Q: I have fibromyalgia, can Physical Therapy help?

February 19, 2016

A: Absolutely! We begin by using a combination of hands-on techniques to decrease the painful trigger points. Then we add gentle range of motion (ROM) for mobility and exercises to improve strength. Fibromyalgia affects more women than men (9:1) and is usually associated with pain, fatigue, stiffness, cloudy thinking and difficulty sleeping.
