Hopkins Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia
Every year millions of chronic pain sufferers receive medical care, for the condition know as fibromyalgia.
The current model of care for a fibromyalgia sufferer has been medications that only change the way our brain perceives pain but they do not actually fix the cause of the pain. If you or a loved one suffers from fibromyalgia this may be the help you have been looking for.
So what causes fibromyalgia and what can be done about it?
The term literally means pain in muscles and the soft tissues surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
The cause is a high firing upper brain stem know as the mesencaphalon. When the upper brain stem over fires our sympathetic/ parasympathictc system becomes out of balance.
A dominance of our sympathetic system occurs and can lead to many problems some of which include:
pain all over
lack of sleep
alternating diarrhea and constipation
