Fibromyalgia is one of the many conditions we treat here at Hansen Chiropractic in West Babylon, New York. It is a relatively common yet poorly understood condition that affects people of all ages, especially women. West Babylon chiropractor, Dr. Chris Hansen, brings his years of professional experience and advanced chiropractic skills to help people living with fibromyalgia get the relief they're looking for--without a reliance on drugs and invasive procedures.
Fibromyalgia, also known as fibrositis, is a chronic pain condition. The cause or causes are not fully understood by the medical community. One theory is that nervous system starts sending heightened pain signals throughout the body as if the volume was turned up.
It is believed that there is a genetic component to fibromyalgia (that is, a person may be more likely to have this condition if a member of their family has it, too). Certain physiological or environmental factors that may trigger symptoms have also been identified, including hormonal changes, sudden changes of weather, high levels of stress, or even excessive physical exertion.
The classic symptoms of fibromyalgia include pain that is widespread throughout the body and an overwhelming sense of fatigue. A person with fibromyalgia may also have localized tenderness in specific areas, including the neck, shoulders, elbows, and knees.
Additional symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
Conventional treatment of fibromyalgia includes medication and psychotherapy. While both can be helpful, West Babylon chiropractor, Dr. Hansen, believes that chiropractic care, physical therapy, and other natural pain management solutions should be considered first in line in the treatment and management of fibromyalgia symptoms.
Specifically, here are a few ways that the services we offer at Hansen Chiropractic can help someone with living with this frustrating condition:

I have to have an adjustment before I go into the ring. I do believe in chiropractic. I found that going to a chiropractor three times a week helps my performance. The majority of boxers go to get that edge.
