Do you feel like every drop of energy is drained from your body and most days you just hurt, well, all over?

Do you find yourself hesitant to make plans with friends as you can never predict how you will feel on any given day?

Perhaps even after numerous tests with your medical doctor and even specialists, they all say, “We can’t find anything wrong”? 

You are far from alone. According to Statistics Canada, “It is estimated that fibromyalgia affects 900,000 Canadians, or approximately 3% of the population. Women are estimated to be four to nine times more likely to develop the disease than men.” (https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/82-619-m/2006003/4144159-eng.htm). But the sad fact is most of them have been told they’re crazy, lazy, or just depressed–often resulting in remaining undiagnosed for years, or for some, even decades. Many sufferers feel like they have been everywhere, tried everything and are still left suffering, unsure of what to do next.

What Is Fibromyalgia? 

Fibromyalgia (FMS) is characterized as a chronic pain and fatigue disorder. Less commonly known fibromyalgia symptoms can include cognitive difficulties like memory and paying attention, sleep difficulties, headaches, numbness in the extremities, sensitivity to light and sound, stomach issues such as IBS, and restless leg syndrome. The chronic inflammation and lack of proper rest can make you susceptible to other diseases like carpal tunnel syndrome and immune system problems. It is often brought on by physical, emotional or mental trauma and can be difficult to diagnose as it shares symptoms with many other disorders. There are no tests like bloodwork to run to diagnose this disorder so the process typically involves ruling out other diagnoses and then determining if they have the trigger points congruent with fibromyalgia.

FMS causes soft tissue inflammation. Luckily, unlike similar disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, it does not cause permanent damage to your joints, though you may still feel pain and stiffness affecting your joints and surrounding areas. 

 

There is Hope for Fibromyalgia Sufferers! 

Fibromyalgia is a cyclical kind of disorder. You don’t have the energy or pain relief to do the things you need to do in order to regain energy and pain relief, so the cycle spirals forward and usually, downward. With the help of chiropractic care, and a plan specialized for your unique needs, you can work toward the proper function of the spine and restore the communication between your brain and your body.

Have you been told there is no cure and that you should go on heavy medication right away to try and ease at least some of your symptoms? It does not have to be this way. Ignoring your symptoms can lead to additional and worsening symptoms, limited capacity to do your day to day duties and in some cases, depression. There are a number of sustainable, natural remedies to help in managing your pain and exhaustion on a day to day basis, and effectively lessen the symptoms your body experiences.

Imagine how great you could feel without your constant fatigue and nagging pains. Imagine waking up each morning, jumping out of bed, and enjoying the day; no more waking up and feeling like you got hit by a truck. Imagine not having to take handfuls of pain pills that haven’t helped and can have their own set of negative side effects. You CAN have hope again. Chiropractic can be your answer and set you on the path to proper alignment and mobility that allows your body to take care of itself the way it was built to.

    I came to see Dr. Nathalie when I was five months postpartum with chronic migraines, fibromyalgia and general aches and pains post-baby. I was skeptical, as I had never tried Chiropractic care, but after trying acupuncture, massage and physio, I needed something different. I immediately felt welcome at my assment when Dr. Nathalie greeted me and asked her assistant to hold my baby - so helpful and kind! We came up with a plan for care, and after two months of treatment I have noticed an absolutely amazing decrease in pain. I am sleeping better, and have more energy.

    Dr. Nathalie is exceptional at her job, and I love listening to her #HackYourHealth podcast while waiting. The office staff are warm and inviting, and I love the ability to schedule appointments online, especially the same day if needed.

    I am always blown away when Dr. Nathalie remembers details about my personal life, as she sees so many patients, and it even though adjustments are super fast, she always makes me feel like I am a valued client and that she genuinely cares about mt health.

    If you are looking to improve your quality of life and health overall, I urge you to visit Dr. Nathalie ASAP. Particularly if you suffer from fibromyalgia, or postpartum pain. Thanks to Dr. Nathalie and the staff for your care (and always having warm tea!).

  • I got screened about a month ago and was shocked at what I saw; but also relieved to finally have some answers. I’ve been to other chiropractor before but never had a screening and I have always been bed ridden in pain after “treatment”.
    It’s been 3 solid weeks going to see Dr. Natalie Beauchamp now and I feel amazing already. After the first week, my body felt weird...it has been so long that I have been in pain that I forgot what pain free felt like.
    Not only is she helping to correct my body but she uses different techniques as I also have fibromyalgia which needs to be handled differently.
    She’s wonderful as well as the rest of the staff. They are all so caring and helpful and take the time to answer all your questions and concerns. I’m extremely happy that I made the decision to try this place and have followed through with the treatment plan. Such a simple thing yet changed so much in my life and for the better

    I highly recommend this clinic.
