Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Treatment in Loveland

Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes widespread pain and tenderness in your muscles and soft tissues. It is a syndrome, meaning it has a set of symptoms that typically occur together, but there is no known cause for the symptoms. The pain and tenderness tend to come and go and are located in different areas of the body. Fibromyalgia affects about 3-5 percent of the general population and it is most common in women; however, men, as well as children, can also develop the disorder. There are certain conditions which may increase the risk of fibromyalgia, including rheumatic diseases, such as lupus, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Fibromyalgia can disrupt your life and it is impossible to predict how it will exactly affect each person; the symptoms may change from day to day. However, there are some common symptoms associated with fibromyalgia and the good news is there are treatment options available through Gateway Family Chiropractic to help relieve your symptoms.

What Are the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia?

Although there is no exact known cause for developing the symptoms of fibromyalgia, researchers theorize that the symptoms sometimes begin following a physical trauma, infection, surgery or significant psychological stress. In other situations, the symptoms appear gradually and accumulate over time without a specific triggering event. Some of the most common symptoms may include:

  • Muscle aches, which is generally the first symptom of fibromyalgia. Many people with fibromyalgia complain of an aching, deep muscle pain that cannot be stretched out. It may feel like a pulled muscle, but may also have a burning, aching sensation.
  • Headaches, specifically chronic headaches or migraines are a common symptom of about half of all fibromyalgia suffers. Although the exact relationship between fibromyalgia pain and headaches is not known, it is thought to be a chemical imbalance. Headaches tend to come on suddenly and may be triggered by other muscle pains.
  • Tender points have been identified by experts as being found on the front of the neck, the back of head, between the shoulders, the elbows, top of the chest, inside of the knees and tops of the hips. The tenderness in these areas may occur in only a few spots or you may feel tenderness in several different places.
  • Fatigue is an extremely common symptom of fibromyalgia. The joint stiffness and muscle pain often make it difficult to sleep, resulting in chronic fatigue. It has also been shown that restless leg syndrome and sleep apnea often occur with fibromyalgia.
  • Insomnia, problems falling asleep and frequently waking up during the night are also common side effects of fibromyalgia.
  • In some situations, the physical pain of fibromyalgia may have an effect on your ability to solve problems or think clearly. This cognitive problem is often referred to as “fibro fog”.

We couldn't find anything that worked! We brought him to Gateway Chiropractic in Loveland. With steady treatments his ear infection and other symptoms went away. He is healthy and now growing without ear infection complications. This was a blessing for our baby and our family! We are so grateful!"

  • "After a thorough and thoughtful review of the x-rays of my back and hips, Dr. Hughes adjusted me from my head to my knees. Yep, my knees! I was able to kneel down on the floor with my kids for the first time in years with no stiffness or achy knees. During the adjustment I felt unhurried and relaxed. I left with more range of motion in my neck, shoulders... & knees. Thank you! I recommend Dr. Hughes as a qualified and caring chiropractor!"
    Richard T. - Loveland, CO
  • "The staff is amazing. The practitioners were more than happy to try and treat my severe neck pain and limited range of motion. I could hardly move my head and upper back 2 weeks ago. After a series of x-rays to I.D. the problem, some other quantitative testing, both chiropractors were able to treat my PROBLEM in addition to diminishing my SYMPTOMS. After 2 weeks, I have full range, hardly any pain, slept better and more energy. I would HIGHLY recommend beginning ANY un-wellness at this clinic prior to MD approach to medication.

  • "I have severe arthritis. The pain getting worse & I thought I might need to have a hip replacement. Even after the first adjustment my hip felt better and I could finally sleep all night without waking in pain. Now I have almost no pain most nights and I am walking without limping. I am now doing yoga and Zumba, two activities I ahd stayed away from because my hip pain just wouldn't allow it! I had never gone to a Chiropractor before, now I don't think I will ever stop!"
