Effective Fibromyalgia Treatment Must Address the Root Cause for Pain



Fibromyalgia is a challenging health disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, memory difficulties, and mood imbalances. One of the most frustrating aspects of fibromyalgia is how mysterious this condition can seem. Symptoms can seemingly appear out of nowhere. Sometimes symptoms follow a period of physical trauma, infection or psychological stress. In other cases, there is no single trigger. Many patients who come to us are feeling hopeless: they are on multiple medications that provide little real relief, they feel chronically exhausted, and their bodies ache so much their quality of life has been compromised.

If you suffer from fibromyalgia, do not lose hope. Fort Worth chiropractic care can make a difference for your health, providing real pain relief and empowering wellness from within.

Fibromyalgia Pain Relief Starts with Nerve Interference Removal and Whole Body Care

At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, our Fort Worth chiropractor believes that a holistic approach to fibromyalgia treatment delivers the best possible results for patients. Dr. Chris Michlin and certified health coach Nancy Michlin provide complementary services that together address the root cause for pain and support whole body health from within.

Our approach to care begins with gentle chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Michlin is the only Fort Worth and North Texas chiropractor who is board certified to provide Atlas Orthogonal adjustments, a specialized adjustment that brings alignment to the top of the vertebra chain. Neurological interference at the base of the skull and brain stem is an underlying trigger for many fibromyalgia symptoms. While chiropractic care cannot “cure” fibromyalgia, Atlas Orthogonal adjustments can remove the neurological interference that is intensifying a patient’s pain. Atlas Orthogonal adjustments are unique suited to addressing underlying nerve interference and supporting whole body health from within.

Our Approach to Care: Removing Nerve Interference & Enhancing Whole Body Health

Atlas Orthogonal adjustments form the cornerstone of our fibromyalgia treatment plans. Additionally, we do encourage the integration of complementary wellness care services. Regular spinal care paves the road to good health. Nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice from health coach Nancy Michlin will help keep patients continuing down the road to good health. Our number one mission is to alleviate your pain and help you live a healthy, active life!


How Our Chiropractor in Fort Worth Treats Rib Pain



Are you suffering from rib pain? If so, it’s natural to feel frustrated with conventional approaches to care. Many medical providers take a “wait and see” approach or recommend medication to minimize pain symptoms. Unfortunately, a “wait and see” approach and medication won’t address the root cause of pain. Worse, depending on the location of your rib pain, it could later be confused with heart disease or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This can lead to unnecessary treatments that never address the real cause of your pain.

Dr. Chris Michlin is the only chiropractor in Fort Worth who is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist in North Texas. He provides atlas orthogonal and/or activator adjustments to address rib pain.

3 Things You Need to Know About Rib Pain

1. Ribs are connected to the spine and sternum.

The rib cage includes the sternum (breastbone), the 12 thoracic vertebrae and 12 pairs of ribs. Each rib forms two joints with the thoracic spine in the mid-back. If one or both of these joints becomes restricted, you may experience pain in the chest or the back or a radiating pain sensation from the ribs.

2. Back pain could be a symptom of rib joint restriction.

Common symptoms of rib joint dysfunction include pain in the back, typically underneath the scapula or shoulder blade. You may experience sharp pain when breathing, especially inhaling or pain sensations that “wrap” from the chest to the back.

3. Atlas orthogonal adjustments can help relieve rib pain.

The spine is like a chain-link fence. If a single vertebra is out of alignment, this misalignment can impact the entire spine. This includes the joints that connect in the mid-back with the ribs. Atlas orthogonal adjustments are designed to bring correct alignment back to the spine. Adjustments from our chiropractor in Fort Worth may help to address joint restriction in the thoracic spine and where the anterior joints connect with the sternum. Dr. Michlin also uses an activator for rib adjustments. With the activator, he is able to adjust right at the sternum, at the spinal column, and around the entire rib cage for an immediate alignment.
