Fibromyalgia patients suffer with chronic pain, stiffness and burning in the neck, shoulders, low back, and hips. Some other symptoms include depression, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, numbness, dizziness, headaches, and sleeping disorders. Minor exertion can increase the pain and increase fatigue. Some common and very frequently prescribed medications to combat these specifically listed symptoms are pain killers, muscle relaxants, antidepressants, sleeping pills, corticosteroid injections, and maybe even surgery. All of these prescribed medications carry potentially dangerous effects.
Sufferers of FM usually have had a traumatic injury to the neck, whether it had been a small or significant problem. This widespread pain come and go for years and is considered as a chronic pain. Lifestyle changes can improve the intensity and frequency of the pains; however, it only serves as an occasional band-aid. This is where NUCCA can drive that extra mile to help sufferers of Fibromyalgia. When the atlas is out of alignment and the weight of the head in addition to the downward force of gravity is pulling the rest of the spine downward when standing erect; the body has to constantly use unnecessary energy to function properly. As Dr. Roger Sperry, a Nobel Prize for brain research once said, “Better than 90% of the energy output of the brain is used in relating to the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism, and healing.” The distortion of the spine can cause aches and pains. For some, the abnormal stress on the spine due to this atlas misalignment can trigger symptoms of FM. The body can fight against different sources of stress much more successfully than when it is stressed from having to hold the body upright against gravity. Explore the fountain of health and wellness in NUCCA as it may be the solution you have been waiting for.
The following is a testimonial from a fibromyalgia patient who found success with NUCCA.
To those considering treatment: I started going to Synergy Balance where Dr. Yu treated me using the NUCCA method of care at the urging of a mutual friend; he also is a Chiropractor who was interning with a well-known spinal care doctor in OK. My friend had originally encouraged the opportunity for me to begin NUCCA care after learning about the incredible healing results of the NUCCA method during that internship. With his practice being too far to travel, my friend Dr. Warner recommended Dr. Yu, who had recently begun her practice in the Dallas area… Synergy Balance.
So about two months I contacted Dr. Yu. Encouraged by her calm and inviting demeanor, I began sessions with her to treat pain, spinal issues that I have been struggling with for some time. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia with Chronic Fatigue almost ten years ago, and bulging discs around eight years ago. Surgery was recommended for the bulging discs, but I was cautioned to wait as long as possible due to the fact that it is a very serious operation. Due to my on-going need for care for Fibro and CF, coupled with spinal problem, I was always in pain. If it wasn’t the tender points of Fibro, then for sure my shoulder/neck pain was out of sight. I tried various types of treatment, but none really made a lasting change.
A couple of years ago I tried a kind of last-ditch method of treatment called Spinal-Steroidal Injections with the intention of blocking the nerve point that is contributing the greatest degree of pain. For three days I was in heaven, then… after the pain killer wore off, I was right back to where I had started. I was told that I could do this expensive treatment again, but I was discouraged by then.
Finally, Dr. Yu’s treatment has taken me to a new place of hopefulness, and reduced pain. NUCCA is an easy to comprehend, safe, non-harmful way of adjusting the spine. Under very careful evaluation, Dr. Yu made an almost no-pressure adjustment, of which she was able to calculate through her evaluation, based on my particular spinal problem. A great deal of my pain was gone after the first couple of treatments. I experienced the greatest degree of hopefulness in years. Through Dr. Yu and her practice of NUCCA, there is light at the end of the tunnel for me. Fibromyalgia is never completely conquered apart from a miracle, but by my spine being in greater alignment, my systems are able to be strengthened, and I have a life-flow, renewed energy, and better balance. I am on the road to wellness, and together with good health care practices, better nutritional intake, sensible activities and exercise, I have an excellent chance for a normal routine. If you have ever struggled with my issues, you would know that the thought of living a normal life is unheard of. Dr. Yu’s care has made that possible for me, and I feel confident that she could help anyone in similar situations as I was in.
I pray you give Synergy Balance, Dr. Yu, and NUCCA a try… and I know there will be blessings ahead for you, just as there was for me. I am thankful to my friend, Ron Warner, and his wife for encouraging me in this direction.
