Successful Resolution of Fibromyalgia, Spinal Fixations and Overweight
A female patient, age 50, came for treatment in spring 2009. She had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (MD identified 20 tender points). She also suffered from being overweight as well as spinal fixations (total body pain level at about 8 out of 10).

Dr. Carter applied a combined treatment program (3 months, one session per week) composed of chiropractic adjustments (resolution of spinal fixations), herbal remedies (liquid herbal intake formulas to treat fibromyalgia), nutritional therapy (modified food elimination diet to remove glutens and dairy), detoxification and supplements (e.g. antioxidants, vitamins).
Upon completion the pain level had been diminished by 80-90% (1 out of 10 per patientís assessment). The chronic pain component had been completely removed. Her muscles regained strength and flexibility (much softer than before). The fibromyalgia had been totally resolved. The patient returned to normal weight (lost 35 lbs). She has more energy, the fatigue is gone. She does one preventative treatment per month if needed.
