more, a method of treatment that could help them (and you!). I began searching to find the answer….and then….I found it!
Brain Based Therapy and BioMedical Nutrition
I found out about this breakthrough therapy while attending functional neurology courses with the Carrick Institute and functional medicine courses through Functional Medicine University and Apex. This additional education and many long conversations with colleagues laid the groundwork for Brain Based Therapy and BioMedical Nutrition.
Going beyond basic chiropractic techniques, I feel these additional approaches allow me to help fibromyalgia patients to a greater degree.
Is It Really That Simple?
Yes, for most people the answer is really that simple: Brain-Based Therapy and BioMedical Nutrition.
How Does This Work?
You are most likely starting to wonder “What is the treatment going to be like?”. I can tell you from personal experience and from watching patients and staff participate in the treatments– they are beneficial and enjoyable!
Treatments can include:
- gentle ‘neurologically specific’ adjustments
- simple exercises
- eye exercises
- and other activities.
These techniques coupled with a full neurological and nutritional workup have enabled us to help our patients with their chronic symptoms no matter how long they have been experiencing them.
Imagine how different your life would be if you were free from the burdens that your fibromyalgia causes you.
