Fibromyalgia Pain

At Greencare, we specialise in the treatment of fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia, sometimes referred to as fibrositis, is the second most common condition affecting bones and muscles.  

Fibromyalgia can affect people of all ages and is often triggered by an event that causes physical stress or emotional (psychological) stress. People with lupus or rheumatoid arthritis are also more likely to develop fibromyalgia.

Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include: 

What are traditional treatment methods for this type of pain?

The most common treatments for the pain caused by fibromyalgia are physical activity, self-care and cognitive-behavioural therapy. Over the counter medication is sometimes recommended to help reduce the pain.

Are there alternative treatment options for the pain caused by fibromyalgia?

If you are experiencing persistent pain and discomfort caused by fibromyalgia and have tried other treatments that haven’t worked for you, we encourage you to seek medical advice and speak with one of our experienced practitioners. After assessing your specific needs, our practitioners will determine if alternative treatment options are suitable for you.
