According to the American College of Rheumatology, Fibromyalgia is the 2nd most common rheumatoid disorder in the United States. Symptoms of Fibromyalgia include chronic, widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, stiffness of the joints, and disturbed sleep. Patients who suffer from Fibromyalgia often spend numerous years seeking effective treatment through western medicine. Often times patients live in chronic distress as nothing seems to soothe their ailments. Our office works to use a variety of methodologies to address and treat not only the surface symptoms of fibromyalgia, but also cure the underlying issues. When patients come to our office a combination of evaluations are done in order to assess each person's individual situation. Pulse diagnosis, which involves feeling pulse points in the wrist, visual tounge diagnosis, and a thorough history will assist the doctor to determine the best course of treatment for each patient.
I would recommend a comprehensive treatment of fibromyalgia that includes acupuncture, herbs, nutritional supplementation, and therapeutic exercises such as yoga. Since the condition is caused by a variety of factors, its treatment must be multi-layered.
