Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is the term used to describe a condition involving idiopathic (unknown causation) diffuse muscle and joint pain and chronic fatigue. It is often the diagnosis given to a patient experiencing these symptoms when diagnostic tests like x-rays and blood tests are inconclusive. It is sometimes classified as a metabolic disorder and may be tied to rheumatism/ rheumatic disease. People who have a history of acute trauma can develop chronic pain, which may lead to fibromyalgia.

Treatment at our clinic for fibromyalgia may include light therapy, lymphatic massage.
