Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, often accompanied by sleep disturbances, fatigue, and mood fluctuations. It can significantly impact a person’s lifestyle and hinder their ability to perform everyday activities. This condition may develop following an infection, physical trauma, or emotionally stressful event. Individuals with fibromyalgia often experience fatigue and cognitive difficulties, leading to challenges in work, school, and home life due to chronic pain.
At The Wellness Center, Dr. Gabriel provides effective fibromyalgia treatment options to alleviate chronic pain and improve overall well-being. Our approach may involve chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage therapy, targeting the pain and promoting relief. Additionally, patients may benefit from pain management plans that incorporate anti-inflammatory diet modifications, prescribed by their regular doctors.
To determine if fibromyalgia is the underlying cause of pain, it is essential to undergo a physical examination by a qualified healthcare professional. During the examination, the doctor will assess 18 specific trigger points in the body, applying pressure to determine pain severity and potential radiation to other areas. A diagnosis is typically made if a person experiences pain in at least 11 of the 18 trigger points.
