- Are you one of the 5 million Americans who suffers from fibromyalgia?
- Fibromyalgia is a mysterious, very painful condition that affects the connective tissues of your body.
- Symptoms of fibromyalgia include fatigue, pain in joints, and a nervous system that is very sensitive to the environment.
The Mysterious Origins of Fibromyalgia
Eighty percent of sufferers of fibromyalgia are women, and because there is no test for this condition, they are often seen as making up the pain or exaggerating. Don’t fall into that trap. Fibromyalgia and the accompanying pain is real. Just as this is a misunderstood condition, there is also no one treatment that has been shown to work every time for every person.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Offers Relief
Fibromyalgia is the perfect example of how, when Western, biomedical medicine fails, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can step in and offer relief. Newport Acupuncture Center offers a number of treatments that can be effective for relieving fibromyalgia symptoms. Acupuncture can help to relieve joint pain by relaxing the muscles tensed from pain, increasing healing blood flow to the affected areas, and giving your the overall feeling of well being that fibromyalgia has stolen from you. The balancing of the Chi that runs through your meridians can relieve pain. The endorphin and serotonin that can surge after an acupuncture treatment can make you feel wonderful. Chinese herbs can also be used to improve your pain levels and overall sense of well-being
