Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by widespread, migrating, and often debilitating pain and fatigue which prevents patients from accomplishing everyday tasks, as well as functions and activities of daily living.

In addition to chronic pain, other symptoms include stiffness, especially in the morning, fatigue, sleep disturbance, migraine and tension headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, TMJ, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and intolerance to cold weather.

Drugs that are given include a variety of over-the-counter and prescription pain killers, tricyclic antidepressants, and tender point injections, each of which comes with an assortment of adverse reactions, and long-term damage to the body.

Fibromyalgia is a complicated condition that likely has more than one cause — although most researchers agree that the primary cause is a breakdown in the normal function of the central nervous system, which creates an abnormal perception of pain.

The primary cause of nerve interference is found in the spinal column. When the vertebrae become misaligned often as the result of trauma or injury, irritation and interference occur in the nerve pathways. Nerve dysfunction caused by spinal misalignments is called “vertebral subluxations” and are well- documented in scientific literature.

Chiropractic is a health care system that is founded on the premise that a proper functioning nervous system is essential to overall health and overall function of the human body.

Chiropractors have never claimed that they can “cure” Fibromyalgia and other health conditions, but research studies show that Chiropractic is effective in helping patients improve Fibromyalgia conditions.

Dr. Miller detects and corrects vertebral subluxations by physically adjusting the spine. This restores the nervous system to an optimum level of function, which maximizes the body’s inherent healing ability. Chiropractic adjustments restore normal nerve function; improve spinal biomechanics, range of motion, and posture — all of which are essential in improving Fibromyalgia.
