Fibromyalgia symptoms are debilitating, and sufferers in Singapore often experience generalised body pain, fatigue and depression. On the other hand, patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are often misunderstood as lazy and are told that their lack of energy is caused by sleep disturbances and lack of exercise.

While there have been significant advancements in creating effective procedures and medications for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, patients may still feel hesitant to seek support due to the stigmas associated with such diagnoses. Unfortunately, this hesitation can prevent patients in Singapore from experiencing significant improvements in their health. Researchers recognise this issue and have conducted extensive studies to combat stigmas surrounding chronic conditions and create more accessible and successful solutions for patients.

With a firm belief that everyone deserves a chance at a full life, Vitality Chiropractic Centres aims to provide more helpful information about both these conditions, and how they can be managed. Read on to understand these chronic symptoms that affect many patients in Singapore.

Fibromyalgia is a debilitating condition that affects approximately 2% to 4% of the population in Singapore and all around the world. Common symptoms include muscle pain, fatigue, chronic insomnia, and depression. Despite its prevalence, it remains a misunderstood and poorly managed condition, typically managed by rheumatologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, or general practitioners. However, many Singapore patients are unaware that Upper Cervical Chiropractors can also help with this condition. 

At Vitality Chiropractic Centres, we have trained fibromyalgia specialists who specialise in Upper Cervical Chiropractic care. If you’re suffering from Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in Singapore, you can rest assured that we will provide you with a comprehensive plan that best meets your health goals.


Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that affects millions of people worldwide, including those in Singapore. Unfortunately, the exact cause of it is still unknown. However, there are various theories that suggest links between this condition and inflammation, stress, infection, physical trauma, and nervous system problems.

One of the challenges with this is that it is known as a ‘diagnosis of exclusion.’ This means that it can only be diagnosed after other serious conditions have been ruled out. These conditions may include arthritis, brain disease, depression, or infection. Despite the significant impact that it has on the lives of those who live with it, some medical professionals have even claimed that it does not exist because there is no satisfactory definition for the condition.

For those living with this condition in Singapore, getting an accurate diagnosis and immediate support can be a real challenge. From medication and physical therapy to lifestyle changes and alternative therapies, there are many options to explore. Fortunately, Vitality Chiropractic Centres offers effective procedures that can help individuals manage symptoms and find relief.

What are the common causes of the fibromyalgia disease


While the cause of Fibromyalgia remains uncertain, there have been some common triggers that cause flare-ups for sufferers in Singapore:

Your lifestyle choices, pre-existing conditions and injury may be some of the causes for your chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
If you’re struggling with Fibromyalgia, it’s important to seek advice and medical care from a professional to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. At Vitality Chiropractic Centres in Singapore, our team of qualified Chiropractors can help you with a comprehensive assessment and personalised plan.


When it comes to diagnosing Fibromyalgia in Singapore, there are a few signs to look at. The current protocol involves a pain-based assessment system that looks for persistent pain spread throughout the body, rather than just one focal point. In addition to the pain, general fatigue lasting for over three months is also considered a key symptom. Interestingly, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is also diagnosed in 90-100% of these cases.

The procedure usually involves a combination of medications such as painkillers, anti-seizure medication, and antidepressants. While estimates suggest that up to 40% of Singaporeans may experience significant improvement with these medications, very few are thought to fully recover. This can be discouraging for those living with the condition, as there is no established medical remedy for its symptoms.

Despite these challenges, there are still other therapies and lifestyle modifications that can be helpful in managing the disease. Occupational therapy, counselling, and exercises may be recommended to help manage symptoms and improve overall quality of life. However, even with these additional therapies, medicine currently provides improvements for less than 40% of the cases.

It is clear that more research is needed to fully understand the underlying causes of this condition and to develop more effective care. In the meantime, those living with it in Singapore and around the world will continue to rely on a combination of medical and non-medical therapies to relieve their symptoms.

If you are experiencing persistent pain and fatigue that may be related to this condition, our team of experienced professionals at Vitality Chiropractic Centres in Singapore can help you identify and manage its symptoms. We offer a range of diagnostic and care options that can be tailored to your specific needs, so take the first step towards a better life and contact us today.

Chronic pain, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia patients should seek medical diagnosis and treatment from their doctors early as these conditions then to become more severe over time


Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition affecting people all across the globe, including those in Singapore. While research has traditionally focused on rheumatologic and psychological factors, new hypotheses suggest that changes in muscle metabolism, including decreased blood flow, may cause overall weakness and fatigue. Other current research is exploring abnormalities in neurophysiology, which affect nerve function and regulation of neurotransmitters and hormones.

For many patients, traditional methods such as exercise, therapy, meditation, and dietary changes offer minimal improvement. However, there are alternative therapies that can provide effective relief from its symptoms. Chiropractors, for example, specialise in the nerve system and restoring balance to allow the body to heal efficiently without medication.

At Vitality Chiropractic Centres in Singapore, we offer individualised plans that take into account your unique needs and symptoms. Schedule a chiropractic Singapore consultation today and learn more about our holistic approach to Fibromyalgia care in Singapore.


In addition to this, another disorder that affects people in Singapore is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). CFS is characterised by extreme and persistent fatigue that lasts for at least six months and doesn’t improve with rest. CFS can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.

The symptoms of CFS can present in different ways, including unrefreshing sleep, difficulty concentrating, worsening memory, and feelings of dizziness. These symptoms can also make it challenging for individuals with CFS to complete everyday tasks, work, or even enjoy leisure activities.

At Vitality Chiropractic Centres in Singapore, we understand the impact that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can have on your life. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and let our expertise do wonders for you.

Chronic fatigue syndrome isn't just lack of sleep it is a medical condition that affects many people


In Singapore, just like in other parts of the world, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a perplexing disorder that can lower the quality of life of those who suffer from it. While the exact cause of CFS is not known, research suggests that some individuals may be born with a predisposition for this disorder. Certain factors such as viral infections, immune system problems, hormonal imbalances, and physical or emotional trauma may potentially trigger CFS in these individuals. The symptoms of CFS can be debilitating, so if you are experiencing these symptoms, it is essential to seek medical attention to get a proper diagnosis and support.


Are you struggling with either of these conditions in Singapore? Chiropractic care may be the solution you need, with its long history of helping patients manage and relieve the symptoms. Research shows that Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic care is especially effective in managing and relieving symptoms of both conditions. At Vitality Chiropractic, we offer Singapore’s only upper cervical specific centre, with extensive experience in helping patients using our unique NeuroPro method.

Our approach focuses on correcting biomechanical function at the occipital-atlantoaxial complex, also known as the upper cervical spine. By restoring balance to this area, we can reduce interference in nerve messages from the brain and allow the body to heal optimally and naturally without medication.
