Functional Medicine and Fibromyalgia
See how Dr Vaibhav Patel can help
If you're one of the 5 million Americans who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you're no stranger to pain. Between the morning stiffness, chronic muscle aches, an reoccurring headaches, your days and nights can feel pretty long.
Add that to the difficulty thinking (often referred to as "fibro-fog"), being chronically tired, and dealing with numbness issues and it's completely understandable that you'd go in search of relief—relief that can often be found via functional medicine treatment methods focused on treating the underlying issue rather than just the symptoms.
Dr. Vaibhav Patel sees a lot of fibromyalgia patients Nashville and surrounding counties and with his functional medicine center has helped many people get their lives back from chronic pain.
For instance, because lack of sleep can negatively impact fibromyalgia sufferers, some people rely on sleep medications to get the recommended amount of rest. However, the National Sleep Foundation suggests that you adopt some type of regular sleep schedule instead to prevent aggravation of this condition further.
Although the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, there are many things you can do to help ease this condition. When you first see Dr. Vaibhav Patel , we'll do a complete and thorough exam to get to the root of your fibromyalgia pain. After we get a better picture of what's happening, we'll develop a treatment plan together that will restore the natural function of your body.
Imagine you being able to do all the things you used to or wanted to without constantly being in pain.
