Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder with little known about its root cause and no verified cure. It ravages its sufferers with widespread sensitivity and sometimes debilitating pain across the entire body. It is typically also accompanied by fatigue and sleep disturbances, along with mood inconsistencies and cognitive problems. Fibromyalgia often co-exists with various other diseases and ailments, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), migraines, temporomandibular joint problems (TMJ), and more.
Depending on who you talk to, you’ll get a variety of theories about the cause of fibromyalgia, some citing psychological aspects while others name trauma or postural issues as the root cause. What is clear is that fibromyalgia deals with pain and sensitivity, which is based on nerves and neurons throughout the body. It only makes sense that since fibromyalgia affects our nerves, a doctor specializing in nerves and the nervous system should be able to help, such as Dr. Bolar of Vital Life Chiropractic in Lithia Springs, GA.

Thankfully, chiropractors have been studying how chiropractic adjustments affect fibromyalgia patients, and the results are promising!
