Physical therapy can be an effective treatment option for your fibromyalgia.
Here are some of our suggestions:
- Managing your pain: Our Physical Therapists can teach you exercises that help alleviate your pain and stiffness in the affected areas. They also use manual therapy techniques such as massage and trigger point release to reduce your pain and discomfort. We have seen pain in all parts of the body, but mostly, back, neck, and major muscles like legs and arms.
- Flexibility and range of motion: Fibromyalgia can cause stiffness and reduced range of motion in joints and muscles. Our Physical therapists can develop a stretching program to help you increase flexibility and range of motion.
- Strength training: Strength training can help improve muscle tone and overall function. Our Physical therapists can design a program that is tailored to your individual needs and abilities.
- Aerobic exercise: Low-impact aerobic exercise such as walking, swimming, or cycling can help improve cardiovascular fitness and reduce pain.
- Posture and body mechanics: Our Physical therapists can teach you proper body mechanics and posture to help reduce pain and improve overall function.
It’s important to work with a physical therapist who has experience treating fibromyalgia. We have the best therapist who have studied and treated thousands of patients with fibromyalgia successfully. They can develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs and symptoms. In addition to physical therapy, other treatment options such as medication, counseling, and lifestyle changes may also be recommended.

In addition to physical therapy, there are other things you can do to manage your fibromyalgia pain. Here are some suggestions:
- Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can help reduce pain and improve function. However, it’s important to start slowly and gradually increase the intensity and duration of exercise. Consult with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
- Practice relaxation techniques: Stress can exacerbate fibromyalgia symptoms. Practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, and yoga can help reduce stress and promote relaxation.
- Get enough sleep: Getting adequate sleep is important for managing fibromyalgia symptoms. Establish a regular sleep routine and practice good sleep hygiene habits such as avoiding caffeine and electronics before bedtime.
- Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains can help reduce inflammation and improve overall health.
- Try complementary therapies: Some people with fibromyalgia find relief from complementary therapies such as acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic care.
- Consider medication: Medications such as pain relievers, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants may be prescribed to help manage fibromyalgia symptoms. Talk to your healthcare provider about which medications may be right for you.
