Fibromyalgia is an unusual condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, mood problems and memory issues. Although it is not much understood, medical researchers believe the condition affects how the nerves report pain, both amplifying sensations and creating false sensations. Symptoms of fibromyalgia generally begin after a patient experiences surgery, physical trauma or some episode of psychological stress. The symptoms come on gradually and build over time.
While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, and many doctors struggle to diagnose and treat it effectively. Dr. Roy Nini is a Los Angeles pain management specialist who can help patients suffering from fibromyalgia. He and the pain management team at Full Range Spine & Ortho offer the most advanced technologies and regenerative therapies to help those with fibromyalgia manage their condition and live their best lives.
Patients with fibromyalgia often struggle with a variety of other conditions, including, but not limited to:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Migraine and other types of headaches
- Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome
- Temporomandibular joint disorders
- Postural tachycardia syndrome
An effective treatment plan must address all these concerns and the underlying condition of fibromyalgia to provide patients with the best possible chance at living their best life. Dr. Nini uses a multidisciplinary approach when creating treatment plans for his patients, combining medical treatments, chiropractic treatments, regenerative medicine and other therapies.
