The effectiveness of chiropractic management of fibromyalgia patients: a pilot study.

Researchers wanted to demonstrate the effectiveness of chiropractic management for fibromyalgia patients using reported pain levels, cervical and lumbar ranges of motion, strength, flexibility, tender points, and perceived functional ability.

Twenty-one rheumatology patients (25-70 yr) took part in a randomized control study. Treatment consisted of 4 wk of spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy and passive stretching at the chiropractors' discretion. As a baseline, chiropractic management was withheld for 4 wk with continuation of prescribed medication.

Chiropractic management improved patients' cervical and lumbar ranges of motion, straight leg raise and reported pain levels. These changes were judged to be clinically important within the confines of the sample only. The researchers conclude that further study with a patient size of 81 is recommended to determine if these findings are generalizable to the target population of fibromyalgia sufferers.
