Painful disorders related to Fibromyalgia.
Pain associated with fibromyalgia appears to result from processes in the central nervous system. The condition is referred to as “central sensitization syndrome,” and is recognized as a disorder by the US National Institute of Health, and the American College of Rheumatology. There is no specific diagnostic test. Diagnosis involves first ruling out other possible causes and confirming that a set number of symptoms are present.
Characteristics of Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic widespread pain and heightened pain response to pressure. Other indicating symptoms include tiredness that affects normal activities, sleep problems, and memory issues. Some sufferers also report restless leg syndrome, sensitivity to noise, lights, and/or temperature, bowel or bladder problems, as well as numbness and tingling. Fibromyalgia is also commonly linked with depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
The cause of fibromyalgia is not identified; it is, however, commonly believed to involve a combination of environmental factors and genetic factors. There is thought to be a genetic link, as fibromyalgia tends to run in families. Environmental factors such as psychological stress and trauma and certain infections may be contributing factors as well.
There is, unfortunately, no universally accepted treatment or cure for fibromyalgia. Treatment typically entails symptom management, such as prescription medication, behavioral intervention, and exercise. Integrated treatment plans that incorporate medication, exercise, patient education, and cognitive-behavioral therapy have been shown to be effective in alleviating pain and other fibromyalgia-related symptoms in many.
Pain Relief with AtlasPROfilax
The suboccipital muscles are the small muscles at the base of the skull attached to the atlas, the first cervical vertebra. With a mal-rotation of the atlas, these muscles put stress on the myodural bridge and can cause a torque of the brain layers at the cranial spinal junction. This in turn can cause constant irritation of the spinal thalamic tract, which transmits pain signals to the body, resulting in chronic pain.
According to the National Fibromyalgia Research Association, most sufferers of Fibromyalgia display cervicomedullary (brainstem) or spinal cord compression. This can be due to a decreased range of motion in the upper cervical spine and/or poor posture. A misalignment in this area can disrupt the communication of pain signals by causing irritation to the spinal cord and brainstem.
AtlasPROfilax can reset the suboccipital muscles and pain receptors with a safe, one-time treatment.
Effectiveness of Treatment:
A study performed in 2017 looked at the management of 63 patients with fibromyalgia with the AtlasPROfilax treatment. 100% of the patients had a significant reduction of pain (a VAS rating of 8, dropping to 3 or 4) and 46% of patients had a reduction of wide-spread pain, as well as a reduction of fatigue, non-restorative sleep, and cognitive disorders typically associated with fibromyalgia.

It may not be the answer to every question about fibromyalgia, but it certainly checks a majority of the boxes and is one of the only treatments out there made specifically for the suboccipital muscles.
AtlasPROfilax may be the best available option for people suffering from fibromyalgia.
