A new study, published in the January 2009 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, the official scientific journal of the American Chiropractic Association, lends some interesting light on the subject of conservative care and fibromyalgia.
The study, authored by Michael Schneider, DC, PhD and others, suggests that certain conservative care measures, often used and prescribed by chiropractors my be helpful in the treatment of fibromyalgia. The study was overseen and administered by the Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease that causes muscle and connective tissue pain along with pain from what would typically be non-painful to an unaffected person. The disease affects women primarily and is seen most often in people in the 30-50 year age range.
