Fibromyalgia is known for widespread pain throughout the body and stiffness in the muscles. As much as 10% of people suffer from this condition. It generally begins between the ages of 20 and 50, with women diagnosed more often than men.
Here is a list of some of the most common symptoms:
Feeling stiff upon awakening
Chronic headaches or migraines
Tenderness in the face
Digestive problems, irritable bowel syndrome
Anxiety or depression
Memory and concentration problems
Spasms or muscle tightness
The reason for fibromyalgia remains a mystery among the medical community. However, recent research is in agreement that trauma to the head or neck may be the underlying cause. This could be due to a car accident, whiplash, or a concussion, among other things. It may take many years for the end result of trauma to manifest itself as fibromyalgia. Therefore, it is important not to dismiss an accident from the past as a possible cause of the pain one is feeling today.
A misalignment of the upper neck can place undue pressure on the brainstem. This is particularly true if the C1 or C2 vertebra has moved. The good news is that this type of injury can be corrected by a natural method.

At The Balanced Atlas, we have been specially trained to find these tiny misalignments of the neck. If the misalignment is just ¼ of a millimeter, it can wreak havoc on the entire body. This hinders communication and blood flow to and from the brain, potential leading to a number of chronic health problems, including fibromyalgia.
We use a gentle method to realign the bones of the neck, thus restoring communication and allowing the body to repair the existing damage. This often results in fewer fibromyalgia symptoms. Some see the condition go into remission and not return.
