What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a generalized, long-term condition that produces chronic pain that stems from no particular point of origin throughout the entire body. There is no exact known cause of fibromyalgia. Research suggests a connection between viral infections, immunity, and genetic disposition.


Providing Effective Calgary Fibromyalgia Treatment

Since the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, it’s thought to be related to certain abnormal chemicals in the brain along with the way the central nervous system processes the pain messages that are carried around the body. At Shepherd Health, we use a variety of treatment modalities to treat fibromyalgia sufferers. We combine treatments such as active release, cold laser therapy, shockwave therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy to help those suffering from fibromyalgia to ease their symptoms, here at Shephard Health.

Since this condition affects seven times as many women as men and can typically develop in persons between the age of 30 to 50 years old, studies suggest that 1 in 20 people may be affected by this condition to some degree. However, research shows it can affect anyone of any age including children and the elderly.
