Fibromyalgia - A Natural Cause

Does your deep, achy pain prevent you from doing things you enjoy?

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Always TiredMany people who suffer from fibromyalgia are more sensitive to pain than the general population. Another common fibromyalgia symptom is fatigue. It can make concentrating on tasks seem impossible. Some natural ways to lessen these symptoms in the short term include (1)

  1. Stress reduction
  2. Stretching gently – 30 seconds per stretch
  3. Gentle, slow exercise – walking, exercise bicycle
  4. Adequate sleep

Fibromyalgia treatment can be costly, and often involves long-term medication and possible injections. While this treatment plan may reduce symptoms in the short-term, many are looking for an alternative solution.

How does my neck contribute to fibromyalgia?

Houston fibromyalgia specialist When the top bone in your neck (atlas) misaligns, it creates pressure on your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is responsible for sending signals to and from your brain. When there is pressure on your spinal cord, the signals are distorted. This can potentially lead to chronic pain, fatigue, and other fibromyalgia symptoms.

Dr. Minogue is trained in NUCCA – a gentle, specific chiropractic technique aimed at correcting the atlas. NUCCA is incredibly precise and does not involve any popping, twisting, or cracking.  Through realignment of the atlas, there is reduced pressure on the spinal cord. This allows for proper signals to be sent to and from the brain. This may lead to a reduction in fibromyalgia symptoms.

Soriano et al. described a case of a 31-year-old fibromyalgia patient who saw a decrease in her symptoms within 2 months of receiving atlas care. After 5 atlas corrections over the course of 18 months, the patient reported that they no longer needed their medications to manage their symptoms. (2)
