What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic pain, joint pain all over, and problems with thinking and memory. It affects people of all ages but is most common among women between 30 and 50 years old.
Fibromyalgia symptoms affect each person differently. When your fibromyalgia flares up, you may experience symptoms like:
- Burning, throbbing, stabbing, or shooting body aches
- Increased sensitivity to pain
- Enhanced sensitivity to touch and temperatures
- Exhaustion or unexplained tiredness
- Headaches or migraines
- Mental fog
- Mental health problems like mood swings, anxiety, and depression
- Non-restorative sleep (being unable to progress into a state of deep sleep)
- Stiff joints and muscles
- Dizziness and vertigo
You may experience some or all these symptoms, making fibromyalgia a difficult disorder to live with. Thanks to leading-edge regenerative medicine, there are all-natural pain relief treatments for chronic diseases like fibromyalgia.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Platelet-rich plasma therapy involves processing a little bit of your blood to isolate its components. PRP has a concentration of platelets that is about five to six times higher than that of a regular blood sample. This injection contains a high dose of healing substances to help you get rid of fibromyalgia symptoms.
Our other non-invasive, therapeutic treatments—chiropractic care, trigger point injections, and laser therapy—focus on easing pain, adjusting your body systems the correct positioning, improving your mood, and enhancing your well-being.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
Medical researchers are still investigating the specific cause of fibromyalgia. We do know that it triggers include traumatic life events, illness, injury, operations, and stress (e.g., life events such as divorce or birth). When left untreated, it can lead to other health conditions.
It is difficult to live with chronic pain, and the fatigue caused by this may affect your daily life and mood. Patients have found our treatments effective in helping them to live a normal life with this disease.
