Our Fairfax Chiropractor Offers Fibromyalgia Treatment

Fibromyalgia pain management using chiropractic principles and techniques are designed to ease pain and improve quality of life for people who must live with fibromyalgia. Chiropractic pain management differs from simply taking medications to relieve pain because of its multidisciplinary approach to fibromyalgia symptoms. Our Fairfax chiropractor can help you cope holistically with the physical, emotional and mental symptoms of fibromyalgia instead of depending on prescription medications that are often ineffective and cause unwanted side effects.


Therapeutic Massage Therapy in Fairfax

Massage therapy in Fairfax is an integral part of a fibromyalgia treatment plan that promotes blood circulation, stimulates endorphin production and helps detoxify your body by forcing toxins and wastes out of body tissues and into the digestive system where they are eliminated. In addition to following a nutritional plan, Dr. Frey recommends including therapeutic massage therapy as part of your fibromyalgia treatment.

Physical and Psychological Benefits of Massage Therapy for Fibromyalgia

Massage therapy for fibromyalgia works to relieve debilitating symptoms by:

  • Reducing depression and anxiety
  • Decreasing blood cortisol levels (cortisol is a hormone known to increase the risk of heart disease, hypertension and diabetes when sustained at high levels in the body)
  • Encouraging cell metabolism and generation of new cells within inflamed tissues
  • Improving immune system functioning to decrease incidences of illness

Chiropractic Manipulation and Adjustment for Fibromyalgia

Since fibromyalgia is thought to be an inflammatory disease affecting all physiological systems, oour Fairfax chiropractor may recommend including chiropractic adjustments in your fibromyalgia treatment plan. Benefits of chiropractic manipulation and adjustment performed by Dr. Frey include enhancing your musculoskeletal system health, restoring joint stability by pumping out waste and excess fluids and improving blood flow to spinal vertebrae and discs. In addition, Dr. Frey's therapeutic manipulation of muscles, ligaments and correlating tissues encourages your body's ability to naturally heal itself by stimulating motor and sensory reflexes to increase circulation of nutritional fluids throughout your body.

Successfully addressing fibromyalgia symptoms requires a whole-body approach complemented by a personalized treatment plan designed especially to treat physical and psychological problems associated with fibromyalgia.
