Physiotherapy treatment for Fibromyalgia

Physiotherapy treatment for Fibromyalgia

All patients with fibromyalgia benefit from assessment by a specialist physiotherapist.

Your muscle pain and stiffness can be reduced by physiotherapy. This is achieved with a combination of exercises, pain management strategies, manual techniques, hydrotherapy and electrotherapy. Your physiotherapist will also concentrate on education and advice in treatment sessions. Topics covered include education on posture, workstation, medication, relaxation, pacing and diet.

Benefits of physiotherapy for patients with fibromyalgia are:

  • reduced pain
  • reduced muscle spasm
  • reduced stiffness
  • increased energy levels
  • increased quality of sleep
  • increased feeling of wellbeing
  • increased ability to manage pain

Our specialist physiotherapists will liaise with other medical practitioners, such as your GP or rheumatologist regarding your condition. In this way medical and physical treatment will compliment each other to gain the best possible outcome.
