Treating Fibromyalgia with Spinal Manipulation

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published a study that was conducted to determine whether treatment including spinal manipulation could effectively reduce the intensity of pain, sleep disturbance, and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. After 30 treatments, the average improvements by study participants were 77.2 percent for pain intensity, 63.5 percent for sleep quality, and 74.8 percent for fatigue level. These improvements were maintained even one month later. The findings suggest that chiropractic can play a beneficial role in the management of fibromyalgia.
