Fibromyalgia Relief and Management

The BackFit Health & Spine Center has a very different approach for treating Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain and Chronic Fatigue. Drs. Vogel, Grinder and Krainik and Lori the Nurse Practitioner will be speaking about how their approach has helped other patients with Fibromyalgia. I am impressed with the fact that they include information on Exercise, Nutrition and Life Management in with their treatment!

Check out the following information:

Chiropractic Care We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Chiropractic care helps to ensure the nervous system is running optimally. For a patient with fibromyalgia, this means the body will be equipped with the ability to heal itself with a highly functioning nervous system through chiropractic care.

Corrective Exercises We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique musculoskeletal system. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health, which means a lower risk of painful relapses with fibromyalgia.

Lifestyle Advice We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their fibromyalgia condition. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

Nutritional Counseling We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for managing fibromyalgia? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? We can provide you a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Massage Therapy Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the needs of managing and reducing fibromyalgia symptoms. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.

Medical Care & Pain Management Our medical staff made of M.D.’s, D.O.’s, N.M.D’s, and N.P’s can care for your primary medical needs. Many fibromyalgia patients find relief with our trigger point therapeutic care, where we use non-steroidal natural ingredients to help provide relief in the muscle fibers.
