Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by pervasive pain above and below the waist and on both sides of the body, as well as in the skull, spine, rib cage, and the bones in the throat and ears. Diagnosis is predicated on the experience of tenderness or pain in 11 to 18 recognized “tenderness points”. Fibromyalgia is not only very difficult to diagnose, but it is also very challenging to treat. However, recent research involving patients suffering from severe fibromyalgia shows that chiropractic treatment involving cervical adjustments led to significant improvements of a number of symptoms by 15% or more when added to other fibromyalgia treatment regimens. Researchers speculate that chiropractic adjustments may get at the root of the problem.
