Moweaqua, IL, July 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- According to studies, 5 million American’s suffer from an elusive health problem known as Fibromyalgia. Stranger still, it seems to mainly affect females between the ages of 40-55 years old, and until recently many doctors were at a loss as to how to successfully treat fibromyalgia.
Dr. Brian McGregor, owner of Moweaqua Accident & Injury Center, specializes in the neurological side of treatment, has been using a new approach that is producing results where previously all else has failed, and in the process has been making some waves in the local medical community.
"Most of my fibromyalgia patients came to me incredibly frustrated, because their previous 3 or 4 doctors said their symptoms were a figment of their imaginations,” says Dr. McGregor. "Fibromyalgia is one of the most elusive health problems because the typical sufferer might feel pain in the left leg today, then pain in their right shoulder tomorrow, and then mid-back pain and a headache the next day. And their pain is coupled with massive fatigue – the sort of tiredness we all experience when we’ve got a bad flu. Only these people feel like this every day, and often have difficulty sleeping at night, which makes the problem worse.”
Dr. McGregor goes on to state, “Sadly, the medical community is generally at a loss as to how to treat these cases. Drugs are tried. Sometimes a nutritionist is hired. Sometimes even a psychologist is used. However, as any fibromyalgia sufferer will tell you, it really isn’t 'only in their head.' To them the daily pain and fatigue is real. Over the years I saw more of these cases arriving, and I decided to do something about it. That’s when I started using a new neurological approach to treatment that uses both sides of the brain, to stimulate the nervous system in such a way so as to correct many of their symptoms. The results have surpassed even my own expectations!”
Because his treatment has been so well received, Dr. McGregor offers fibromyalgia sufferers a free first visit so that he may explain his unique approach to prospective patients.
"This way they can make an informed decision, and it doesn't cost them anything to find out whether chiropractic is right for them."
