DISCOVER RELIEF FOR FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS

ARE YOU READY TO RECLAIM YOUR LIFE FROM FIBROMYALGIA?

Are you uncertain whether you’ve been living with fibromyalgia? Sometimes, it’s challenging to determine, as symptoms can vary. Occasional pain is normal, whether from overexertion during exercise or a minor accident. Most of the time, such discomfort can be shrugged off or relieved with over-the-counter pain relief.

However, when you suffer from widespread and persistent pain that resists all efforts to alleviate it, this may indicate a more serious condition – fibromyalgia. If chronic pain, accompanied by fatigue, mood swings, or disrupted sleep patterns, is part of your daily life, you may be dealing with fibromyalgia. If this sounds familiar, reach out to Healthy Life Physio & Wellness Scarborough to schedule an appointment with one of our Scarborough, ON physiotherapists. We can help provide relief for your fibromyalgia.

PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR FIBROMYALGIA RELIEF

At Healthy Life Physio & Wellness Scarborough, we offer effective treatments aimed at managing fibromyalgia symptoms in the long term while restoring optimal body function. Fibromyalgia is not a disease but a constellation of symptoms, which means there’s no universal treatment. Our Scarborough, ON physiotherapists will assess your physical abilities, review your medical history, and discuss your present symptoms to create a customized treatment plan that suits your specific needs.

Primary care physicians often prescribe pain medication or antidepressants to manage symptoms. However, these medications do not address the chronic, debilitating nature of the condition or the loss of function commonly experienced with chronic pain and distress.

Our physiotherapy treatments typically begin with pain-relieving modalities to deliver comfort and promote healing. These may include trigger point therapy, massage, stretching, electrical stimulation, or other therapeutic techniques recommended by our physiotherapist. Subsequently, your treatment plan will transition to active therapies involving muscle strengthening, range-of-motion exercises, and cardiovascular activities.

SO, WHAT EXACTLY IS FIBROMYALGIA?

While the exact cause of fibromyalgia remains uncertain, some medical experts speculate it may be linked to an overactive sympathetic nervous system, responsible for “fight or flight” responses. This theory aligns with the observation that individuals often develop fibromyalgia symptoms following a traumatic physical or emotional event, although it lacks scientific proof.

Fibromyalgia serves as an umbrella term for those experiencing a particular combination of symptoms. For some, chronic stress or depression may precede other symptoms. It also disproportionately affects women, with an increased risk if you have a family member with the condition. Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Nausea
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness or disorientation
  • Disrupted sleep patterns
  • Sensitivity to touch or numbness
  • Chronic and sharp muscle pains
  • Tender body areas
  • Fatigue
