Do You Suffer From Fibromyalgia
in Keokuk IA?

Are you suffering from fibromyalgia in Keokuk? Fibromyalgia, a contemporary diagnosis describing chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue, was first introduced in 1976. Since its introduction, it has been estimated that 2-6% of the United population has been designated with this diagnosis. Of the 2-6% of people diagnosed, women are affected at significantly higher rates than men. It has even been estimated that as high as 85% of people suffering from fibromyalgia are woman. Some proposed theories for why woman are affected at such higher rates than men have included differences in hormones and possible genetic differences that are present at birth. Despite high rates of occurrence, the cause of fibromyalgia remains poorly understood. Proposed causes have included; hereditary factors, stress, hormonal imbalances, illness, trauma, and a seemingly endless list of other possibilities. Largely due to the vast number of potential causes, western medical practitioners have struggled with treating this clinical syndrome, relying heavily on medications to treat pain and fatigue symptoms. As a result, many patients have turned to alternative medical treatments, including chiropractic, for relief. James Healthcare & Associates Inc. in Keokuk has offered patients relief of fibromyalgia and this article is intended to teach you about the condition and your various treatment options.
