Fibromyalgia and Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an important component in the treatment process for fibromyalgia; it can help patients improve functioning and mobility, prevent further deterioration, and relieve pain. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, our licensed physical therapists work in conjunction with our Medical Director to create customized physical therapy programs for fibromyalgia patients.

Therapeutic exercise is a drug-free method for reducing the pain and inflammation that afflict fibromyalgia patients. Other physical therapy modalities for fibromyalgia may include:

• Ice and Heat Therapies;
• Deep Tissue massage;
• Ultrasound;
• Electrotherapy; and
• Low Level Laser Therapy.
