Physical Therapy for Fibromyalgia
By Western Berks on March 21st, 2016
Many people with fibromyalgia avoid exercise because of their painful symptoms but that’s where physical therapy for fibromyalgia can help. A physical therapist can help you learn to interpret your pain signals, and develop an aerobic routine that works for your lifestyle and your physical limitations.
Pain and fatigue are the most common symptoms of fibromyalgia, a condition that effects more than 5 million people in the United States (most of them women). One of the things that can be helpful for those dealing with fibromyalgia is an aerobic exercise routine.
Our physical therapy team won’t just write down a bunch of exercises and send you on your way. They’ll work closely with you to help you learn to pace yourself, listen to your body, and take control of the pain. They will also help you set realistic goals, taking into account that some days your pain may be too much to allow you to do much exercise. They’ll also be a source of support, cheering you on when you get frustrated with your symptoms. You’ll love the support you get from them, in and out of the office!
