Medical health providers have been searching for years to understand Fibromyalgia and get answers to how it starts and how it can prevented. It is believed that in many cases, symptoms begin after physical trauma, surgery, infection, significant psychological stress and may be related to your genetics.1 Researchers believe it’s a neurological problem that takes place causing a change in the way the pain receptors perceive pain. The symptoms can range from:
- Musculoskeletal widespread pain
- Mood issues
- Tension headaches
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome
- Restless leg syndrome
- “Foggy brain”

What we do know is that this condition affects women much more than men and that at this time there is no cure only medications that help patients cope with the symptoms. For some, taking medications may seem like the only solution. Thankfully it is not the only solution, recently published research in February of 2015 looked at non-pharmacological treatments for Fibromyalgia. Physical activity such as aerobic conditioning, muscle strengthening, flexibility training and movement therapies not only improve general health but also decrease the disease risk and progression of the illness. Taking a focus on non-pharmacological approaches seems to be the future of healthcare for Fibromyalgia. Dr. Scott Hansen is a specialized upper cervical NUCCA practitioner who is achieving successful natural results and has been helping free people from the symptoms that have plagued their life for years. With this specific and scientific specialized treatment Dr. Hansen is able to remove pressure on a part of the central nervous system known as the brainstem. This improves the way the brain sends signals to the entire body and body to brain allowing for improved neurological communication and development.
While there are many theories out there that try to explain the cause of Fibromyalgia the reality is that five million Americans are suffering with this condition on a daily basis and if you want to be a part of the many who are now living the life they thought they could never live again, call Dr. Hansen today. 3
