Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Fibromyalgia Syndrome is a chronic, whole body condition that can affect all muscles, resulting in pain, stiffness, weakness, and/or spasms, anywhere in the body. Derived from the Latin, Fibro-, meaning “fibrous tissues,” and the Greek, Myo- and Algos-, meaning “muscle” and “pain,” the literal definition of Fibromyalgia is “muscle and connective tissue pain.”  Yet because Fibromyalgia symptoms can often go beyond muscle pain, and involve debilitating fatigue, sleep disturbance, bowel and bladder abnormalities, cognitive dysfunctions, and anxiety and depression, Fibromyalgia has come to be known as a Syndrome.


The location of the 18 Tender Points of Fibromyalgia

NeuroMuscular Therapy can be helpful in treating Fibromyalgia between flare-ups in areas where there is deep, chronic tension and Trigger Points.  Because these areas can occur anywhere in the body, NeuroMuscular Therapy is especially useful in locating and releasing these Trigger Points, relaxing the associated muscles and eliminating pain, stiffness, weakness and/or spasms, thus improving flexibility, strength, balance, and circulation throughout the body.
