Bend Fibromyalgia Center
So I have fibromyalgia…………now what??
It is estimated that 3 to 6 million people suffer from fibromyalgia with that number increasing every year. It is also more prevalent in women. Fibromyalgia is a very broad and general term used to describe pain throughout the body, joint pain and in other soft tissues. Nearly every person that I have treated with fibromyalgia has seen multiple doctors and clinicians with little if any relief.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
The answer to this question is rather simple. We approach it in a completely different way. That is….. we treat the person NOT the diagnosis. You see, there can be many different causes for your pain and other symptoms and if you don’t find out what the exact cause is, it will never go away.
The only way to help someone is to identify the cause.
HOW DO YOU IDENTIFY THE CAUSE?
This is where many doctors and clinicians get stuck. They cant seem to identify the cause. The only way to identify the cause is to:
- ask the right questions and
- run the right tests
Ask yourself these questions:
- How has your chronic health condition affected your job, relationships, finances, family, or other activities?
- What has it cost you in time, money, happiness, sleep?
- Where do you picture yourself in the next one to three years if this problem is not taken care of soon?
- What is it worth to you if we could improve your condition?
If you’re really serious about the possibility that there could be an alternative treatment for you or your loved one, call our office at 541-389-3072 and tell the staff person that you are interested in setting up a case review with Dr. Tim Lind, D.C.
