When any joint has a restricted Erase My Back Pain movement, it will eventually begin to feel "stiff" and "achy". If this situation is left untreated, the joints can become quite painful. When any patient, with fibromyalgia or not, is experiencing pain in a joint, the body will try to protect that area by even further tightening the neighboring muscles. You can now see how the muscle spasm from fibromyalgia causes joint stiffness, which leads to joint pain, which leads to more muscle spasm, which leads to further joint stiffness, which leads to even more joint pain. This cycle propagates itself until you cannot sleep at night, you feel fatigued, and any amount of activity causes pain.

In terms of conservative or natural treatment, this is where the chiropractor and massage therapist come in. The chiropractor is well trained to identify what joints are being affected and how to restore their movement. This will allow the joints to function in a healthier state and become less painful. The chiropractic treatment is most successful when in conjunction with massage therapy. Without addressing the muscle spasm at the same time, the joints will just become stiff and sore again.

As I mentioned earlier, it is unreasonable for anyone to expect even a team of health care practitioners to decrease his or her fibromyalgia symptoms without the patient doing their part. Because people with this syndrome find it painful to move, they often limit their physical activity. Their muscles become weak and tight from inactivity and the tendons, ligaments, and cartilage are more prone to injury. Despite the extra pain that it may cause, patients should try to get even a few minutes of exercise per day. The key is to start gradually and do only low impact, higher repetition exercises.

If you were expecting to find out that there was a simple and quick treatment for fibromyalgia, I am sorry to say that it doesn't exist. There are many potential causes of the symptoms and there is no one chiropractic doctor, medical doctor, or massage therapist that can do it all for you. It is generally a team approach that requires you to do your part as well.
