Chiropractic care for Fibromyalgia

A natural solution to relieve and manage joint and muscle pain caused by fibromyalgia.

Understanding Fibromyalgia and how routine chiropractic care can help manage pain.

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is the world's most common musculoskeletal condition. It's a chronic disease that can be identified with widespread joint and muscle pain, areas of tenderness and/or general fatigue. Because these are all symptoms that cannot be measured through tests and are subjective to the individual, there is no clear cause of fibromyalgia, making it very commonly misdiagnosed. 

Some symptoms that those with fibromyalgia may also experience include:

  • Fatigue

  • Trouble sleeping

  • Sleeping for long periods of time without feeling rested

  • Headaches

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Inability to focus or difficulty paying attention

  • Pain or dull aching in the lower abdomen

How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those With Fibromyalgia?

Chiropractic care is a great non-invasive way to relieve pain caused by fibromyalgia. Chiropractic treatment offers a non-invasive, drug-free, and extremely effective option for reducing the limitations fibromyalgia causes. Chiropractic care can reduce the use of over the counter pain medications.

Chiropractors provide gentle, non-invasive adjustments that reduce restriction in joints. The adjustment is helpful in reducing joint inflammation that causes pain, restores joint mobility, and improves the function of the nervous system. Spinal health allows the body to better manage symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. 

Listed here are some of the benefits of chiropractic adjustments can provide to fibromyalgia patients:

  • Reduced pain/discomfort

  • Increased Range of Motion

  • Increased Flexibility

  • Increased activity/better lifestyle


In order to see if chiropractic can help, a detailed physical examination should be performed, and if necessary x-rays should be taken. Fortunately, Beach Cities Chiropractic offers on-site digital x-rays that can be reviewed immediately. This examination and consultation will determine if chiropractic can help. If so, a tailor-made care plan will be created for you.
