it has been a long time since i have posted here. i found some relief a few months ago and thought i would mention it to see if it might benefit anyone else. i had thought about going to a chiropractor before but had never gotten around to it. there was a health and wellness fair at my work and one happened to be there so i thought i might as well talk to him. well i ended up going in for a visit and i am soooo glad i did. it has helped more then any meds i had taken and i actually have been able to stop taking my pain pills all together. he doesn't pop and crack bones like a normal chiro....instead he makes a small adjustment to the atlas bone in your neck(hence the name atlas orthogonal). you can't even feel the adjustment but immediately after my muscles and joints feel 10 times better. i have also noticed i am sleeping better and have more energy now then i have since being diagnosed with fm. as far as i have found there aren't very many of this type of chiropractor in any area- i just moved from arizona and am now back in kansas- but if you search for atlas orthogonal there should be a site that will give you info and a dr search. if anyone in pheonix wants to try this, i reccomend dr lavendar in mesa az. hope it helps at least a few of you!
