Fibromyalgia Relief with Chiropractic

North County St. Louis, MO natural fibromyalgia treatmentIf you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Mark Holland sees many people with this particular problem in our North County St. Louis, MO chiropractic clinic. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.

Research Supports Chiropractic Eases Fibromyalgia

In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms or anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.

The subjects who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Additionally, those positive outcomes were long-lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.

Fibromyalgia can substantially reduce your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy in North County St. Louis, MOWe work with many back pain patients in our North County St. Louis, MO chiropractic office, and Dr. Mark Holland and our staff uses an assortment of techniques to help get you out of pain and restore your spine's normal, healthy function. We find spinal decompression to be an effective approach.

Understanding Spinal Decompression Therapy

To help you better understand spinal decompression therapy, think of the discs in your spine like small balloons filled with jelly. When you compress them (which occurs due to normal living, sustaining an injury, or other medical conditions), they can protrude, placing pressure on the nerves in your spinal column. This affects your brain's ability to communicate with tissues in the rest of your body.

If the pressure on the discs becomes too high, they can herniate or protrude. This removes the cushioning between your vertebrae and can cause pain. The purpose of spinal decompression therapy is to reduce this pressure to help restore your body's function and also reduce your level of discomfort.

Can Spinal Decompression Therapy Help Me?

Spinal decompression therapy relieves disc pressure through the use of a specially designed table that carefully elongates your spinal column through slow and controlled movements. This lessens the pressure placed on your discs. Some studies show an increase in disc height by as much as 1.3 millimeters after just six weeks of this treatment.

If you're wondering if spinal decompression therapy could help you feel and function better, simply call our North County St. Louis, MO office and schedule an appointment with Dr. Mark Holland today. Your optimal health is our number one priority!

North County St. Louis, MO non-surgical spinal decompressionDr. Mark Holland sees a lot of back pain patients in our busy North County St. Louis, MO chiropractic office. Many of these people have some form of spinal condition that is causing them pain and distress. Fortunately, Dr. Mark Holland has found that spinal decompression therapy is a great way to help these people.

What is Spinal Decompression and How Can it Help Me?

Non-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment method that takes all of the positive benefits that one normally gets from chiropractic, traction, physiotherapy, exercise therapy, and myofascial release and merges them all into one.

The objective of decompression is to keep you out of the operating room, and that is precisely what it's accomplished for a number of men and women, as it has a reported 85% success rate.

Some of the problems spinal decompression helps with include generalized back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, compression fractures, and joint pain.

Spinal decompression works by reversing the influences of wear, tear, and the force of gravity that compresses the intervertebral discs in your neck and back. The video below shows how it works to eliminate pressure on your back and helps eliminate pain and disability.

To help you better understand spinal decompression therapy, think of the discs in your spine like water balloons filled with jelly. When you squeeze them (which occurs due to normal living, sustaining an injury, or other medical conditions), they can protrude, placing pressure on the nerves in your spine. This affects your brain's ability to communicate with tissues in the rest of your body.
