Helping Patients Successfully

Structural chiropractors, such as us here at Mount Maunganui Chiropractic, have had success in helping patients with fibromyalgia find relief from their symptoms. We are a specially trained group within the chiropractic profession. Our focus is on making sure the central nervous system is working properly at the brainstem and structural level. Such things as whiplash, sports injuries, car accidents, and falls can cause a misalignment to occur in the top two bones of the vertebrae. This can cause the head to shift position leading the entire body to begin to compensate for this disruption. The brain, brainstem, nerves, and spinal cord begin to function improperly sending the wrong signals to and from the body and the brain.

When this misalignment is corrected by a structural correction chiropractor, normal flow of blood, oxygen, cerebrospinal fluid, and nerves can begin. Healing can take place, and the end result may be a decrease in many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia, or possibly a total remission.

For the vast majority of our patients at our Mount Maunganui clinic that present with fibromyalgia, there has usually been a significant overall improvement in their condition. If you or someone you know is suffering call us at (07) 574 3099 for a consultation and to set up a time to have your pelvis, spine, and nervous system checked.
