Fibromyalgia Treatment

Medical tests are often required to rule out other conditions before the diagnosis can be made. Patients with fibromyalgia or myofascial pain often have musculoskeletal problems that enhance their symptoms.

Lack of joint alignment along with muscle trigger points cause the the body to adopt abnormal movement patterns.

This demands more energy making it difficult to performing exercise. These joint and muscle problems must be addressed in order for muscles to function properly.

Once muscle and joint are moving with improved alignment, the patient should notice decreased effort with movement, less pain and greater energy because the body is not working as hard.
