The most common cause of chronic musculoskeletal pain and fatigue, Fibromyalgia affects 4% of the population. Disorders of the Central Nervous System are among the causes of Fibromyalgia. Nerves are over stimulated causing excessive pain.
The dysfunctions of the CNS include pain perception problems, neurochemical imbalances, decrease in pain threshold, and inconsistent serotonin levels. Serotonin is a chemical that regulates mood, memory, and pain perception. Ongoing research indicates that chiropractic care may alleviate fibromyalgia. Subjects noted significant reduction in pain intensity, lessened fatigue, and improved sleep quality.
