Although society has an increased understanding of Fibromyalgia, there is still much to learn, and it remains misunderstood. It is a condition that impacts nearly 6 million Americans each year. Chronic, widespread pain can lead to frequent hospital stays and ruin your quality of life. What can make matters worse is the isolating feeling of working with medical professionals that don’t understand the condition and provide ineffective treatment strategies. Here at The Epigenetics Healing Center, we put your concerns first by giving you the compassion you deserve and listening to your needs so that we can design a treatment plan that suits you.
Here are a few more points about Fibromyalgia and how our approach can help.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
Experts debate the exact cause of Fibromyalgia, so it cannot be attributed to a singular cause. But there are several possible reasons why some people develop the condition. One theory is that stressful and traumatic events can trigger fibromyalgia symptoms. These events can include a car accident, major surgery, or another stressful event.
Another possible cause of Fibromyalgia is genetics. Some experts believe genetics plays a role in Fibromyalgia because research shows that adults with Fibromyalgia can sometimes pass down genetic triggers to their children that present themselves at some point. Although the condition commonly presents itself in people in their 40s, the disease can manifest at any age.
Other possible risk factors for Fibromyalgia include:
- Spinal Swelling
Can I Prevent Fibromyalgia?
Since experts aren’t sure of the specific cause of Fibromyalgia, there is not yet a way to prevent it. However, some believe stress management, proper diet, and exercise can help.
