When looked at as a problem with a cause and its effects a different approach to care can be taken. Although Fibromyalgia can be a complicated condition, this approach actually simplifies your care and healing. There are 3 identifiable causes of Fibromyalgia; the complication is identifying the 1 or ones that apply to you.
Structural Abnormalities: The easiest way to demonstrate this is to take a finger and twist it a bit. This will cause pain (and a structural abnormality) so don’t twist too hard. How many pain killers will you need to take to fix this problem? If you answered it will never get better with this “treatment” you are right. If your solution to remove the pain was to untwist the finger and fix the abnormality you have an understanding of the necessity to repair the problem instead of masking it. A complete structural analysis is needed to evaluate your particular problem.
Neurologic Imbalances: All of your muscles are controlled by your brain. All postural or back muscles are controlled by a specific part of the brain called your cerebellum. When one side of your brain is working faster or slower than the other side postural abnormalities and musculoskeletal pain can occur. If this is happening to you, the question I will ask again is “how many drugs do you need to take to fix this problem?” The answer is drugs will not fix the problem but they may mask the pain. A Functional Neurologist is trained to correct imbalances of the cerebellum, relieving pain.
