Fibromyalgia: The Invisible Illness

    "Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that affects millions of people around the world. It is characterized by widespread pain and tenderness throughout the body, as well as fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and cognitive problems.

    The cause of fibromyalgia is not known, but scientists believe it is related to changes in the brain chemistry that affect how it processes pain.

    The main symptoms of fibromyalgia are widespread pain, fatigue, and trouble sleeping. Other symptoms may include muscle and joint stiffness, tenderness to touch, numbness or tingling in the arms and legs, problems with concentrating and thinking, heightened sensitivity to light, noise, odors, and temperature, and digestive issues.

    Unfortunately, there is no cure for fibromyalgia, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms. Treatments may include exercise or other movement therapies, psychological and behavioral therapy, and medications.

    If you or someone you know is living with fibromyalgia, Dr. Graziano is here to help. A majority of practitioners will recommend anti-inflammatory diets, to increase your intake of magnesium or prescribe prescription medications that come with a slew of uncomfortable side effects. All of these are band-aids, masking the symptoms rather than fixing them.

    "In addition to acupuncture, which has been used to treat pain for thousands of years, we use ATP Resonance BioTherapy™. It’s a cutting edge technology that targets specific tissues in the body. It then reprograms them for optimal performance. We have protocols for a myriad of chronic conditions from neuropathy to tendonitis.
