Fibromyalgia Treatment in Schaumburg, IL
“We accept all insurances except HMOs, Humana, State Sponsored, or Public Aid”Pain Therapy Associates are experts in the treatment of fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a condition of widespread pain and tenderness throughout the body. It is often accompanied by sleep problems and intense fatigue. At Pain Therapy Associates, we believe that fibromyalgia is a central nervous hypersensitivity disorder. We believe that fibromyalgia patients feel and experience pain to a much greater degree than normal people experience because they have too much of a neurotransmitter known as substance P.
Nerve cells communicate with one another through neurotransmitters. Substance P is one such neurotransmitter. It is a protein found in the brain and spinal cord and is associated with some inflammatory processes in the joints. Its function is to cause pain. Most fibromyalgia patients also don’t know that “trigger points” can be a big part of their pain problem. They don’t know that treating the trigger points, or knotted muscles, can significantly decrease the pain associated with fibromyalgia and significantly improve function in daily activities.
Many doctors and patients see fibromyalgia as a “final diagnosis” of a poorly treatable, permanent, incurable disease. The doctors at Pain Therapy Associates consider the fibromyalgia diagnosis a starting point in their search for solutions that will decrease pain and improve function. They see fibromyalgia as the starting point of your journey back to a better life, instead of a life sentence of pain, frustration and dysfunction. They’re committed to helping you overcome pain and regain your life.
