I haven't done the chiropractor since before the fibro...but I get a massage every 2 weeks and my current masseuse is also an RN and she can feel which areas are tight and all sorts of things and she is always correct when she points out a spot and it helps the stress and is very relaxing....also, I recently began to use organic African Shea Butter to rub aches and my masseuse used it for my massage last time and it appears to help with soreness and tightness considerably...
Chiropractic care is a must to me. Keep everything lined up and your own body can do a lot better job healing it's self. I've had one for nearly 40yrs. hope this will encourage you...hugs your way.
Have tryed this ,was not good for me I felt worse having the treatment I think this is because of having arthritis .it seemed to aggravate my joints more than it helped.
Jody, you reminded me of something when you said you really like the massage.....We have a "Wellness Center" in our city that one can "Join" or be sent their by their Dr....My RA dr sent me there for about a 2mo treatment....It was for Fibro and he let the PT guy determine when I could quit....I went into hot pool water 98 degrees and did VERY SLOW walking in the water..It is called Pool Therapy...Then sometimes he would give me a gentle massage around my neck and area in the "land" area where the tables are. I know different places do arrangements different but it would be worth asking your RA dr about his opinion of you taking pool therapy....Hope this helps each of you. Ins pays for it too.
