Fibromyalgia is a chronic health condition associated with widespread, all-over musculoskeletal pain and fatigue. If you have fibromyalgia, you may be more sensitive to pain due to abnormalities in your ability to process pain perception. Holistic treatments at Paladin Chiropractic can offer you relief.

Complications associated with fibromyalgia can include sleeping problems, inability to complete normal everyday tasks, depression, and anxiety.
To diagnose fibromyalgia, your chiropractor reviews your medical history and symptoms. They may also complete a physical exam and use blood tests to rule out other medical problems associated with pain or fatigue, such as thyroid disorders.
Your personalized fibromyalgia treatment plan might include:
Your chiropractor uses the Activator Method® and other advanced chiropractic techniques to realign your spine, relieve nerve pressure, and alleviate chronic pain while you lie down and relax. They also offer massage to reduce muscle tension and stress.
IASTM, or the Graston Technique®, is a procedure in which your doctor uses special instruments to apply pressure to tense muscles for pain relief.
During electrical stimulation your chiropractor uses electrical impulses to relieve pain associated with tight, tense muscles.
Diathermy treatment heats deep tissue layers to loosen muscles, stimulate blood flow, and relieve widespread pain naturally.
Cold laser therapy uses cold technology to stimulate healing, reduce inflammation, and diminish pain in targeted areas.
During nutrition response testing your chiropractor tests for nutritional deficiencies, immune problems, and food intolerances using neurological reflex points.
Losing weight and eating a nutritious diet can reduce inflammation and diminish all-over pain associated with fibromyalgia. Your Paladin Chiropractic specialist offers quality dietary supplements from reputable companies like Standard Process®, NutriWest®, Biotics®, Pure Encapsulations®, and Anabolic Laboratories.
