fibromyalgiaIf you’ve received a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, you are already aware of the physical and psychological 
distress it can cause.  Fibromyalgia is a disorder of unknown origins; the cause of its development remains a mystery in the medical community at large.   Widespread bodily pain, abnormal pain processing, extreme fatigue, and sleep disturbances are only a few of the symptoms experienced by the over 5 million adults who live with it.1

The symptoms of Fibromyalgia can begin following a significant event, such as surgery, infection, psychological stress, or a physical trauma.  In other cases, the symptoms may begin gradually and worsen over time with seemingly no triggering event.While there is no known cause, researchers believe that pain sensations in Fibromyalgia suffers are amplified due to changes in the way the brain processes these pain signals.   

In addition to there being no known cause, there is also no known cure.  Traditional treatments using medications are designed to merely control the symptoms at best.  Other methods, including relaxation techniques, meditation, and exercise may help for some people.

Fortunately for Fibromyalgia patients in the Chattanooga area, there is another natural option that has been shown to be highly effective.  Upper cervical chiropractors Drs. Christi and Todd Osborne are specially trained to detect misalignments in the area of the spine that protects the brainstem, the C1 and C2 vertebrae.  Since these two unique bones protect an area so vital to brain and nervous system function, a misalignment, or subluxation, can create an obstruction to the normal communication between the brain and body via the nervous system.  Research has shown that even people who have suffered with Fibromyalgia for years, even decades, can find relief and great improvements of quality of life under upper cervical specific chiropractic care.3-5
