Fibromyalgia treatment


Widespread muscle pain and tenderness. Fibromyalgia is often accompanied by fatigue and altered sleep, memory and mood. Widespread muscle pain and tenderness are the most common symptoms. Medication, talk therapy and stress reduction may help in controlling the symptoms. Symptoms *Requires a medical diagnosis. Widespread muscle pain and tenderness are the most common symptoms. People may experience: Pain areas: in the muscles, abdomen, back, or neck Pain types: can be chronic, diffuse, sharp, or severe Pain circumstances: can occur at night Gastrointestinal: constipation, nausea, or passing excessive amounts of gas Whole body: fatigue, feeling tired, or malaise Muscular: muscle tenderness, delayed onset muscle soreness, or muscle spasms Sensory: pins and needles, sensitivity to cold, or sensitivity to pain Mood: anxiety, mood swings, or nervousness Sleep: difficulty falling asleep or sleep disturbances Cognitive: forgetfulness or lack of concentration Hand: sensation of coldness or tingling Also common: depression, flare, headache, irritability, joint stiffness, painful menstruation, or tingling feet What are trigger points? • A person used to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia if they had widespread pain and tenderness in at least 11 of the known 18 trigger points. Doctors would check to see how many of these points were painful by pressing firmly on them. o Common trigger points include: o back of the head o tops of shoulders o upper chest o hips o knees o outer elbows • Trigger points are no longer the focus of diagnosis for fibromyalgia. Instead, doctors may make a diagnosis if you report widespread pain for more than three months and have no diagnosable medical condition that can explain the pain. What causes an Fibromyalgia? Medical researchers and doctors don’t know what causes fibromyalgia. However, thanks to decades of research, they’re close to understanding factors that may work together to cause it. These factors include: • Infections: Prior illnesses may trigger fibromyalgia or make symptoms of the condition worse. • Genetics: Fibromyalgia often runs in families. If you have a family member with this condition, your risk for developing it is higher. Researchers think certain genetic mutations may play a role in this condition. Those genes haven’t yet been identified. • Trauma: People who experience physical or emotional trauma may develop fibromyalgia. The condition has been linked with post-traumatic stress disorder. • Stress: Like trauma, stress can create long-reaching effects your body deals with for months and years. Stress has been linked to hormonal disturbances that could contribute to fibromyalgia. • Doctors also don’t fully understand the factors that cause people to experience the chronic widespread pain associated with the condition. Some theories suggest it may be that the brain lowers the pain threshold. What once wasn’t painful becomes very painful over time. • Another theory suggests that the nerves and receptors in the body become more sensitive to stimulation. That means they may overreact to pain signals and cause unnecessary or exaggerated pain. How Cold Lasers benefit Achilles Tendinitis ? • Low level Cold Laser therapy – also called cold laser – a medical grade, painless therapeutic laser used as a fruitful treatment to cut back inflammation, restore healthy tissue and reduce pain. The powerful anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects of LLLT help to improve the quality of life in patients suffering from the pain of a knee pain injury. • LLLT works by enhancing circulation and encouraging the injured cells and tissues to fix, assisting to restore normal function. As the underlying problem is treated, treatment is possible. • A ground-breaking therapy for accelerating healing and relieving the pain connected with Ankle pain, pain reduction can usually be felt just after 2-3 treatments and some treatments is preferred to attain the best results. What happens during the procedure? • Cold Cold Laser therapy is administered with a small handheld device in a company setting. It's a noninvasive procedure that may be performed by a doctor, clinician, or physical therapist. • It may harm your eyes to appear directly into the laser, so you might be asked to utilize protective eyewear. • The physician will support the handheld device near or touching skin on your own knee for 30 seconds to some minutes. The length of time is determined by the dose and the size of the area being treated. • The light energy will pass through skin and into your tissues, where it will undoubtedly be absorbed. The light energy helps you to lessen inflammation and promote regeneration of damaged tissue. • It generally takes more than a single treatment to feel better. Just how many it will take will change depending on how much damage there is to your Ankle. You will need to come back repeatedly weekly for a couple weeks or months. • It can be thought of exactly the same way we think of the effect of sunlight. Sunlight provides us with vitamin D is an important vitamin that's produced in our bodies through the absorption of sunlight. Vitamin D is essential in intracellular communication and also plays a part in bone health. 1. ACCELERATED TISSUE REPAIR AND CELL GROWTH o Photons of light from lasers penetrate into tissue and accelerate cellular growth and reproduction. Cold Laser therapy increases the energy available to the cell so it can work faster, better, and quickly get rid of waste products. When cells of tendons, ligaments, and muscles are exposed to laser light they repair and heal faster. 2. FASTER WOUND HEALING o Laser light increases collagen production by stimulating fibroblasts. Collagen is the building block of tissue repair and healing. Cold Laser therapy increases fibroblast activity and therefore collagen production to speed healing. 3. REDUCED FIBROUS TISSUE FORMATION o Low level Cold Laser therapy decreases scar tissue formation. Scar tissue can be a source of chronic pain and poor healing. By eliminating excessive scar tissue and encouraging proper collagen production, painful scars and chronic pain is reduced. 4. ANTI-INFLAMMATION o Cold Laser therapy causes vasodilatation (increases size of capillaries) which increases blood flow. The treatments also increases lymphatic drainage to decrease swelling or edema. Therefore, Cold Laser therapy reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation while speeding the recovery process. 5. PAIN RELIEF o Cold Cold Laser therapy decreases pain by blocking pain signals to the brain. Some nerve cells sense pain and send signals to the brain. Chronic pain can be caused by overly active pain nerves. Specific wavelengths help "shut off" the pain signals, thereby; eliminating your pain. o Low level lasers are excellent at decreasing inflammation, which also increases pain nerve activity. Cold Cold Laser therapy also increases endorphins and enkephalins, which block pain signals and decrease pain sensation. Overall Cold Laser therapy reduces painful nerve signals and reducing your perceived pain. 6. INCREASED BLOOD FLOW o Blood carries nutrients and building blocks to the tissue, and carries waste products away. Increased blood flow to tissues increases and enhances cellular healing. Cold Cold Laser therapy increases the formation of capillaries in damaged tissue. Specific laser frequency also increases blood flow to the area treated, to enhance injury repair. 7. INCREASED REPAIR AND REGENERATION o Low level lasers increases enzyme activity to improve metabolic activity that affects cell repair and regeneration. The enzymes are turned on "high" to speed the healing. 8. NERVE FUNCTION AND REPAIR o Nerves heal very slowly. Lasers speed up this process. Damage to nerves causes numbness, pain, muscle weakness, and altered sensations. Cold Laser therapy treatments enhance nerve function, healing, and reduce pain. 9. INCREASED ENERGY PRODUCTION - ATP o ATP is like gasoline for cells, it is the energy source that cells operate. Injured cells often have low levels of ATP, which decreases their ability to heal and repair. By increasing ATP and "gasoline storage levels," cells have more ATP for healing and repair. Increased mitochondrial production is very important with nerve pain. 10. ACUPRESSURE AND TRIGGER POINTS o Low level Cold Laser therapy decreases trigger points and stimulates acupuncture points to decrease muscle and joint pain. o We combine low level Cold Laser therapy with a variety of techniques and treatments. Cold Cold Laser therapy can be used alone as a single treatment modality, or in conjunction with other Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, massage therapy, or medical treatments. Does the procedure hurt? You could feel a small tingling sensation, however, you won't feel heat or cold. Additionally it is painless. There's no lengthy recovery time, in order to go home right away. Benefits of Cold Laser Treatment for Fibromyalgia • Increases blood flow by vasodilating local blood vessels to an area with low blood flow in comparison to regions of your body that are surrounded by major muscle groups. This increased blood flow brings in the nutrients necessary to fix damaged tissues and removed the damaged tissue fibers • increasing lymphatic flow which helps to cut back local swelling • decreases prostagladin formation which reduces pain levels • increases endorphin production • expedites the body's natural healing processes, allowing for quicker introduction into rehabilitation • mild sprains can see drastic improvement in 3-5 visits
