Fibromyalgia Treatment in Las Vegas

At Lok Acupuncture Clinic, Dr. Peter Lok and his team use natural and non-invasive treatment techniques to help people find relief from many physical disorders, including fibromyalgia, a condition affecting millions of Americans. Fortunately, despite having no known cure, fibromyalgia is manageable with correct diagnosis and treatment. 

What is Fibromyalgia?

Many people, mostly women, are affected by fibromyalgia, a complicated and nuanced chronic condition that can vary in severity from mild to debilitating. Not only do people with fibromyalgia endure pain, tenderness, and fatigue throughout their whole body, but they also tend to have a higher sensitivity to pain, pressure, and physical touch compared to people without this condition. The exact cause is unknown, but it is believed that it is caused by the interplay of several contributing stressors, including environmental, lifestyle, genetic, and hormonal factors. Risk factors for fibromyalgia may include gender, menopause, poor physical conditioning and debility, trauma to the brain, and potentially a family history of fibromyalgia.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Every person who has fibromyalgia tends to have a unique experience, however common symptoms of the disorder include:

  • Chronic and widespread pain (muscle aches/spasms, joint pain, and chronic headaches)
  • Sleep disruption
  • Fatigue (often described as a feeling of weakness or "heaviness" in the arms and legs)
  • Altered sensation (numbness, tingling, or burning)
  • Impaired digestion (diarrhea, bloating, abdominal cramps)
  • Decreased functional activity and exercise tolerance

Symptoms may fluctuate in intensity and can worsen depending on certain triggers, including mental health stressors, changes in hormones (especially with menopause and a decrease in estrogen), environmental factors such as cold climates or sudden changes in weather, excessive physical exertion (particularly in people with physically demanding jobs).

Treatments for Fibromyalgia in Las Vegas

To treat fibromyalgia, a multi-faceted and interdisciplinary approach is often required, given the nuanced presentation of the disease. Most people with fibromyalgia respond positively to a combination of medications, manual therapy including chiropractic care and physical therapy, massage, relaxation techniques, a healthy diet, and regular physical exercise.

Acupuncture, which utilizes thin sterile needles inserted in trigger points along the skin to stimulate healing within the body, is also a highly effective complement to traditional approaches to fibromyalgia treatment. People with fibromyalgia receiving acupuncture frequently report decreased pain (especially relief from chronic headaches), improved sleep quality, and decreased muscle pain and aches. Not only does this provide pain relief, but can also increase a person's tolerance to physical activity.
