Fibromyalgia Q & A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a common but painful disorder that causes a variety of symptoms for the patient. This disorder is often diagnosed after all other possible causes of the patient’s symptoms have been excluded by medical professionals.

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia include fatigue, widespread pain, trouble concentrating, and depression. Some patients may also experience other symptoms, such as pain in the abdomen and restless leg syndrome.

What causes fibromyalgia?

Doctors don’t know the exact cause of fibromyalgia. However, most researchers believe that this disorder occurs because of a combination of genetics and environmental factors. Certain illnesses have been linked to an increased risk of fibromyalgia. In addition, many people who develop this condition have a history of physical or emotional trauma.

How does Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine treat fibromyalgia?

Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine approaches the treatment of fibromyalgia differently than traditional medicine. The goal of treatment at this facility isn’t only to alleviate the patient’s symptoms, but also to improve the patient’s overall strength and wellness. Some of the treatment options Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine offers to patients with fibromyalgia include:

  • Soft tissue massage – Patients with fibromyalgia often experience muscle tension. Soft tissue massage can alleviate this tension, which may improve the patient’s symptoms.
  • Trigger point injections – Trigger point injections administer a specific medication into points on the patient’s body that are associated with pain.
  • Corrective exercises – Corrective exercises help patients improve their flexibility, strength, and range of motion. Corrective exercises can also help patients learn to correct problems with posture or the way they move.
  • Spinal manipulation – The purpose of spinal manipulation is to address issues with the alignment of the vertebrae.
How effective is treatment for fibromyalgia?

Most patients with fibromyalgia continue to experience symptoms of the disorder throughout their lives. At this time, doctors haven’t found a cure for this condition. However, treatment at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine can relieve some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and help patients live healthier, fuller lives. While some patients may notice an improvement in their symptoms immediately after beginning treatment, others may need to attend treatment sessions several times before they experience relief. Most patients will continue to improve over time.
