New Research Suggests a New Cause for Fibromyalgia 

According to researchers from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, fibromyalgia may be caused by lower nerve fiber density in the skin than those without fibromyalgia. If this theory is further validated, it could lead to new treatments for this chronic condition that currently has no cure.

The current theory blames a process known as central sensitization, meaning that the central nervous system is responsible for causing the pain. For example, if someone suffers from an injury that doesn’t heal right away, such as whiplash, that pain could cause the body to overreact, making the pain spread. New research would suggest a deficiency in nerves spread throughout the skin, meaning that for some reason, these nerves are retaining less fiber than the rest.

What does this mean for a patient with fibromyalgia? Both causes are a derivative of poor nerve health. Chiropractic treatment helps to restore the nervous system connection between the spine and the rest of your body, helping to reduce pain caused by fibromyalgia. This new study may help chiropractors and doctors to better target these nerves and treat their fibromyalgia patients with more precision.
