These points may congregate around the neck, chest, elbows, knees, shoulders, and hips.

Others may also have one or more of the following symptoms:

Fatigue
Sleep disorders
Cognitive or memory impairment
Dizziness or lightheadedness
Chronic headaches

Muscle pain after exertion

Natural Treatment Options for Fibromyalgia

Are you looking for a natural treatment for fibromyalgia pain? The nervous system runs through your spinal column, carrying information from the brain to the rest of the body, and vice versa. So, it makes sense that a chiropractor specializing in the spine and back can also help with this condition.

Our chiropractor provides non-invasive care to help manage your fibromyalgia symptoms. Our chiropractic care is drug-free and can be used to improve your range of motion to help your body start to heal itself naturally.

Misaligned or restricted vertebrae press on the nerves and cause the multi-point pain associated with fibromyalgia. To relieve the pain, Dr. Fisher uses gentle pressure to adjust your spine. In some cases, low- or high-velocity thrusts and stretching can realign the vertebrae.

Treatment Alternatives in Bolingbrook

Traditional medical treatment for fibromyalgia includes sleeping medication, anti-inflammatory agents, and muscle relaxers. These drugs don’t resolve the underlying issue. For a long-term solution, see our chiropractor. Chiropractic care in Bolingbrook can help you find relief from fibromyalgia. Other treatment approaches may include massage therapy, ultrasound therapy, and electrical stimulation.
