Do you have joint pain all over your body? It may be caused by Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal disorder that causes widespread muscle pain, joint pain, and chronic fatigue, and it could be to blame for your discomfort.
Fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. If you believe your body pain and muscle aches are due to this condition, our doctor can help you. We offer regenerative medicine and chiropractic care that tackles the root cause of your pain.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia can feel like osteoarthritis. Almost everyone with this condition experiences chronic pain that may be deep, sharp, dull, throbbing, or aching, as well as fatigue.
You may also feel pain in your muscles, tendons, and ligaments around the joints. Sometimes, the pain comes and goes or may travel throughout your body. You may also have trigger points, which are tender spots around your joints that hurt when you apply pressure to them.
These tender points are often located under the surface of the skin in the muscular tissue around joints.
Treatment Options We Provide
Regardless of the cause of your pain, one or a combination of our treatments might help to ease your fibromyalgia symptoms.
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP injections contain a significant concentration of platelets, which release growth factors. These growth factors trigger healing bioactive materials to proliferate and encourage your body to self-heal.
- Chiropractic Care: Our chiropractor uses gentle adjustments to the spine to correct misalignments, which can help release the stress behind some of your symptoms and improve pain, fatigue, and quality of sleep.
Symptoms & Causes of Fibromyalgia
In addition to chronic pain and fatigue, if you have fibromyalgia, you may also experience sleep, concentration, and memory issues.
Other symptoms include:
- Mood disorders, such as depression or anxiety
- Numbness and tingling in your hands, arms, feet, and legs
- Swollen hands and feet
- Morning stiffness
- Irritable bowel syndrome

While it's difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of fibromyalgia, your genes may be the culprit, as the musculoskeletal disorder tends to run in families. Other diseases may raise your risks of developing this condition, which is most common in women.
