Seattle Chiropractor: Fibromyalgia Treatment in Seattle

Advanced chiropractic care has now become the leading protocol for fibromyalgia treatment

Fibromyalgia Treatment in SeattleSeattle, WA — Are you one of the many Seattle residents living with the constant pain and fatigue of fibromyalgia? Doctors still don’t know what causes fibromyalgia, although the latest research indicates that it is a result of abnormal sensory processing in the central nervous system, according to the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA).

The NFA estimates that fibromyalgia affects 10 million Americans, predominately women. A variety of maladies can trigger the disorder, including physical injuries, emotional trauma or viral infections such as Epstein-Barr. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, tenderness throughout the body, fatigue and sleep problems. Treatment typically involves a combination of medications, exercise, lifestyle changes and stress management. There is no cure; treatment focuses on managing the symptoms as much as possible.

Rheumatologist Dr. Frederick Wolfe conducted a study of 81 fibromyalgia patients in 1985. In that study, published in the American Journal of Medicine, patients rated chiropractic among the most effective measures for relieving their pain.

Another study, published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics involved 15 members of a regional fibromyalgia association who received chiropractic treatment. The study reported that 30 treatments reduced the intensity of participants’ pain, sleep disturbance and fatigue.

Dr. Justin Favreau of Stability Health Center in Seattle is among a notable few that can successfully treat patients who are suffering from this disorder through advanced chiropractic care, without the need for medication.

“One common symptom fibromyalgia patients exhibit is chronic neck or back pain caused by spinal misalignment” explains Dr. Favreau. “Spinal misalignments exert pressure on the delicate nerves flowing from the brain to the rest of the body. ‘Nerve interference’ prevents vital nerve energy from reaching the limbs and organs, which leads to dysfunction, pain and disease.”

Chiropractors such as Seattle’s Dr Justin Favreau specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) are able to assist patients suffering from fibromyalgia by realigning the spine back to health, and in turn taking pressure off these delicate nerves that maintain the health and function of the entire body.

CBP or Chiropractic BioPhysics is the most researched, published, scientific, and results-oriented corrective chiropractic technique. Dr. Favreau is among only a handful of chiropractors in the Seattle area who is certified in CBP, and who has successfully treated Fibromyalgia in hundreds of patients.
