A chronic condition that is often difficult to diagnose, characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in localized areas. Fibromyalgia affects almost 5 million people in the United States; 80% to 90% are women.

Potential treatments include:  There are 2 main types of physical therapy treatments: Passive treatments, such as massage, and active treatments, such as flexibility exercises. Both can help prevent painful fibromyalgia flare-ups.  Application of the Class IV Laser reduces inflammation and provides energy and advanced healing to target tissues; electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and vibration electric stimulation (Hivamat 200) therapy with passive motion ease pain and other fibromyalgia symptoms.
