When you experience physical pain and discomfort, it may stem from a variety of situations. In some cases, it stems from fibromyalgia and you want to address the discomfort before it interferes with your normal lifestyle and activities. A chiropractor in Toronto provides an opportunity to address the discomfort by identifying the underlying cause of your pain and developing a personalized treatment plan for your situation.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia refers to a musculoskeletal condition causing widespread pain and discomfort throughout your body. Generally, you notice pain in your muscles and joints as well as fatigue or other symptoms.
While it is the second most common musculoskeletal condition after arthritis, fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed as other conditions. The reason is the complexity of the condition. It causes pain, but does not necessarily start from an obvious cause. For example, it may start at any time and does not require a trigger like an auto accident to result in discomfort and pain. In some cases, it may stem from a clear trigger, but it does not always have clear underlying causes.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help With the Pain?
When you notice pain in your body and discomfort in your joints and muscles, chiropractic care in Toronto provides a solution. The treatment improves the alignment of your spine and addresses any excessive pressure or compression on areas of your spine. When your spine functions properly, it reduces the amount of pain you experience and your body heals at a faster pace.
Since a chiropractor specializes in the musculoskeletal system and has training to address concerns in the spine, the treatments focus on the underlying complications that contribute to your pain. As your body heals and your spine functions properly, you will notice lower rates of pain or discomfort. A chiropractor also addresses specific joints or areas of the body with greater levels of pain and ensures that your body functions to the optimal level.
