Fibromyalgia Awareness Day
What is Fibromyalgia? It is a long-term condition that may include wide-spread pain; fatigue; muscle stiffness; poor sleep; brain fog; headaches and IBS which affects more women than men.
I was contacted this week to see if I could treat someone with fibromyalgia (FM). Yes, is the short answer. I’ve treated loads of patient who have diagnosed or suspected FM. It may be helpful to have osteopathic treatment for the muscular problems of FM, and indeed ME. Lots of people seek out an osteopath for treatment for this reason. Treatment is often best used alongside a whole-body approach. This may include optimising your diet, appropriate exercise and possible medication provided by your GP. You may also find CBT useful.
Book a consultation for osteopathy to see how it might help you. You will need to share a full case-history including important medical information. How you move and how you feel are also important. Treatments are gentle and tailored just for you.
