The basics of fibromyalgia
After osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia is the most common musculoskeletal condition. It is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, and is characterized by widespread chronic pain. According to the Mayo Clinic, many researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Other common fibromyalgia symptoms include:
- Musculoskeletal pain and aching
- Disturbed sleeping patterns
- Chronic fatigue
- Numbness, tingling in the arms and/or legs
- Migraine headaches
- TMJ problems
- Bowel and bladder disturbances
- Heart Palpitations or rapid heart rate
- Brian fog
- Memory loss

Restore the normal balance of life forces in your body by allowing the acupuncture services of Northside Wellness Centre to help alleviate fibromyalgia pain. We use a very specialized electro laser acupuncture system which causes changes in blood flow and levels of neurotransmitters in the brain and spinal cord to help calm the mind, relax the body, and ease away physical pain.
We also use a very specialized nerve stimulator to create a somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) in the brain. This changes parasympathetic tone and helps to quiet the part of the brain that is over firing.
WE use a combination of Chinese medicine and proprietary nutritional products to detox the body and increase microcirculation.
Special tools are used to break down scar tissue, increase blood flow and sympathetic drainage as well as gently exercise the muscles without causing an exercise induced fibro-flare.
It is the combination of all of these different procedures that works to give effective pain relief and increased function.
Imagine… how great you would feel without your constant joint pain, stiffness and chronic fatigue.
Imagine… how easy your life would be if you could do the things that you love to do without pain and fatigue.
Imagine… how easy your life would be if you could just do all the things that you wanted to do… without feeling exhausted and miserable.

Real Patients, Real Success Stories
The trouble is, millions of people have been diagnosed with this “mysterious” condition…and the numbers seem to be on the rise. It seems these days, everybody has a variety of aches and pains, but medical tests show “nothing is wrong”. And when this happens, a lot of times someone is diagnosed with Fibromyalgia! Why? Because they don’t have any other diagnosis they can pin on you.
Most of the patients that show up at my office say their symptoms began gradually and eventually “snowballed” into more and more symptoms. They felt as though they were stuck in this vicious cycle of pain, fatigue, emotional stress and therefore they took and were prescribed … more drugs.
I know just how crippling fibromyalgia can be. I know how fibromyalgia can destroy your family. Destroy your career. Destroy your life. And I know how fibromyalgia can put a strangle hold on your life and squeeze your hopes and dreams – right out of you.
I help fibro patients, just like you…EVERY DAY. You see, a large part of my practice is devoted just to fibromyalgia treatment for patients. Devoted to cases other doctors have given up on. Devoted to cases other doctors have simply turned their backs on and told the patients to just learn to live with it, the best they could.
Patients like you are so important to me that I spend countless hours every month … treating fibromyalgia for pain and scouring the medical journals and research papers to find the very best and the very latest advances in fibromyalgia treatment.
