I’m a chiropractor in Freehold, NJ and have helped many patients in Freehold, Marlboro, Manalapan, Howell, Colts Neck, Jackson and other neighboring towns of Monmouth County who suffer with Fibromyalgia.
If you’re like many other patients with fibromyalgia, you’ve had a rough road in life up until now. There may have been times when your family and friends didn’t understand how you were feeling and why you couldn’t keep up with the normal pace for housework chores and personal responsibilities. It’s been frustrating.
There were, no doubt, times when you turned down invitations because you weren’t up to all the walking, hiking, shopping, and camping that everyone expected you to do. After all, you know your body’s limitations; knowing that pain and fatigue would follow a seemingly fun excursion to the mall or camping trip was enough negative reinforcement to say no to these types of activities.
You probably have spent time and money on doctor hopping, with little solutions and another bag full of prescription medication that worries you when you think about side effects.
There were probably many nights when you did not get enough sleep, and then many days when you could barely get out of bed in the morning or experience chronic fatigue and restless leg syndrome. Your days may have included hours of feeling sad and depressed, experiencing brain fog where you didn’t think clearly, and pain and tenderness almost everywhere in your body. Greeting the new day didn’t seem too exciting during those times and may have almost seemed like you were the main character in the movie, Ground Hog Day, reliving the same day over and over again!
Things change when you get a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and use an alternative health practitioner who considers the whole body and uses natural methods to help you get well.
Your friends and family will start to believe that you haven’t been making up symptoms all along. After all, you were never a hypochondriac! Why couldn’t they believe in you before? The good news is that they believe you now and still want to help you as much as possible. They want to experience you – the whole you – and your total personality back in full force and have wanted to do so for a long time, since the start of your illness. Your family and friends love you and will feel relieved that now there is a strategy that can produce results. They feel grateful that someone finally discovered the reason behind how bad you’ve been feeling for so long and has a plan that works to bring out the real you again.
My name is Dr. Russell Brokstein, chiropractor in Freehold, NJ and I believe there is an innate intelligence that can be followed and will result in the fastest improvement. Your chiropractic care can only help you facilitate a faster recovery. Chiropractic manipulations of the spine are valuable because they restore the impulses in the nervous system in locations where there was a disruption before. One of the findings of research scientists is that there has been a head trauma that may be responsible for the disorder.
It’s As If Your Brain Cries Out, “Yippee!”
Once the brain and nervous system start feeling the restoration of the impulses in areas where there was a disruption before, the nervous system practically cries out in joy!
If your nerve cells could talk, they would say, ‘I’m alive again! I’m not like a dim bulb that puts out very little light anymore. See how much I shine! Tell everyone I’m back again and life is going to be great!’ After each chiropractic adjustment, there’s a little more hope, a little more brightness in life, and a little more vitality in each part of the body.
