Fibromyalgia Treatment Options from Our Chiropractor in San Antonio, TX
Here at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness, your pain is always our problem, and we work hard to find the solution. Our San Antonio chiropractor, Dr. Donald Phillips, is passionate about helping Texans find safe and effective pain management methods, and he accomplishes his mission by taking the time to truly understand your symptoms first. If your symptoms include chronic muscle pain and fatigue, you may have a condition called fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia, like arthritis, is a condition of the joints and soft tissues. Though it doesn't cause visible damage to your joints, it does cause chronic and sometimes severe pain that can make your daily routine impossible. Chiropractic care is designed to approach your body as a whole system of parts that work together, rather than isolating symptoms to one specific location and ignoring the rest. Because fibromyalgia is not isolated to one part of your body, our chiropractic approach is especially useful for treating the many related (or unrelated) side effects of this chronic condition.
We offer the following fibromyalgia treatment options at our chiropractic, nutrition and wellness center in San Antonio, TX. Learn more about how these treatments target your symptoms and reduce their chances of recurring.
Nutrition Care for Fibromyalgia
Stress, toxins, and lack of proper nutrients can cause pain in people without any conditions or injuries. When you live with fibromyalgia, it's especially important to pay attention to what goes into your body. Fortunately, our San Antonio chiropractor is also a nutritionist who knows how different foods affect your nerves, muscles, and bones. He will work with you to personalize a nutritional plan that minimizes your pain and reduces your future risks.
Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia
Though fibromyalgia doesn't cause inflammation like other rheumatic conditions, it often does lead to neck pain, back pain, leg pain, and muscle cramps or tightness. Chiropractic adjustments include manual and machine-assisted techniques for restoring alignment and reducing tension in the spine, and Dr. Phillips uses a variety of different manipulation techniques to treat fibromyalgia. He will target your pain at the source after asking in-depth questions about your symptoms.
Spinal Decompression for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia may also cause your spine's connective tissues to compress, causing widespread and severe pain throughout your back and neck. This tissue is made up of three layers, and it's responsible for protecting and covering your central nervous system, so it's important to treat your upper spine's compression right away. We offer a non-surgical option called spinal decompression, which stimulates your spinal nerves and reduces compression of the connective tissue.
Cold Laser Therapy for Fibromyalgia
This innovative treatment option involves the use of low level laser lights, or cold lasers, to stimulate individual cells and encourage regrowth. At our San Antonio chiropractic clinic, we use cold laser therapy to reduce spasms, restore mobility, and speed up the healing process after fibromyalgia has damaged or injured your muscle tissue.
When you have fibromyalgia, pain management isn't the only solution you need. Our San Antonio chiropractor knows how important it is to regain your strength and mobility after living with chronic pain. Our chiropractic team will take your lifestyle and career into account as we help you make adjustments to reduce your pain and restore your independence. For example, you may adjust your workplace with more ergonomic angles that reduce inflammation, or try a series of simple exercises to keep muscles moving and combat chronic pain.
