Patient Success Stories: Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia is a mysterious disorder and it’s no secret that the effects can devastate a person’s life.

Check out these Chiro One patients’ stories about their battles with fibromyalgia and the treatment that helped them.

The Car Accident that Saved Her Life

“I came to Chiro One after I was in a car accident that caused me neck, back and shoulder pain. I also have lupus and fibromyalgia. My fibromyalgia was really painful. I tried medications and injections and it still didn’t help.

My daughter suggested I go see a chiropractor, so I did. Since coming to Chiro One, I have increased movement, less pain, less stress and a better attitude—also, no more pills! My overall health has improved.

In a way, I feel blessed to have had my car accident, because it opened my eyes to Chiro One and a pain-free life.”

Patient Success Stories: Fibromyalgia

“The lowest pain level I’ve experienced in 17 years!”

“When I first came to Chiro One, I was suffering from chronic fibromyalgia pain. My symptoms started in 1992, and it affects everything that I do. I’ve tried medications, injections, surgery, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture and ultrasound.

Prior to joining Chiro One, I was a skeptic. But since starting at Chiro One, I have 80 percent more function and the lowest pain level I’ve experienced in 17 years! Although I’m a little fatigued from the healing process, I love living with less pain.

Active rehab, in addition to chiropractic care, is what has made all the difference.
