Holistic Manual Therapies for Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is an illness caused by borrelia bacteria. Humans usually get Lyme disease from the bite of a tick carrying the bacteria. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left
untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. Lyme disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks. Laboratory testing is helpful if used correctly
and performed with validated methods. Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with a few weeks of antibiotics.

Without treatment, Lyme disease can get worse. The symptoms often show up within 3 to 10 weeks after a tick bite. Stage 2 is often more serious and widespread. It is called early disseminated disease. Some people with Lyme disease report symptoms that continue after treatment. These longer-lasting symptoms may include:

  • Arthritis that begins with Lyme disease and doesn’t improve
  • Body aches and pains
  • Constant or frequent tiredness
  • Memory complaints
