J Chiropractic Medicine (Sep): 7(3): 115-135 Christensen KD, Buswell K

"Of the 162 cases reviewed, 85.5% had resolution of their primary subjective radicular complaints. The treatment trial was 9 (mean) treatment sessions. The number of days between the first treatment date and the first symptom improvement was 4.2 days (mean). The change in numeric pain scale between initial and final score was 4.2 (median). There were 10 unresolved cases referred for epidural steroid injection, 10 unresolved cases referred for further medication management, and 3 cases referred for and underwent surgery."

Fibromyalgia Studies 

Dr. Mark Pelligrino

Dr. Pellegrino: The two most common factors for fibromyalgia are hereditary factors and trauma factors. Individuals can inherit fibromyalgia, or they can inherit a vulnerability that makes them more predisposed to getting fibromyalgia following a specific trigger. In my experience the most common cause or trigger of fibromyalgia is trauma, especially neck trauma that can be seen with a whiplash type injury. Other factors involved in developing fibromyalgia include infections, underlying rheumatic diseases, hormonal imbalances, and chemical exposures.

Chiropractic treatment of Fibromylagia: 
http://www.jmptonline.org/article/S0161-4754(00)90168-4/abstract 

Summary: Chiropractic is being used to complement traditional medicine to treat fibromyalgia. A recent study examined chiropractic treatment that combined ischemic compression and spinal manipulation. The big question: Do these treatments effectively reduce pain, sleep disturbances and fatigue associated with FM. 

Twenty four subjects participated; all adults from a regional Fibromyalgia Association who suffered form FM for more than 3 months. Each subject received 30 different treatments, combining ischemic compression and spinal manipulation. After treatment patients were evaluated for pain, fatigue levels and sleep quality. 

After just 15 treatments, subject noted significantly less pain and fatigue and improved sleep. After 30 treatments, patients noted average lessening of pain and improvement in fatigue levels and quality of sleep. These improvements remained constant one month after the study ended. 

Results suggest that older subjects with severe chronic pain and a greater number of tender points do not respond as positively to chiropractic treatment, however, chiropractic care should be examined as a possible beneficial treatment for others suffering from FM.

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies. The shoulder joint is really two joints, the glenohumeral joint between the arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder blade (scapula) and the acromioclavicular joint between the acromion (a bony projection off the scapula) and the collarbone (clavicle). The glenohumeral joint is a ball-and-socket joint and the acromioclavicular joint is a gliding joint. ...
