Fibromyalgia

The most dominating symptom of Fibromyalgia is chronic pain. In some case it will start in a single are like the neck and shoulders and then spread to other areas over time, but in most cases it affects the entire body. According to Webster’s Dictionary, Fibromyalgia is defined as:  A chronic disorder characterized by widespread pain, tenderness, and stiffness of muscles and associated connective tissue structures that is typically accompanied by fatigue, headache and sleep disturbances.

Do you or someone you know experience moderate to severe fatigue with reduced energy? Decreased stamina while exercising? Flu like exhaustion? At times, the exhaustion is worse than the pain.

Headaches, especially migraines, are especially common in fibromyalgia. Another common symptom is urinary urgency and/or frequency. Other symptoms include abdominal pain, alternating constipation and diarrhea, bloating, bladder spasms, irritability, and sensitivity to changes in temperature(resulting in changes in skin color).  

How long have you or someone you know been suffering with fibromyalgia? No matter what the answer is it is too long. Some patients suffer only minor symptoms while others are kept from participating in their daily lives, even simple daily tasks become impossible.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced overall. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    Neck Pain
  • "As I've now been under your care for over a year I look forward to each visit with you not only for the adjustment, but for the overall wellness feeling I know I will be walking out the door with."
