I have heard a lot of mixed opinions on chiropractor stuff and was wondering how it helped or did not if anyone tried it with fibro or osteoarthritis? i want to use any treatment that can help but I have my nervousness about it xD

      I saw a DO who performed osteopathic manipulation therapy. It can be helpful. Cannabis helps a lot too! 💯

      My chiropractor visits have never triggered a flare up, but also hasn't directly impacted my fibro. It does help my overall mobility and movement, though. I found one that was covered by my insurance and he does yearly xrays. A good chiropractor will do wonders for your mobility and will help with gentle adjustments over time. I hope you find one that works for you!

      i am seeing a chiropractor and i think it's helping? at the very least i feel a lot looser and like i have a bit more energy right after treatment. the place i'm going is a fibro-specific center though, so treatment is gentle, they prescribe pt exercises, and there's an in-clinic massage therapist i see right after seeing the chiropractor. at the very least, he did recommend exercises to relieve my sciatica that i can only assume is part of fibro

          @margaretscarry I'm so sorry cannabis isn't legal in your state.. 😢 CBD isn't legal there?

          @margaretscarry you might see if you can get delta-8 thc? it's kind of a legal loophole, when i lived in an illegal state it was a godsend because i could get it from the vape shops there. not as good as delta-9 (what's in the products i can get from a dispensary now) but it helps. cbd can help as well and i believe it can be sold anywhere in the states
