Fibromyalgia Syndrome
A Practitioner's Guide to
Treatment

Author:
Leon Chaitow 

Publisher: Churchill Livingstone               

ISBN: 0-443-06227-7

Leon Chaitow, Osteopathic Practitioner and Senior Lecturer, University of Westminister, London, UK

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a relatively "new" condition in that it was officially recognized and classified as a diagnosable condition only in 1990. It is a complex syndrome and sufferers may experience a wide variety of symptoms, from headaches and fatigue to widespread muscular pain or irritable bowel syndrome. Some people still refuse to recognize Fibromyalgia as a single syndrome but it is now estimated to be the second common condition encountered in clinics for the treatment of chronic pain. It is now accepted that many people with chronic low back pain will go on to develop FMS. This high prevalence of FMS in the general population is regarded as highly significant and has considerable implications for the provision and funding of relevant health care. 

This book aims to help practitioners to recognize the syndrome and to plan for its appropriate treatment and management. 

The Medical Massage Practitioner will find treatment suggestions especially in regards to Myofascial and Trigger Point Therapy.
