Chiropractic Center Announces Success Treating Wilson Fibromyalgia Patients

WILSON, NC--(Marketwire - Feb 14, 2012) - Kurtz Chiropractic Center announced that the practice has had success treating Wilson fibromyalgia patients. The practice uses a combination of chiropractic care, laser therapy, massage therapy and lifestyle counseling to provide long-lasting pain relief. According to the practice, some patients now no longer need to take medication to manage their pain. Kurtz Chiropractic serves patients in Wilson, Elm City, Bailey, Middlesex, Kenly, Lucama, Rocky Mount, Pinetops, Black Creek and Stantonsburg. The practice also treats personal injury and auto accident injury patients.

Chiropractor Dr. Colin Kurtz announced that his practice provides treatment for Wilson fibromyalgia patients. The practice provides natural pain management through a combination of chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy, massage therapy and lifestyle counseling that focuses on nutrition and exercise.

"Many of our patients come to us feeling frustrated and overwhelmed," said Dr. Kurtz. "Either their medical doctors don't believe their symptoms are real, or they've tried a variety of different medications with no success. We're here to say there is hope! We've had tremendous success using natural pain management to treat the underlying causes for fibromyalgia pain."

Fibromyalgia is a debilitating health condition characterized by chronic pain in the upper, lower, right and left quadrants of the body, typically affecting patients at tender points. Patients suffer from widespread tenderness, including lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and joint stiffness. Patients may also experience muscle spasms, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, and prolonged stress that can affect the body's metabolism.

"Patients with this condition respond remarkably well to a combination of therapies, including spinal adjustments and laser therapy," said Dr. Kurtz. "When the body is out of alignment, the nerves are unable to send and receive messages, leading to internal confusion that is manifest in chronic pain. Adjustments restore balance to the musculoskeletal system by realigning out-of-place vertebrae that may be inhibiting the healing process."

The practice also uses laser therapy to provide relief for sore muscles. During laser therapy, a laser penetrates deep into the affected muscle tissue, increasing circulation that helps stimulate healing and naturally relieves pain. Laser therapy can also help patients recover a full range of flexibility and motion by stimulating and loosening stiff, sore or tense muscles.

The chiropractor also recommends massage therapy for his patients. According to Dr. Kurtz, massage treatments provide immediate relief for lower back pain, soreness at tender points and other pain.

"The act of massage soft muscle tissue stimulates the flow of oxygenated blood," said Dr. Kurtz. "Like laser therapy, this treatment helps promote internal healing while relieving pent-up stiffness in the muscles."

The practice also offers nutrition, exercise and lifestyle counseling to patients. "As a chiropractor, my goal with every patient is to ease pain and enhance well-being, and a combination of treatments including lifestyle counseling can truly make a difference and reducing everything from low back pain to inflammation," said Dr. Kurtz. "We also recognize that what works for one patient does not necessarily work for another, which is why we provide individualized treatment programs. We take the time to get to know each patient and his or her wellness needs in order to create a personalized program."
