Fibromyalgia Q & A

The Wellness Center PDX

What is Fibromyalgia?

A person experiencing fibromyalgia deals with musculoskeletal pain. This pain feels unending and can be accompanied by sleeplessness, fatigue, or noticeable mood issues that can dramatically impact a person's lifestyle. Someone may get this disorder after experiencing an infection, physical trauma, or an event that is emotionally stressful. In addition to feeling fatigued, a person can show memory problems. They may have difficulty doing things at work, school, or at home due to the chronic pain.

How is Fibromyalgia Treated?

At The Wellness Center, Dr. Gabriel provides treatment for fibromyalgia so a person doesn't have to deal with the chronic pain that impairs their lives. Treatment involves chiropractic care, acupuncture or massage therapy to target the pain and relieve it. In addition, some patients also obtain pain management plans from their regular doctors that prescribe anti-inflammatory diet modifications.

How is Fibromyalgia Diagnosed?

A person should get a physical examination from their doctor to determine if the cause of the pain is from fibromyalgia or from some other medical condition. The doctor's examination will focus on the body's 18 trigger points, which are areas that may exhibit pain if pressed on. The doctor presses on the trigger point to determine the severity of the pain and to see if the pain radiates to other areas of the body. If a person shows pain in 11 of the 18 trigger points, they are diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

Testimonials

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had a really attentive chiropractor who made sure that I was comfortable and heard about all of the offered services that would help me with my back problems. I came away feeling confident that the doc would help any way they can, and that's always cool. Definitely recommend."
    James Wells
  • "I was very impressed with the whole crew at Wellness Center PDX! Professional and compassionate, from the front desk to the clinicians. They talked me through procedures to ensure that I understood what was happening and what they needed to accomplish. Some temporary facilities issues (the A/C was scheduled for repairs, as it had not been operated since the previous autumn, and had been found to be out of repair) marred the visit, but staff had worked to mitigate the impact. Definitely worth a second visit. I'm glad I went."
    Brian Hester
