Know Before You Go

Taking to Your GP

According to a recent survey conducted by the  Osteopathic Association, many patients delay diagnosis and treatment because of a fear that they will be perceived as “faking” the disease.

Beyond this stigma, patients can relieve the symptoms of this condition with treatment and lead full lives. The first step is talking to a GP who can develop an individualised approach to managing your symptoms. With the support of a GP, as well as friends and family, you can live an active life with fibromyalgia.

Aerobic and strength training to improve physical fitness and function, reduce fibromyalgia symptoms, and improve quality of life.

  • aerobic training improves peak oxygen uptake and decreases pain intensity and fatigue
  • strength training reduces severity of fibromyalgia symptoms
  • aquatic exercise is associated with improvements in pain, HRQOL, physical function, muscle strength, emotional and mental health, and vitality
  • multidisciplinary programs (pool and land-based exercise and psycho educational sessions) improve tenderness severity  and lower body flexibility, but not physical fitness.
