What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a medical condition characterised by chronic widespread pain and a heightened pain response to pressure. Other symptoms include tiredness to a degree that normal activities are affected, sleep problems, and troubles with memory. Some people also report restless legs syndrome, bowel or bladder problems, numbness and tingling, and sensitivity to noise, lights or temperature. Fibromyalgia is frequently associated with depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
How can we help?
Treatment is aimed at reducing the severity of the muscular pain associated with fibromyalgia
We can use manual therapy techniques such as myofascial release and neuromuscular inhibition with medical acupuncture to help manage and ease muscular pain.
We are able to take a multi-displinary approach as we work in a multi therapy clinic in Cambridge with 66 practitioners to develop a treatment and management plan suitable for you and your individual needs.
Normally we would with work with your GP, psychologist, psychiatrist to reduce pain to more manageable intensity.The GP could prescribe antidepressants, anti-seizure and opiod based medication to manage the pain. whereas a psychological treatment can include cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), exercise and psychoeducation (specifically, sleep hygiene)
