How Your Spinal Health Affects Fibromyalgia

Do your fibromyalgia flare-ups interfere with the activities you enjoy? Does fatigue affect your ability to finish your daily routine? Here are some lifestyle changes that can help ease some of the aches and pains of an episode.

  1. Gentle aerobic exercise – walking, swimming, elliptical
  2. Slow, gentle stretching
  3. Getting adequate sleep
  4. Reducing stress
  5. Avoiding cold temperatures – try to stay warm as often as possible

While these are all great suggestions to improve fibromyalgia pain, they do not address a potential underlying cause of the condition. Here at Upper Cervical Health Centers of Los Angeles and Carson, we want to see you fully enjoy your life without having to deal with the frequent aches and pains of fibromyalgia.

When the top bone in your neck (atlas) misaligns, it creates pressure in your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is responsible for sending signals to and from your brain. When there is pressure on your spinal cord, the signals are distorted. This can potentially lead to chronic pain, fatigue, and other fibromyalgia symptoms.

I am trained in the Blair Technique, a specific chiropractic approach that detects and corrects atlas misalignments. Through specific realignment of the atlas, there is reduced pressure on the spinal cord. This allows for proper signals to be sent to and from the brain. This may lead to a reduction in fibromyalgia symptoms. 

Soriano et al. described a case of a 31-year-old fibromyalgia patient who saw a decrease in her symptoms within 2 months of receiving atlas care. After 5 atlas corrections over the course of 18 months, the patient reported no longer needing medications to manage symptoms. (2) 

If you are interested in more information about Blair Technique and fibromyalgia, call the Upper Cervical Health Center of Carson at (310) 324-6172 or Upper Cervical Health Center of Los Angeles at (213) 399-7772. Many people are looking for a fibromyalgia cure in Los Angeles.  We have found that a multi-pronged approach to addressing fibromyalgia gives the best results.
