Treatment for Fibromyalgia

A Hands On Approach

Treatment for fibromyalgia requires an open mind, patience, and a personal commitment. Many of the options available today work for some people, but may not work for others. Having more than one option can tremendously increase your chances of finding the right solution.

It's not an easy journey as some of you may already know, but once you find the right combination it will become abundantly clear that you've hit your target.

Many people use a combination of manual treatment options for fibromyalgia pain relief, but you may find that just one program can significantly reduce your symptoms and increase your mobility. These options include some type of physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and fibromyalgia massage.

The Right Foundation

The road to recovery not only requires the right treatment, but it demands a deep understanding from doctors, friends, and loved ones. It's extremely difficult to describe to others the complex physical and emotional burdens this illness can cause, but help and support from these individuals can make a world of difference.

You may find that you don't respond well to some of these treatments because of your limited mobility and sensitivity to pain. Do not let this discourage you. Many people I know including myself have all found comparable solutions. Our success is a testament to the effectiveness of these different options, so you just have to ease your way into them to find the right one.

It's very important to get a clear understanding of what each treatment option requires. Make sure to communicate with specialists in these areas whether you are sensitive to sudden or aggressive movements. They'll be able to slowly introduce you to each element of their practice which will allow you to decide whether you would like to continue treatment.

I feel strongly that some form of hands on therapy is one of the key ingredients in the treatment for fibromyalgia. It not only helps relieve muscle pain and stiffness, but can offer a very relaxing and therapeutic experience. This in turn can help reduce stress and anxiety levels which are known to contribute to fibromyalgia flare-ups.
