Fibromyalgia is a complex syndrome that can involve a wide variety of symptoms including chronic fatigue, general and/or specific pain, and difficulty sleeping. Comprehensive treatment is crucial for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia. This may involve lifestyle changes to reduce stress, fatigue, and depression, physical therapy, and/or medication.
How can physical therapy help?
Physical therapists may use a variety of techniques to help patients cope and take control of their fibromyalgia symptoms. Regular aerobic exercise and gentle movement therapy have been shown to be effective in treatment of the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Physical therapists may also use manual therapies to reduce pain, muscular tension and trigger points.
