What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a common but painful disorder that causes a variety of symptoms for the patient. This disorder is often diagnosed after all other possible causes of the patient’s symptoms have been excluded by medical professionals.

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia include fatigue, widespread pain, trouble concentrating, and depression. Some patients may also experience other symptoms, such as pain in the abdomen and restless leg syndrome.

What causes fibromyalgia?

Doctors don’t know the exact cause of fibromyalgia. However, most researchers believe that this disorder occurs because of a combination of genetics and environmental factors. Certain illnesses have been linked to an increased risk of fibromyalgia. In addition, many people who develop this condition have a history of physical or emotional trauma.

How does Innovative Medical Center treat fibromyalgia?

Innovative Medical Center approaches the treatment of fibromyalgia differently than traditional medicine. The goal of treatment at this facility isn’t only to alleviate the patient’s symptoms, but also to improve the patient’s overall strength and wellness. Some of the treatment options Innovative Medical Center offers to patients with fibromyalgia include:
• Soft tissue massage – Patients with fibromyalgia often experience muscle tension. Soft tissue massage can alleviate this tension, which may improve the patient’s symptoms.
• Trigger point injections – Trigger point injections administer a specific medication into points on the patient’s body that are associated with pain.
• Corrective exercises – Corrective exercises help patients improve their flexibility, strength, and range of motion. Corrective exercises can also help patients learn to correct problems with posture or the way they move.
• Spinal manipulation – The purpose of spinal manipulation is to address issues with the alignment of the vertebrae.

How effective is treatment for fibromyalgia?

Most patients with fibromyalgia continue to experience symptoms of the disorder throughout their lives. At this time, doctors haven’t found a cure for this condition. However, treatment at Innovative Medical Center can relieve some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and help patients live healthier, fuller lives. While some patients may notice an improvement in their symptoms immediately after beginning treatment, others may need to attend treatment sessions several times before they experience relief. Most patients will continue to improve over time.

Great staff! Love the results. Went in for my knee, and after the first injection, I started walking without a limp and with no pain.

I have been going here for 10 years. Dr roland helped my daughter have a higher quality of life. Every physical activity she does is due to him seeing what her drs refused to see. She had a seizure due to medication she was taking for chronic constipation. Dr Roland noticed she was off a bit and offered to take a look at her back. She was completely out of alignment. He helped her not have the struggles and she now is able to have full range of movement. The office staff is beyond friendly I have always felt welcome here.

I have had an amazing experience with the staff at IMC. I did stem cell replacement with our non verbal severely autistic son and the results were amazing for our family. It was a joy to go through this journey with them and I continue to take my children there and they have helped more then some MD's with treatments. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

What can I say about IMC? Let me start off by saying if every medical office cared about their patients the way these people do, we would have no need for doctors! They are about healing you. It’s as if they’re treating their own mother. The love and concern that they have for their patients is unbelievable! I went in there barely able to move. It took me literally about 5 minutes to get out of a chair, with the help of cane. I cannot believe how far I’ve come! Before my treatment was over I was actually able to take my daughter to an amusement park where I was on my feet walking all day! That ment so much to me! To be able to give my daughter something she deserves. Instead of being cooped up in the house because her dad was unable to leave the house because he was in too much pain. They not only brought hope back into my life. But they made it possible for my daughter to experience life, as she should. I’d give these people the world if I could! Because that’s what they gave to my daughter! Thank you IMC!
