Conventional therapies for Fibromyalgia have limited success in treating this complex and unexplained condition. Current Fibromyalgia treatment is largely comprised of prescribing different medications for the varying symptoms in a trial and error approach.
In a previous blog on Fibromyalgia symptoms and diagnosis we spoke about the advantages of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the diagnosis and treatment of the changeable symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Research* shows that as many as 90 percent of people with Fibromyalgia have turned to complementary and alternative medicine to manage their symptoms. Acupuncture*, in particular, has become a popular treatment choice, providing natural pain relief and has shown – through research – to be an effective Fibromyalgia treatment.
The symptoms of Fibromyalgia are highly variable from one person to another. Combining both conventional and alternative treatments is often found to be the most effective way of treating this difficult condition. A treatment program may include a combination of psychological therapies, medications, a specialised exercise program, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and gentle massage and reflexology. These therapies can be interchanged depending on your current symptoms on that day.
