A Seminar On Fibromyalgia
Today, my wife, Irene, and I attended a seminar on Fibromyalgia.
The person giving the seminar (Dr. Whitcomb) is a chiropractor and not a doctor.
Fibromyalgia is a disease/condition of many symptoms that affects the nervous system in strange and painful ways. Lack of sleep, pains in different areas of the body and chronic fatique are a few of these symptoms.
Dr. Whitcomb and has had some success in treating this condition with chiropractic techiques in this office in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Three patients gave moving accounts of their condition before and after their treatment.
Dr. Whitcomb has written a book on the subject which I'm reading right now.
His treatments are on the expensive side ($7000 and up) which include hotel room and food. However, he certainly provides hope for people with this awful disease. Most doctors dismiss fibromyalgia patients as hypochondriacs.
More doctors and chiropractors should learn Dr. Whitcomb's techniques. Treatments should be cheaper and covered by public or private health insurance.
