Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by widespread, migrating, and often debilitating pain and fatigue, which prevents patients from accomplishing everyday tasks, as well as functions and activities of daily living.
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.
There is little doubt that fibromyalgia pain is due to an intrinsic nerve system dysfunction.
The cause of fibromyalgia must involve one or more abnormalities by which the central nervous system interprets pain signals.
Women are ten times more likely than men to suffer from fibromyalgia. A study published in the American Journal of Medicine reported that in a group of fibromyalgia patients, who had received chiropractic care, the majority of them obtained some type of improvement, and nearly half obtained great improvement.
