Fibromyalgia TreatmentManalapan Township, NJ
Effective fibromyalgia treatment can at times be very difficult to find. General medicine such as pain medication does not always provide relief for fibromyalgia. Instead, many who have fibromyalgia have found relief through care here at our clinic. We effectively diagnose, treat and help manage fibromyalgia.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a disorder in which someone feels widespread pain and tenderness throughout the body. While the pain can spread to most areas of the body, it is most commonly felt in the muscles located in the neck, back and abdomen. Other symptoms of fibromyalgia include fatigue, difficulties with sleep and an inability to focus. Fibromyalgia often occurs after a surgery, injury or some other form of invasive or traumatic event.
At our clinic, we are ready and able to help you with your fibromyalgia symptoms. We are well equipped with a dedicated staff of professionals who provide effective fibromyalgia treatment. Here are several of the various ways we can treat fibromyalgia.
On many occasions, fibromyalgia is made worse when the body becomes stiff or tight. If you have tight muscles, they are vulnerable to increased pain and tenderness. We will work with you to stretch tight muscles and loosen up your body. We usually focus the areas that are subject to pain from fibromyalgia. With our care, we can help relieve the pressure and muscle tension that may be aggravating your fibromyalgia.
One of the main goals in fibromyalgia treatment is to relax the muscles and provide relief to any tension that exists. For this reason, properly massaging the painful areas is a great way to provide relief when it comes to fibromyalgia or other pain. We may decide to practice various massage techniques based on where your pain occurs and how serious it feels. No matter what technique we use, a massage will reduce inflammation and relax your tense muscles.
Heat and cold
Heat and cold therapy may also be utilized in the event the fibromyalgia pain is caused by swelling and increased tenderness to an affected area. Cold therapy works to lower the temperature of a certain area of the body. This slows the blood flow to the area and reduces the amount of swelling that exists. Heat therapy works to increase blood flow, which helps speed up the healing process in many instances.
Not only can we help you with in-office exercises and stretches as an effective form of fibromyalgia treatment, but we can also help you form a consistent exercise schedule outside of our clinic. Exercise can be an effective at-home method of keeping your pain at bay.
