Fibromyalgia isn't just 1 condition; it's a complex syndrome involving many different signs and symptoms

  • Widespread pain, often a dull achiness, on both sides of the body above and below the waist.
  • Spots on your head, neck, chest, shoulders, elbows, hips, or knees that are tender to a firm touch; these "tender points" may move around or come and go.
  • Muscle stiffness, especially in the morning.
  • Thinking and memory problems
  • Pain or cramps in the abdomen or pelvis.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Irritable bladder syndrome.
  • Difficulty sleeping; waking unrefreshed.
  • Temporomandibular (jaw joint) pain.
  • Numbness or tingling.
  • Often, stress can make your symptoms worse.

Although there is no definitive cure at this time, there are treatments that can help. Your physical therapist can help you:

  • Understand and manage your pain.
  • Reduce your fatigue.
  • Improve your function and quality of life.

following treatments can decrease pain and improve function, general health, and sleep in people with fibromyalgia:

  • Aerobic conditioning.
  • Aquatic exercise.
  • Strengthening exercise:- core stability, muscle flexibility and strengthening
  • Deep breathing.
  • Recreational activities.
  • Manual therapy.
  • Deep tissue release:- deep tissue release is an ideal fibromyalgia treatment because it uses a great deal of pressure to relieve deep muscle tension and spasms. 
  • Heat Therapy: Heat therapy is one of the most preferred methods of reducing chronic aches and pains associated with fibromyalgia
