Fibromyalgia treatment in Evansville can be a mystery. It can be confusing. Let me try to shed some light on the subject.
Fibromyalgia is a complicated condition that likely has more than one cause — although most researchers agree that the primary cause is a breakdown in the normal function of the central nervous system, which creates an abnormal perception of pain.
Today’s blog starts with a disclaimer:
Chiropractors DO NOT TREAT Fibromyalgia; they DO NOT treat the symptoms associated with conditions such as Fibromyalgia. But we can clearly demonstrate that subluxations (pinches on your spine) can cause abnormal pain perception—a clear indicator that the body is NOT functioning correctly. If your open to a new idea when it comes to dealing with your body and keeping it healthy, keep reading….
“There is little doubt that fibromyalgia pain is due to an intrinsic nerve-system dysfunction.”
Journal of Rheumatology
- The National Foundation for Fibromyalgia estimates that as many as twelve million Americans suffer from Fibromyalgia
- Fibromyalgia is the 2nd most common ailment affecting the musculoskeletal system after osteoarthritis
- Up to 40% of fibromyalgia patients have to stop working or change jobs.
- Although it is most common in middle-aged women, Fibromyalgia has become increasingly common in children. Musculoskeletal pain represents the most common problem seen by pediatric rheumatologists. Between 25-40% of children with chronic pain fulfill the criteria for Juvenile Fibromyalgia Syndrome
- Fibromyalgia is by far the most common musculoskeletal problem in relatively young people — at about 50, osteoporosis leads — but below that age, it’s Fibromyalgia which is many times more common than rheumatoid arthritis .
- Up to 28% of adults with Fibromyalgia report the onset of symptoms during childhood.
“Despite its prevalence, Fibromyalgia remains unfamiliar to most people. Many medical doctors were not taught about this condition, because medical schools began teaching about it only recently. The lack of general knowledge, along with the lack of objective physical evidence from routine medical tests, is what leads many on a long and frustrating quest for a solution.”

Women are ten times more likely than men to suffer from Fibromyalgia. Now this has seemingly baffled researchers but I have to think (inserting my own opinion here ) that it has much to do with the smaller neck and upper back structure of the female compared to a male. They don’t have as much muscle, they are smaller and therefore are more susceptible to the stresses and forces that cause vertebral subluxations. Fibromyalgia treatment for Evansville residents is possible. My office specializes in removing interference in the nervous system, which we find is very influential in Fibromyalgia treatment.
Subluxations cause dis-ease in the body, meaning less than optimum function. Many times when there is dis-ease in the body, the persons body experiences other issues as well. This really isn’t that surprising.
“Subluxations of vertebrae occur in all parts of the spine and in all degrees. When the dislocation is so slight as to not affect the spinal cord, it will still produce disturbances in the spinal nerves passing off from the foramina.”
Dr. James Woddersee, Neurosurgeon
“The average Fibromyalgia patient suffers for five years and spends thousands of dollars on medical bills before receiving an accurate diagnosis. As a result of misdiagnosis, more than half of all patients undergo unnecessary surgery.”
Devin Starland, MD
“There is little evidence that we can treat Fibromyalgia patients effectively with drugs. A recent study of patients with long-standing Fibromyalgia demonstrates that expensive medical care does not result in symptom improvement or better function.”
Frederick Wolfe, MD
“The medications used to treat pain and inflammation for most rheumatic disorders is not of great help in Fibromyalgia. Aspirin and NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), such as Ibuprofen, do little to reduce pain. Even more powerful drugs such as corticosteroids do not seem to help the pain, stiffness, and fatigue of Fibromyalgia.”
