A chronic heightened & widespread pain, joint stiffness, sleep disturbance, fatigue, poor concentration & depression are just some of the common experiences people with fibromyalgia suffer with on a daily basis. This condition leaves individuals feeling hopeless & helpless.
Medications and talk therapy are generally the treatments of choice. Nevertheless, many find these expensive interventions to be only slightly to moderately beneficial when dealing with the debilitating symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.
Not surprisingly, according to a recent study, individuals with history of a past neck injury are at a higher risk of developing fibromyalgia.1
At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Rochester, we specialize in correcting dysfunction at the top of the neck, known as an Atlas Subluxation Complex (ASC). Once the ASC is corrected, many patients find that their symptoms reduce significantly. We use gentle and precise nervous system testing to determine if we can help, so you can begin living the life you deserve!
