Fibromyalgia Q & A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal disorder causing widespread body pain. Dysfunction in the way the brain processes pain signals causes fibromyalgia.

An abnormal increase in brain chemicals changes the way the brain’s pain receptors work and causes receptors to develop an increased sensitivity and overreaction to pain.

Fibromyalgia also triggers associated symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Tension headaches
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Memory issues
  • TMJ disorders

Because fibromyalgia pain affects sleep, the disorder disrupts your ability to perform your routines and limits your personal life and ability to work. The chronic pain also has a psychological impact on your emotional health, increasing stress and health anxieties that exacerbate fibromyalgia symptoms.

Who is at risk of developing fibromyalgia?

Many factors can trigger fibromyalgia:

  • Surgery
  • Infection
  • Physical trauma
  • Excessive emotional stress

In some cases, fibromyalgia develops over time with no significant triggering event. Women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men, and doctors often misdiagnose the condition.

Additional risk factors for fibromyalgia include a family history and certain health disorders like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

How is fibromyalgia treated with applied kinesiology?

Dr. Rainaldo uses chiropractic techniques and applied kinesiology to improve whole-body alignment.

He administers chiropractic care to address trigger points along your spine, which improves your nervous system’s functionality and reduces pain. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Rainaldo also determines other out-of-balance areas in your body and pinpoints any issues affecting your whole-body health.

Dr. Rainaldo utilizes applied kinesiology muscle testing techniques to determine what must be done, and in which order, to satisfy your body’s needs. He provides treatments to relieve chronic pain and other associated fibromyalgia symptoms to bring balance to your whole body.

Fibromyalgia involves a psychological and emotional component due to the intense, chronic, widespread pain. Dr. Rainaldo uses applied kinesiology to identify your life stressors and offers guidance for removing them to rebalance your psychological and emotional health.

After Dr. Rainaldo addresses your pain and identifies its cause, he uses applied kinesiology techniques to determine supplements your body needs to achieve whole-body health.
