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.
Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.
We have developed a specialized treatment protocol to address all of the limiting and painful symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Every patient will undergo a thorough evaluation to identify regions of pain, symptoms and functional limitation.
Once symptoms and limitations are identified we provide patient education on how to interpret pain signals and manage symptoms through a customized exercise program. We use aquatic therapy to reduce stress on the body and allowing movement with less pain. We also perform special manual techniques to reduce pain, muscle tightness and joint restriction.
These highly effective pain relieving techniques include:
- Dry Needling
- Myofacial Release
- Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization
- Joint Mobilization
- Manual stretching
- Laser Therapy
- Electrical Stimulation
- Kinesio Taping
