Some of the most common internet searches are for fibromyalgia, fibromyalgia symptoms, fibromyalgia treatment and fibromyalgia diet. This is a testament to the large number of people that suffer from this painful affliction today.
I am proud to say that as a chiropractor, I have been able to help many people in the Sacramento and Rancho Cordova areas live better lives as a result of the success that they have had with chiropractic care for relief of their fibromyalgia symptoms. And yes, I often help them with diet changes for fibromyalgia too!

No Longer Takes Twenty Medications Since Seeing Dr. Jeri!
When I was growing up, my mother was diagnosed with several conditions that greatly impacted her life and our family. I would see her in pain on a daily basis and there were days she was just so tired that she slept literally all day for days in a row. They say that when we grow up, we become our parents. This was my absolute worst fear. I never wanted to have to go through all that my mother has gone through in the last several years.
By September 2007, just days after I had turned 20 years old, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hypothyroidism and several other conditions. The diagnosis was the realization of my worst fears. I was always just so tired and it was having a huge affect on my life. I was seeing a Rheumatologist and spending large sums of money on medications and vitamin treatments. At one point, I was taking upwards of 20 medicines, vitamins and minerals. Though my doctor was very good and on the edge using new and alternative treatments, he was able to help some, but not enough.
After more than a year with this doctor he was becoming just too expensive. While I was better than I was at the time of my diagnosis, my conditions would still flare frequently. These flares would hit hard and affect my school work and my personal life. I was even pushed out of a job because of my symptoms and the complications that come with them.
During this past winter, I was having many of my usual cold weather symptoms. I decided to go to the Downtown Sacramento ice rink with friends even though I knew I would likely be in a lot of pain because of the cold and wouldn’t be able to skate anyway. A friend joined us apologizing because she was running late. She had been to her chiropractor before meeting us. She gave a couple of us in the group Dr. Jeri’s card. I had been thinking about seeing a chiropractor for a while. My brother is an athlete and sees a chiropractor regularly. He always feels better after visiting his chiropractor. My friend also told me that Dr. Jeri had worked wonders for her.
I held on to the card and thought about it for a couple of weeks. After having another really bad day, I knew I had to find something and someone else to help me. I made my first appointment and am so glad I did. Dr. Jeri has taken me from a terrible mess back to nearly how I was before my symptoms started – in just a couple of months! I am even off all the medications I was taking! I don’t know how I lived through two years of pain and fatigue. I am doing things I literally thought I would never do again. My roommates have also noticed and remarked upon the vast difference they have seen in me since I started seeing Dr. Jeri. My one roommate has lived with me since before my diagnosis and cannot believe the difference she sees in me these past couple months.
There is no way I can adequately thank Dr. Jeri and the staff at Capitol Chiropractic for what they have done for me, for giving me the life I should have back.
“Dr. Jeri Changed My Life”
“Dr. Jeri changed my life!! When I first came to Capital Chiropractic, I was suffering horribly with fibromyalgia, herniated disc, and at the time, I was six months pregnant. Before I started treatment with Dr. Jeri, my pain level averaged a 7, everyday; now, I average maybe a 2. I was taking pain medication everyday. Chiropractic has enabled me to go several days with little to no pain. I haven’t had a headache in months. I am forever grateful for being introduced to Dr. Jeri and her gift of chiropractic care. Thank you Dr. Jeri.”
No Longer Suffers From Fibromyalgia
“My doctor told me I would be in a wheelchair before long. I no longer suffer from Fibromyalgia.”
