Multi-Disciplinary Rehabilitation and Pain Management for Fibromyalgia is offered in our Monmouth County Medical Office in order to eliminate the stress of finding help for this often elusive and hard-to-treat condition. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, we provide real solutions for fibromyalgia, and make it possible for patients to visit their doctor, physical therapist, acupuncturist, and chiropractor in one location.
For most people, muscle pain is a common and transitory sensation of inflammation and soreness in the skeletal muscles of the body. This can occur after a minor injury and usually resolves on its own.
Myofascial pain—chronic muscle pain—involves areas of intense muscle spasm and pain known as trigger points. It can affect a single muscle or an entire muscle group. It also may be alleviated or intensified by activity or stress, depending on each individual patient.
Myofascial pain is a major symptom of Fibromyalgia, a condition of widespread pain and physical disorder. Additionally, fibromyalgia sufferers may experience pain in the joints, tendons, and other soft tissues of the body. Some patients suffer from fatigue, lowered immunity, sleep disturbances, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and psychological issues such as depression.
Drug therapies to reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia are both ineffective and harmful for the body. Not only does the long-term use of medications cause serious health issues, but drugs do nothing to address the cause of fibromyalgia.
