Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that presents with unexplained pain and overall exhaustion. If you suffer from the symptoms of fibromyalgia, you know how debilitating it can be, affecting your ability to function at work and at home.

It is also often misunderstood or dismissed, adding more difficulties to the physical symptoms. Fibromyalgia is “one of the most common chronic pain conditions”, according to the National Fibromyalgia Association, and “affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6% of the world population.” It most often affects women, but does occur in a small population of men and children.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia produces a variety of symptoms, the most common being pain.

Patients describe the pain as present throughout the whole body that varies from a dull ache to a sharp, throbbing pain. It may also feel like firm knots in the belly of muscles, often causing restricted movement and radiating pain. Some also report that their muscles feel like they have been pulled or overworked, and the skin may feel badly sunburned.

These symptoms can be unpredictable and most patients are frustrated by their physical limitations.

The inability to carry out even common tasks, perform at a job, participate in their children’s activities, and enjoy hobbies and social activities all result from suffering from fibromyalgia.

Getting exercise is difficult, if not impossible, and exacerbates the symptoms, causing the body to become weaker and more prone to injury.

In addition, the chronic pain that causes poor sleep and physical limitation often leads to anxiety and depression.

The symptoms of fibromyalgia can include the following:

  • Widespread pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain
  • Ligament and tendon pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Overall achiness
  • Brain fog also called “Fibro fog”
  • Restricted movement/stiffness
  • Numbness and tingling in the hands, arms, feet, and legs
  • Tender points all over the body
  • A feeling of heaviness in the body as though weighed down by cement

How We Treat Fibromyalgia

We believe that discovering and treating the underlying cause for the condition is the ideal solution. Often the pain of fibromyalgia is due to an infection or toxin affecting the energy producing areas of the tissues. These little energy manufacturing plants are called mitochondria. We also commonly find that the thyroid gland is not working up to par and that by nutritionally supporting the gland, we can get people feeling better very fast.

But fibromyalgia is often a multifactorial issue rather than a single issue and can differ from person to person. For this reason all patient programs are individualized based on what is needed. We have successfully treated many patients by discovering the unique, underlying causes related to their condition.

Why We’re Different

Unlike most doctors we are not looking for “quick-fix” symptom suppression that allows the underlying condition to fester and manifest into more serious health conditions.

Sometimes short term pain relief is required of course but our singular mission is to rehabilitate the body back to a state of health and well being.

We can’t promise that we do it every time, but you will find no office that works harder to help you regain your health and energy so you can live a pain free life.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
