Fibromyalgia

Manager symptoms with Fairmont Chiropractor Dr. Roger Kritzer

Women are more likely to experience fibromyalgia.
Women in Fairmont are more often affected by fibromyalgia than men.

Eight women to every two men are affected by fibromyalgia. So, although men can suffer from it, women are more likely to have an issue. It's usually diagnosed as having a widespread pain index of seven or greater that lasts at least three months when no other health problem is evident. Symptoms might include disruptive sleep, fatigue, headaches, memory impairment, lightheadedness, jaw pain, muscle pain, irritable bowels, menstrual cramping, numbness, tingling and skin sensitivity. Since many of these symptoms are connected to other health issues, like anemia or Lyme disease, it's always best to seek out medical treatment to rule out a serious health risk.

Fibromyalgia Treatment

Chiropractic care can help you when it comes to joint and muscle pain brought on by fibromyalgia. While a doctor can prescribe medications, there are more holistic approaches. They can include taking magnesium, malic acid or vitamin B. Watching caffeine intake in the late afternoon can also help with sleep disturbances. Exercise and muscle strengthening can also aid patients. When you combine these therapies with seeing a chiropractor you increase the chances of feeling better. This is where Marion Chiropractic Center can help you. I'm Dr. Roger Kritzer and if you believe you may be suffering from fibromyalgia contact me to discuss possible therapies you can start today.
