What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a condition affecting the central nervous system and is associated with widespread chronic pain, muscle pain, chronic fatigue, memory problems, and mood changes. This neurological problem also causes tenderness or sensitivity to touch.
If you have this disease, this pain and tenderness tend to come and go and may cause joint pain all over your body. You may notice this tenderness in specific areas of your body, such as the back of your head, sides of your neck, shoulders, chest, elbows, and knees.
Apart from body pain and muscle aches, other fibromyalgia symptoms include:
- Sleep problems
- Foggy memory
- Depression or anxiety
- Migraine or tension headaches
- Digestive issues (e.g., irritable bowel syndrome or gastro reflux disease)
- Overactive bladder
- Pelvic pain
- And more
Thanks to advanced regenerative medicine treatments, you can get effective pain relief from chronic diseases like fibromyalgia, without the risks associated with painful and complicated surgeries or the side effects of addictive pain medication. Our procedures are simple, minimally invasive, cause little pain or discomfort, and can be done at our medical clinic.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma injections use a concentrated serum of growth factors processed in our office from your blood. These healing agents activate your body’s natural healing response to repair damaged tissue.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections are suitable if you are suffering from fibromyalgia pain and have active muscular pain points. The technique involves introducing plant-based anti-inflammatories into the center of the trigger point to release muscle tightness and relieve pain. Injections are an outpatient procedure given in-office. They are quick and relatively painless. This treatment can be done in several locations of the body where muscles are triggering your fibromyalgia pain.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
Although anyone can be diagnosed with fibromyalgia, it’s more prevalent among women. The condition often starts mid-adulthood but can occur in teens and the elderly. If you have health issues affecting your joints, muscles, and bones such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus, you are at an increased risk of developing fibromyalgia.
