Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2008
Gil Kajiki, DC, a board-certified chiropractor who has been treating patients in the Los Angeles area for more than twenty years, is part of an elite group of physicians able to test and treat patients for neurological fibromyalgia, a painful and often debilitating disease. On Tuesday, June 24, Dr. Kajiki will lead a seminar at Whole Foods Market in Porter Ranch, just outside of Los Angeles, where he will discuss this emerging medical break-through and answer questions about treatment for neurological fibromyalgia.
"Fibromyalgia is a condition in which a patient's body actually attacks its own connective tissue. The result is that pain that starts in one region, such as the neck and shoulders, spreads to other areas over a period of time, leading to an expansive list of real and life-altering ailments. Patients who were once labeled as hypochondriacs and given expensive prescription medications to numb the pain are excited to finally receive lasting relief without drugs at our clinic," says Dr. Kajiki.
People with fibromyalgia may experience moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased endurance, pain, or even the kind of exhaustion frequently associated with the flu or a lack of sleep. Muscular or tension headaches, migraine headaches, abdominal pain, bloating, bladder spasms, and sensitivity to temperature changes as a result of skin and blood circulation are just some of the symptoms patients face.
Patients develop fibromyalgia as a result of a physical, chemical or emotional trauma that triggers the body to release an abundance of cortizol that ultimately disrupts the lower and upper brain stem connection, prompting Type-C brain fibers to become overexcited. "Treatment includes a holistic approach to testing, diagnosing and bringing the brain and nervous system back to balance through a combination of therapies that do not involve pain-masking pills, potions, or expensive prescription medications," says Dr. Kajiki. "Our goal is to work with patients to help them return to functioning in their daily lives without feeling dependent on drugs to relieve their pain and other symptoms," he says.
Dr. Kajiki is one of only 200 chiropractors in the U.S., and the only physician in the San Fernando Valley, trained in a new treatment technique to treat neurological fibromyalgia without prescription medication.
MEDIA NOTE: Today, more than 6 million Americans suffer from fibromyalgia. Conventional treatments using traditional western medical treatments have shown limited success, leaving many patients unable to function efficiently at home or work. A new, holistic treatment technique is changing that. Dr. Gil Kajiki schedules time by appointment to demonstrate the therapies used to test and treat patients with neurological fibromyalgia to journalists seeking background information for medical features. Get your questions answered by attending his seminar June 24, 2008 at Whole Foods Market, 19340 Rinaldi Street, Porter Ranch, Calif., 91326.
