Fibromyalgia Treatment with Eastside Medical Group in Shaker Heights
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes pain and tenderness to various areas of the body.
Currently, the disease affects approximately 5 million Americans. In addition to severe pain throughout the body, fibromyalgia can also cause symptoms such as headaches, memory loss, irritable bowel syndrome and sleep disturbances.
Many times, a concoction of drugs is prescribed in order to battle the disorder. Some of these drugs include prednisone steroids, anti-depressants, sleep aids and muscle relaxants. Sadly, these drugs can lead to other problems within the body and often do not yield much relief to the patient.
A chiropractic approach is a drug-free solution that focuses more on lifestyle changes than medicine.
Currently, chiropractic care is ranked as one of the top therapeutic methods that offer relief for fibromyalgia patients. Our staff believes that each patient is different and we create personalized plans that focus not only on spinal adjustments but on diet, electrical therapies, and supplements.
