Voice For Health – Curious Cases Of Nerves

Dr. Freedman“Fibromyalgia” is a chronic disorder of unknown origin. It is characterized by tenderness at specific points in the body, including the neck, shoulders, back, hips, and upper and lower extremities. Fibromyalgia sufferers also experience fatigue, headaches, sleep disturbances, and a variety of other symptoms. Many researchers now believe that repeated nerve stimulation causes the brains of people with fibromyalgia to change in such a way that there is an increase in levels of certain chemicals in the brain (neurotransmitters) that signal pain. In addition, the brain’s pain receptors seem to develop a “memory” of the pain and become more sensitive, which leads to overreaction to pain signals. Chiropractic treatment may help by normalizing nerve flow.

Patients have been turning to chiropractic care to treat the neck pain, back pain and leg cramps that often accompany fibromyalgia. Many have found that a few adjustments to the neck and spine can greatly relieve the chronic pain that they live with. To schedule an appointment with FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC, please call 617-472-4220. We accept most major insurance plans. Our office is located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. Some health experts believe that fibromyalgia has its origins in physical trauma or chronic postural alterations.
