What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder that involves widespread musculoskeletal pain and tenderness throughout the body. While women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men, the condition occurs in both sexes. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia increases painful sensations by altering the way your brain processes pain – this occurs due to repeated nerve stimulation.
Symptoms of Fibromyalgia
It’s difficult to determine whether or not you’re actually suffering from fibromyalgia without scheduling a consultation with our fibromyalgia specialist. We’ll provide a comprehensive examination in our Kingwood office to help determine root causes, followed by a personalized recommendation regarding fibromyalgia treatment.
Fibromyalgia symptoms are complicated in that there isn’t always a concrete reason for them presenting themselves. Sometimes symptoms will begin after a physical trauma, surgery, or significant psychological stress. Other times, symptoms simply accumulate over time with no triggering event.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia affect the nerves, muscles, and bones of the body. They typically include:
Widespread pain – Typically described as a dull ache that’s lasted for at least three months. Pain is considered widespread when it’s felt on both sides of the body, as well as above and below the waist.
Fatigue – Many people suffering with fibromyalgia report feeling tired even after long periods of sleep. Occasionally, sleep will be disrupted by periods of pain. If you find yourself consistently waking up tired after a full eight hours of sleep, we can help!
Cognitive and Memory Problems – Often referred to as the “fibro fog,” this symptom affects a person’s ability to focus, pay attention, and concentrate. Short-term memory can also be impacted in some cases. You may also feel yourself increasingly anxious or depressed.
Increased Sensitivity – You may be feeling an increased sensitivity to temperature, bright lights, or loud noises. Typically, headaches will accompany this increased sensitivity.
Only a fibromyalgia specialist will be able to evaluate your symptoms properly and determine the best course of action regarding fibromyalgia treatment.

Causes of Fibromyalgia
As of now, doctors don’t know exactly what causes fibromyalgia, nor do they believe it occurs for any one reason. Most believe it occurs as a result of a combination of factors, including:
- Genetics – Fibromyalgia tends to run in families among siblings or mothers and their children. Researchers believe certain genetics may make you more likely to develop the disorder
- Infections – Certain illnesses or infections have been known to aggravate symptoms of fibromyalgia
- Trauma – Fibromyalgia can be triggered by physical trauma, such as a car accident. It can also be the result of psychological trauma and stress

Our fibromyalgia specialist provides the most logical and effective fibromyalgia treatment options. Our goal is not only to return your body to an optimal state of health, but to keep it there and show you how we achieved it.
We evaluate each patient thoroughly, take the necessary x-rays, then treat them accordingly based on what we find. We believe in treating the person, NOT the condition – and root causes as opposed to just symptoms.
Chiropractic treatment can help alleviate symptoms of fibromyalgia. Our team will provide a comprehensive evaluation, followed by developing a fibromyalgia treatment plan based on your condition. Our care centers around optimal positioning of the nerves, muscles, and bones of the body.
Misalignment of bones in the body can cause increased pressure on nerves. Because of this pressure, these nerves send pain signals to the brain – of course, this is only amplified if you’re suffering from fibromyalgia. Chiropractic alignment relieves pressure on these nerves and helps halt the pain signals to the brain, leaving you pain-free and living a higher quality of life.
