Whether or not patients choose to pursue their road to health at our clinic, we want to reach out to make sure there’s no one suffering needlessly when help is out there. No one should have to live with chronic pain
Panama City, FL (PRWEB) October 10, 2017
For the month of October, the Bay Clinic of Chiropractic will be observing Fibromyalgia Awareness Month in an effort to do its part to strike a blow for community health.
“During Fibromyalgia Awareness Month, we will be offering new patients fibromyalgia screenings, consultations, and exams—a value of $225—for only $47,” says Dr. Salamay, founder of the Bay Clinic and longtime chiropractor in Panama City, FL.
“This course of informational and diagnostic meetings includes a thorough case history, review of medical records, and laboratory work, culminating in a report of findings of what we can or cannot do to help.”
A poorly understood yet virulent disease affecting millions of Americans, fibromyalgia is a devastating condition that causes pain and oversensitivity throughout the body’s tissues. Sufferers experience chronic pain as a part of their daily life as well as a variety of related symptoms, such as insomnia, sensitivity to heat or cold, and numbness or tingling. As fibromyalgia is an “invisible illness,” sufferers of this condition are often disbelieved or stigmatized by friends and acquaintances. This social shame, coupled with daily pain that can be unbearable, makes normal life difficult if not impossible for fibromyalgia patients.
Yet according to this Panama City chiropractor, there is hope, and it lies in precise diagnosis and treatment: “Although the exact cause of fibromyalgia is not fully known, functional medicine practitioners understand that it is linked to dysfunction in the brain and gut, the liver, the thyroid, and the adrenal glands,” Dr. Salamay explains. Poor function in these parts of the body are difficult to treat with conventional methods, and most doctors resort to surgery or opioid prescriptions to mask the pain rather than addressing the root cause.
What’s more, appropriate treatment varies based on the origin of a specific patient’s fibromyalgia. “What works to fix imbalances in the thyroid won’t be effective if the problem is really in the immune system or the adrenals,” Dr. Salamay says. “This is why it’s really important to start fibromyalgia treatment by using effective diagnostic tools, like what we use for our patients at the Bay Clinic of Chiropractic.
Unlike conventional doctors, the Bay Clinic specializes in functional medicine practices, which are largely successful at providing long-term relief and restored function to these bodily systems. These practices include brain based therapies, nutritional counseling, and advanced chiropractic that involves addressing the root cause of a patient’s fibromyalgia and chronic pain utilizing state-of-the-art laboratory tests and clinical assessments to tailor the best treatment plan for their condition.
Depending on the exact nature of a patient’s fibromyalgia, this treatment can include metabolic treatments to help suffering glands (detoxification, heavy metal chelation, enzyme therapy, hormonal therapy, etc.) or dietary methods that provide support to these weakened areas of the body.
Coinciding with other community events including New Patient Appreciation Day, Fibromyalgia Awareness Month is treated by Bay Clinic staff as a way to improve understanding of this disease and help sufferers begin to get help.
“Whether or not patients choose to pursue their road to health at our clinic, we want to reach out to make sure there’s no one suffering needlessly when help is out there. No one should have to live with chronic pain,” Dr. Salamay says.
