Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a disease characterized by generalized, diffuse, often migratory musculoskeletal pain and increased sensitivity to a variety of stimuli that can cause pain and discomfort, such as effort, stress or noise. It affects about 2-4% of adults, and is more frequent in women.

 

 

You may have periods of calm or exacerbation, and the pain and discomfort may fluctuate. It is often accompanied by fatigue, altered sleep, memory problems and concentration.

 

 

The origin and cause of fibromyalgia are not very clear. It is thought that there is an increase in sensitivity to pain, due to changes in neurotransmitters and pain processing, both in the peripheral and central nervous systems, which leads to situations of hypersensitivity to external stimuli. Psychological stress (worry, anxiety) favours this mechanism, and also increases the tension that is transmitted to the muscles, increasing pain.
 

Objectives of a rehabilitation program:

  • Improving mobility and joint movement

  • Relief from pain and inflammation

  • Reduced anxiety, improved sleep

  • General physical reconditioning

  • Teaching and counselling of support products (orthotics, splints, etc.)

  • Return to work activities , daily life and sports activities
