Effective treatment for fibromyalgia


There are many causes of fibromyalgia

The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, however research suggests it can be triggered by stressful events or linked to other conditions like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or diabetes. In many cases, the symptoms of fibromyalgia can be further worsened by environmental factors such as extreme temperatures, pollutants in the air and water, sleep deprivation, poor diet and lack of exercise. Psychological factors can cause more fatigue and an increase in pain symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and emotional stress. It is important to recognize these risk factors and to adjust lifestyle accordingly in order to prevent or lessen the impact of fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by chronic widespread body pain, fatigue, and heightened sensitivity to touch. It is often accompanied by other symptoms including impaired cognition, sleep disturbances, headaches and irritable bowel syndrome. Fibromyalgia has no known cause but it is believed the origins of this disorder stem from the central nervous system and its response to stress and mood changes. Diagnosis may include an evaluation of health history or physical exam with tender points which are areas on the body that are usually painful when pressed. Treatment may involve lifestyle changes like exercise, relaxation training, medication and cognitive behavior therapy.

Fibromyalgia is a medical condition that affects the musculoskeletal system and can lead to widespread pain. This syndrome is characterized by chronic pain throughout the body and can also be accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbances, mood changes, and cognitive difficulties. Symptoms of fibromyalgia include tenderness in specific areas, such as the neck and back; headache; joint stiffness; muscle pains or spasms that may travel around various parts of the body; intense pain that may be triggered by certain motions ; persistent fatigue regardless of activity or rest ; poor sleep quality; difficulty concentrating or remembering things (“fibro fog”); anxiety; depression; numbness or tingling in the hands and feet; abdominal cramps and bloating. If you think you may have symptoms of fibromyalgia, it’s important to consult your healthcare provider and discuss a treatment plan.

Treatment for fibromyalgia typically involves a multi-pronged approach to address both the physical and psychological symptoms associated with the condition. Approaches often include chiropractic care, physiotherapy, massage therapy, behavioral therapy, regular exercise, restful sleep, stress reduction techniques and medications. chiropractor visits may focus on spine alignment and balance correction to reduce pain, while physiotherapy sessions may involve exercises and stretches designed to tone weakened muscles and improve joint mobility. Massage therapy helps relax tense muscles so they can be worked more effectively during exercise or chiropractic visits.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
