I visited a chiropractor today for first time in 4 years. I have had fibro pain for 6 but diagnosed 6 months ago. I feel better than I have in a long time but its only been 8 hours. What your thoughts on chiro?
I was only diagnosed with fibromyalgia 6 mos ago. I started seeing a chiropractor because I needed to in order to get a prescription for massage so my insurance would cover it. So far the combination along with PT (in warm water pool) has been helping a lot.
Been seeing a chiropractor for almost a year. Started with bulging disc to right shoulder. Now, I see him once a month, sooner if needed. He is amazed I don't see him more because my neck is always out. "Isn't that painful?" he asks. I always tell him I just have more pain elsewhere. Overall, being adjusted on a normal basis has helped greatly. Those small pains that become big pains quickly are not so frequent. I can walk out of the office pain free for a while(if only for a few hours). It's nice to remember what that feels like. Also, tens unit and heavy warm moist heat packs with treatment help with physical and mental exhaustion.
I've always been wondering about this... My stepmother works in health care but she says that chiropractor is a terrible idea, that they only worsen it for the long shot. But I'm in so much pain and no one in the normal health care believes me, I'm starting to run out of options 😢
