How Can Synergy Treat the Pain of Fibromyalgia?
October 30th, 2019 by Synergy
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a medical disorder in which you can experience musculoskeletal pain along with fatigue, sleeplessness and mood swings. This condition can appear after surgery, stressful situations or for no reason at all and is more common in women than men. Pain from fibromyalgia can result in tender points on the body. The most common points are the upper chest, the top of the hand, the elbow, kneecaps, hips and upper part of the shoulders.
What causes Fibromyalgia?
Research shows that some of the common causes are thought to be:
- Psychological stress.
- The condition can run in families.
- Some infections and bacteria appear to increase the risk of getting fibromyalgia.
- Physical or emotional trauma. Accidents, incidents such as the loss of a loved one and divorce can also trigger this condition.
However, your doctor will have to make a definitive diagnosis through a careful examination. Researchers have been unable to make a positive diagnosis using X-rays, laboratory tests or biological markers.
How can Synergy Sports Wellness Institute help treat my fibromyalgia?
We can use our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy along with other customized chiropractic treatments to treat fibromyalgia. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a noninvasive therapy which enhances the body’s healing process by breathing oxygen in a moderately pressurized chamber. When oxygen is given under pressure, it dissolves easier into the plasma (blood), making oxygen more readily available for our body’s use.
How can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and other customized chiropractic treatments help?
When the body experiences trauma or an injury, the body responds by becoming inflamed at the injury site and decreasing oxygen flow to the site. This can slow down the healing process. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy will increase oxygen flow to the inflammation sites. Other therapies such as Micro-Current Therapy and Synergy Release Massage Therapy can also help inflammation.
How does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and other customized chiropractic treatments work?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy uses a tube-shaped chamber that patients lie down in during each therapy session. Once the session starts, the patient will begin to safely breath in a higher concentration of oxygen. Since the air pressure in the chamber is also more concentrated than normal, their lungs will retain more oxygen. The bloodstream then carries the increased oxygen throughout the body to aid various conditions.
Micro-Current is a regenerative therapy that applies a small electric current to injured tissues. This current supports the natural current flow in the tissue, decreases inflammation and allows the cells in the traumatized area to regain their capacitance (ability to accept nutrients). Micro-Current has the ability to relieve pain and promote healing by increasing ATP (energy in cells) production.
Synergy Release Massage Therapy treats the soft tissue imbalances and asymmetries that are the root cause of the pain. Structural and muscular balance is the first step to regaining health. Once the balance has been established, then it’s time to treat the symptoms. The specific complaint is normally treated last after the primary cause is addressed.
