Good news! Although it seems like this condition is incurable, this is not so. Fibromyalgia is potentially reversible! However, you will need a plan and it will take time. An important place to start is for you to develop a fibromyalgia exercise plan.
Understanding your condition is extremely important. You will find that you will live better with fibromyalgia when you take the time to become comfortable with the main aspects and anatomy of the condition. Do not be afraid of fibromyalgia. At first, the severity of pain is very scary and frustrating. However, it is very important that calmness prevails because anxiety will only make the pain and your sleep patterns worse. People do not usually die of fibromyalgia; they often only wish they did.
Fibromyalgia exercise can really do a lot to help you live better with the disease. Learn as much as you can about stretching, physiotherapy and other self-help therapies. If you are suffering from a chronic pain syndrome, do not test the limits of the condition by over-exercising or doing tasks that you know are going to cause you more pain later. Pace yourself and attempt to reduce injury and pain. Do, however, try to avoid being a couch potato. In fact, your condition can worsen if you shy away from activity.
Begin with a good, comprehensive stretching program like my movement therapy videos.
But remember – Going SLOW is the rule of the game. Learn to become aware of your limits. You will want to push yourself, because while you are moving it will begin to feel good. But you can damage your progress by pushing too hard. Be cognizant of how you feel during your stretching and movement; and keep track of how you feel several minutes after your stretching and movement exercise session.
Research physiotherapy professionals in your area and find out who is respected. Someone who has the time and patience to help a fibromyalgic is very important. Fibromyalgia exercise under the guidance of a skilled physiotherapist can help you gain flexibility, reduce stress, and just plain feel better.
Within the area of physiotherapy there are numerous tools such as “cold laser”, traditional ultrasound, and a new powerful focused ultrasound that can break muscle scarring. Manipulation, stretching and traction can be helpful but are often a little too painful for the fibromyalgic in the early stages of therapy. A skilled professional can help to create the program that you will most benefit from participating.
