Fibromyalgia Treatment

Fibromyalgia is a crippling and chronic pain syndrome that affects millions of Americans. Characterized by chronic pain, chronic fatigue and sleeping problems, Fibromalgia can be a devastating illness. Seen more in women than men, Fibromyalgia sufferers usually are on multiple medications. Some doctors don't even believe Fibromyalgia is a real disease. There are no lab test for it, no imaging studies such as CT, MRI or Ultrasound will diagnosis Fibromyalgia. At Anthony Medical & Chiropractic Center we take a different approach to Fibromyalgia. Starting with a thorough examination including neurological testing to determine if there are problems with the cerebellum, we can often times make a HUGE difference in Fibromyalgia patients pain. Different therapies such as whole body vibration, warm calorics and unilateral chiropractic adjusting are just a few of the treatments we offer for our Fibromyalgia patients.


I've had several medical problems for the past 25 years. Lupus, Fibromyalgia, bad back, bed ridden and numerous joint injuries. I've been on narcotic pain killers such as Morphine & Oxycontin which helped somewhat but the side effects were bad. I've been on non-steroid anti-inflammatory which were no help. I've even had steroid injections, but they only provided temporary relief. I've tried everything for relief. Massage, surgeries and some chiropractic care. Since I started with Dr. Rick I have made steady progress. Although I've had a few set backs, I really have made tremendous strides in health. I am truly living for the first time in years. Dr. Rick has truly been a God-send to me. I have had the best results, considering I came from being bed ridden. I am up living life and enjoying it. Much less pain and much more freedom to move about. Life more abundantly! I wholeheartedly support Dr. Rick and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Rick.
