My rheumatologist suggested that I might have some luck dealing with chronic pain by going to a chiropractor because I don't like to take a lot of painkillers. I don't know much at all about chiropractors. What kinds of questions should I ask on the phone if I want to find a good one? What should I look for at an appointment? How oftn do people usually go? I can't have massages anymore because they seem to set off my fibromyalgia. A chiropractic adjustment is different from a massage, I'm assuming? Sorry for the stupid questions, but I really do want to learn.
Maintaining mental positivity is a also key to reducing the inflammation response because it reduces the release of the "stress" hormone cortisol. Cortisol levels are usually highest in the morning when you also tend to be more stiff, swollen. See the connection? Read more about cortisol from this About.com page:
