Fibromyalgia and Massage

Posted on January 29, 2016 at 1:29 PM
Fibromyalgia and Massage by Carla Ward
 
 
Fibromyalgia is a chronic musculoskeletal pain disorder that is estimated to affect between 3% and 6% of the global population according to the National Fibromyalgia Association in April 2010. It generally affects more women than men in the 20 – 60 year old age bracket.
It has a variety of symptoms that can range from:
·         Pain, with the inclusion of 18 tender points
·         Numbness, and tingling in hands, arms, feet, and legs
·         Morning stiffness
·         Sleep problems
·         Anxiety / Fatigue – Chronic Fatigue can often go hand in hand with Fibromyalgia.
·         Concentration and memory problems -- known as "fibro fog"
·         Depression
·         Headaches
·         Irritable bowel syndrome
 
Research has shown that the role of regular massage in the treatment of Fibromyalgia can play a   positive role, with improving pain, anxiety, depression and quality of life in patients (Li et al, 2014) This may be due to the fact that massage provides some form of psychological relaxation and reduction in anxiety due to the slow, rhythmical and repetitive manner of the treatment. (Çinar & Eşer 2010)
 
Having treated patients with FMS, I also use heat therapy within the treatment, this has shown to have an effect the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in relation to stress. Heat relaxes the ANS so helping to reducing stress. (Lee et al, 2011)
 
Every FMS patient is different and I have found that the massage treatments will vary from patient to patient.  So I treat according to the individual and what their body requires at the time of treatment.

I don't have such problems. It's a pretty tough disorder as it seems. Might be a huge problem.

Basic pain management strategies include medication and massage. Massage is not just some mumbo jumbo that an enterprising soul concocted to promote their massage therapy services. Research supports the effectiveness of massage in relaxing the body and alleviating pain. Massage is not just a luxurious pampering that people get to manage stress. There is no doubt about its therapeutic value. Numerous studies have looked at therapeutic massage and its effect on pain in the back, hands, neck, and knees, among other areas. It has been proven to be effective in relaxing painful muscles, tendons, and joints. It is also effective in reliving stress and anxiety. Lastly, massage therapy could help in getting rid of pain by blocking pain messages to and from the brain.

For me, there is no better place for full body massage than Hartford Body Work, so I visit the place more often. It helps me to distress my body much easily.
