Fibromyalgia options in Omaha, NE

Not many fibromyalgia patients know that they have more than one option in chiropractic care. NUCCA Upper cervical chiropractic care is gentle, logical, and often helps those with fibro pain heal in ways that they have not experienced with medications, physical therapy, manual therapy, and traditional chiropractic.

What does fibromyalgia feel like?

Intense muscle aches, with distinct pain points in key muscles around the body are the hallmarks of fibromyalgia. These are the classic “fibro hotspots” and are generally required to have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. In some patients flare-ups of these points are so severe that they can only be touched with a light pressure, if they can be touched at all. Depending on what group of symptoms a patient experiences, fibromyalgia can be extremely debilitating on a daily basis, or a constant, but manageable, annoyance.

What causes fibromyalgia?

From the perspective of modern medicine, there is no single known factor that causes fibromyalgia. Given the varying experiences that patients with this “syndrome” have, this makes sense, but this lack of a single cause is often frustrating to fibromyalgia patients. They want to know what needs to be fixed so that they can feel normal. However, in reality, a cocktail of lifestyle changes and care options may be necessary to help the body overcome a majority of its fibro patterns.

Ironically, getting off the medications one is prescribed for fibromyalgia may be necessary to actually overcome and actually heal from fibromyalgia.

Why does upper cervical chiropractic make sense for fibromyalgia?

Recent research into the origins of the unique patterns of fibromyalgia muscle pain show that there is a miscommunication between the nervous system and the body’s muscle systems. It is almost as if the nervous system is pushing excess signals and energy into the body’s muscular system, causing a build-up of tension and lactic acid. Recent strategies in pharmaceutical treatment of fibromyalgia includes drugs which alter and depress central nervous system firing for this exact reason.

Because of its ability to influence the nervous system, and the tension of the muscles across the whole body, many fibromyalgia patients have found significant help with upper cervical chiropractic care.

Stories of fibromyalgia recovery with upper cervical chiropractic care

Here are excerpts from three compelling stories about fibromyalgia healing through upper cervical chiropractic care, as described by the patients themselves on the upper cervical patient advocate website: UpCSpine.com

From Sharon Brown

I was a 30-year veteran of Fibromyalgia…

Most of my pain was on my left side in my neck, at the base of my skull, radiating down into my shoulder. I also suffered with TMJ, migraine headaches, foot pain, knee & hip joint pain, and facial pain. Occasionally, I had those days that it felt like my skin was turned inside out and all my nerves were exposed. You know, my skin hurt… even my hair hurt.

The medications I was given to attempt to correct my conditions left me even more fatigued and
lethargic than I already was. Eventually, I became virtually housebound and ultimately I became agoraphobic. If I did leave the house, usually my husband drove me around…

After my first spinal alignment, I experienced immediate relief from pain for the first time in 30 years!
I noticed I could breathe better and the whole world looked level all of a sudden. I have never again
suffered from fatigue since that day.

From Sandra Elleman

But that is nothing compared to the surprise I experienced when, despite the gentleness of the adjustment, within ten seconds my hands and arms began to tingle; by 20 seconds into the adjustment my legs were also tingling; and within approximately one minute my back began to tingle and burn as though it had been rubbed with menthol. I don’t know how long it was after that, maybe a minute or two, when I felt this surge of energy, like I wanted to break out running.

Instead, I broke out bawling!” “It could have been because of the immediate relief from pain,…or the anger at the medical community for not telling us about this treatment, or simply the deep thankfulness I felt at having received this wonderful gift.” “…during the months since that treatment, I have reclaimed my life…

From Darla Flemming

I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 7 years ago and suffered from the constant chronic muscle tension; my neck was stiff; I also had headaches among many other symptoms I won’t even list, and then I was involved in an auto injury early in 2001. After that, the low back pain was the worst. I just couldn’t get any better. For 10 months I lived with it…I had tried regular chiropractic care in the past, but didn’t get the same results as I have with the N.U.C.C.A.

High blood pressure improves

Just wanted to let you know how my blood pressure went down from over 145-155/85-90 down to 120/70. I had a life insurance physical shortly thereafter and the results were so outstanding that I got the Preferred Best rating.

All that for a 68 year old who has had problems with hypertension for the last 5 years. You said we could give NUCCA a try and it sure worked well for me.

Help with jaw pains and migraines

I have had migraines and jaw pain for years and they are all gone after only a few visits. I am so grateful and can’t wait to see the results my husband gets.

Off of allergy medication

Brian

I was a sickly kid and have had bad allergies my whole life. I have not had to take allergy medicine since the first correction and am thrilled. It is so great to be able to breathe again and not take medicine that I know has harmful side-effects. It is easier to get through my whole day. Thanks.

No headaches now, with deeper sleep

Carrie

I used to have headaches, really bad ones, at least once a week.  I haven’t had one since I came to your office. I sleep deeper and just have a better sense of well-being. I am so glad I found out about you.

I wanted less anxiety – I got that, plus more than I bargained for

I feel great – no shoulder tightness. All I wanted was to have less anxiety and I got that…and more than I bargained for. My wife and daughter feel great after NUCCA too. Thank you, Marcy.

Better balance while dancing

Dani

I feel very square and my balance in dance class and when teaching is really improved. I told my husband and a friend that they just have to come to see you.

I was very skeptical – worth the trip

Dan

I was very skeptical about NUCCA, but tried it after a work injury. My shoulder was numb, painful and tingly before driving several hours to see Dr. Ziska. Well, the tingling and numbness are gone and I have pain much less often. It was worth the trip!

No more back pain after one visit

Cari

This is great! No more back pain just after one visit. I feel great as a result of NUCCA care.
