Are You Suffering From Fibromyalgia?

Many fibromyalgia sufferers endure chronic pain, stiffness, and burning sensations in areas such as the neck, shoulders, lower back, and hips.


They often explore conventional medical treatments such as painkillers, muscle relaxants, antidepressants, and sleeping pills, and in severe cases, resort to surgery.

However, the root cause of this pain might stem from a misalignment of the Atlas or Axis, the top two bones in the neck. Such misalignments can disrupt nerve communication between the brain and the body.


Interestingly, while there may be a misalignment in the upper neck, individuals might not experience pain directly in that area because the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord lack pain receptors. Instead, painful symptoms may manifest elsewhere in the body.


Upper cervical chiropractic care offers a scientific approach to restoring communication between the brain and body without the need for drugs or surgery.

If you're seeking a non-surgical, holistic approach to combat fibromyalgia, we invite you to visit Charlotte Family Chiropractic Clinic. Our clinic has aided thousands of patients in finding relief from conditions like yours.

Fibromyalgia & Cervical Spine Injuries

While the exact cause of fibromyalgia remains elusive, research and clinical trials suggest a strong correlation between FM and traumatic neck injuries.


In fact, nearly 70% of fibromyalgia patients attribute the onset of their symptoms to a specific neck injury.


These injuries can result from various incidents such as car accidents, sports injuries, workplace incidents, falls, or even birth trauma.

Hyper-extension of the neck can lead to a narrowing of the spinal canal, affecting both the spine and brainstem. This scenario commonly occurs in cases of whiplash from automobile accidents, prolonged dental procedures involving backward bending of the head, or severe bouts of coughing. Surprisingly, even seemingly innocuous activities like painting a ceiling can cause neck injuries that may ultimately contribute to the development of fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia & The Brainstem

The brainstem acts as a conduit, akin to a telephone cable with countless nerve fibers transmitting signals between the brain and the body, governing nearly all vital functions.


When misalignments occur in the upper cervical spine (neck), they can disrupt the function of the brainstem, potentially playing a crucial role in the development of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Trauma or compression affecting the upper neck can elicit symptoms akin to those experienced by individuals with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. These symptoms may manifest immediately following the injury or emerge years later.

At Charlotte Family Chiropractic Clinic we have achieved remarkable outcomes in treating fibromyalgia patients. Clinical trials and case studies provide compelling evidence of the improvement experienced by fibromyalgia patients receiving upper cervical chiropractic care.

KCSC Procedure & Fibromyalgia

Head and neck injuries frequently afflict individuals with fibromyalgia, potentially leading to misalignments in the upper spine. These misalignments can disrupt normal communication between the brain and the body, exacerbating fibromyalgia symptoms. While medications may offer temporary relief, they fail to address the underlying cause of the condition.

The KCSC Procedure is specifically designed to correct these misalignments in the upper spine, thereby restoring normal brain-to-body communication. As a result, fibromyalgia patients often experience long-term relief from symptoms and reduce their reliance on medications.


Moreover, the procedure enables patients to regain functionality and return to a more normal, fulfilling life. By addressing the root cause of fibromyalgia, the KCSC Procedure offers hope for improved quality of life and symptom management for those affected by this challenging condition.
