  • Fibromyalgia exercise is one of the most conservative medical treatment options for this debilitating condition. seems like a strange treatment for a chronic pain disease, but has been very effective at helping to control the symptoms in many fibromyalgia patients.

    Water aerobics are really great for older aged adults who are trying to find an exercise program that really works and so this would be one type of exercise program that you would definitely want to include in your fibromyalgia exercise program.

  • July 25, 2002 -- Take two laps and call me in the morning. That's the message of a new study that shows people with can reduce their own pain and discomfort by following a regular routine. is a common and debilitating condition that affects about 1% of the population, mostly women. The medical cause of the severe muscle and associated with the condition is unknown. And many sufferers are unable to improve with current treatments such as pain , anti-inflammatory drugs, and . But a new study in the July 27 issue of the found that regular can produce substantial improvements in how patients feel. Although previous studies have also found benefits from patients, researchers say those findings are hard to apply to general practice because the exercise sessions were conducted in hospitals under the supervision of trained health professionals. Those studies also lacked long-term follow up. But in this study, the authors compared the effects of a simple-to-follow, community-based on a group of 132 people with who were attending a rheumatology clinic in London. The patients were randomly divided into two groups that met in hour-long classes twice a week for 12 weeks. One group received exercise therapy from a personal trainer with no special training in working with fibromyalgia patients. And the other group received relaxation and muscle flexibility training. After three months of following a individualized , which consisted primarily of walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bicycle, researchers found 35% of the patients said they felt much or very much better. In comparison, only about half as many patients in the relaxation group reported similar improvements. And those beneficial effects were long lasting. One year later, fewer patients in the fibromyalgia exercise group still met the clinical criteria for having the condition (31 in the exercise group compared with 44 in the in the relaxation group). People in the exercise group also had bigger reductions in muscle and joint tenderness and said fibromyalgia was having less of a negative impact on their daily life. Study author Selwyn C. M. Richards of Poole Hospital in Dorset, England, and colleagues say their findings show that "prescribed aerobic activity is a simple, cheap, and potentially widely available treatment for fibromyalgia."

    Yes, exercise for fibromyalgia does take some work. But it does not require an hour a day, 5 days a week. We are all busy. Fibromyalgia exercises can be done in just 20 minutes a day.

    If you suffer from fibromyalgia, a chiropractic spinal check up is one of the best things you can do. Chiropractic's safe, gentle methods have helped millions of headache sufferers over the years. Doctors of chiropractic free your body from the vertebral subluxation complex that has the power to destroy your health. When freed of subluxations, your body works more efficiently to use its natural energies to heal itself.

    These exercises were recommended by Dr. Needham for fibromyalgia sufferers. See a personal trainer or ask your doctor before attempting these stretches.

    Some will sell their dreams for small desires
    Or lose the race to rats
    Get caught in ticking traps
    And start to dream of somewhere
    To relax their restless flight
