Many patients are unaware that the best Charlotte chiropractors treat fibromyalgia. Once considered to be an enigmatic disease, fibromyalgia is a disorder that can best be described as widespread pain and tenderness throughout the joints, muscles, and other soft tissues of the body. In addition to the constant aching, when pressure is applied to tender points on the body, the pain intensifies. The tender point areas of the body commonly include:
- back, and head
Studies have revealed that the long term pain of fibromyalgia can be a secondary cause of numerous other health conditions such as headaches, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and irritable bowel syndrome.
