Getting Fibromyalgia Patients on Their Feet
Fibromyalgia is a perplexing disorder that produces symptoms that include fatigue and widespread pain in muscles, tendons, ligaments and multiple tender-to-touch spots on the body. Causation is unclear. While it was once thought to be purely psychological condition, health professionals are coming to understand that fibromyalgia involves the nervous system, owing to the notion that fibromyalgia patients have overly sensitive pain receptors in their brains. In addition, their brains contain high levels of neurotransmitters that conduct pain signals. Possible explanations for what makes their brains more sensitive to pain include spinal trauma. For some, chiropractic treatment brings pain relief by increasing range of joint motion and enabling fibromyalgia sufferers to engage in low impact exercise.
P.S Aquatic exercise in warm-water pools is highly recommended for fibromyalgia patients.
