Fibromyalgia

The Mayo Clinic states, “Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.”

 

Fibromyalgia is a life long struggle of trying to find a balance that helps you manage the pain. Some people with fibromyalgia live practically symptom free with the right combination and only have a few flare ups a year. Massage therapy is one of the most highly recommended treatments for fibromyalgia management. It does this be decreasing stress as well as lowering heart rate and increasing relaxation. Many people with fibro also experience muscle spasms, and massage therapy can definitely decrease the frequency, intensity, and duration of muscle spasms. The Mayo Clinic also talks about a few other alternative therapies to help manage fibro.
