How to Escape the Prison of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue

Renowned author Laura Hillenbrand said these words in an interview for the New York Times in 2011:

 "I have to spend so much time being vigilant on my body and worrying about my body and suffering. So much of my own autobiography would be about my health, and I don’t know if I want to spend my professional life thinking about that. I write to escape my circumstances."

Hillenbrand has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (also called CFS/FMS), like the thousands who seek fibromyalgia relief in Redwood City. Like the author, many suffering people long for some respite from the pain and seemingly unending feeling of tiredness.

Perhaps drawing from her own painful experience, Hillebrand often wrote about courageous characters who endured so much suffering. 

Is there still hope for Hillebrand and others like her?

What is Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

When people visit an upper cervical chiropractic office for fibromyalgia relief in Redwood City, the first questions they ask are:

“What is fibromyalgia? What is CFS?”

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that makes a person experience pain in both the bones and muscles. The disorder also has other symptoms such as:

  • difficulty in sleeping 
  • fatigue 
  • mood swings 
  • loss of memory

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS is a disorder that makes a person suffer extreme tiredness for many months.  Persons with CFS also experience these symptoms:

  • fatigue
  • sore throat
  • headache
  • lymph node enlargement
  • difficulty in maintaining focus or concentration
  • memory problems
  • dizziness
  • tiredness that lingers even after waking up from sleep

Alternative Approach to Relieve Fibromyalgia & CFS

No cure has been discovered or developed thus far, but the good news is that fibromyalgia relief in Redwood City is within everyone’s reach.  At Advanced Spinal Care, people can get upper cervical spine care that helps relieve pain and restore a feeling of wellness.

We offer chiropractic services at our office that correct any misalignment in the two topmost bones of your spine: the atlas (or C1 vertebra) and the axis (or C2 vertebra). Research suggests that injury or misalignment in the upper cervical spine makes a person more susceptible to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.  

The injury, trauma, or misalignment is causing the body to release a substance or chemical that becomes a “pain messenger.”  When the body produces this substance in large amounts, fibromyalgia symptoms also begin to increase.

The misalignment of the atlas and axis bones also irritates the brainstem and spinal cord. This irritation leads to more pain, muscle and nerve dysfunctions, and other health issues. People who obtain fibromyalgia relief in Redwood City undergo upper cervical adjustments that help remove this irritation and bring back the entire body to an optimal state.If you want to escape the pain of fibromyalgia and the burden of chronic fatigue syndrome, contact us today to schedule an appointment.
