The authors suggest Activator Methods care as a natural way to treat fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain.

Synopsis

The symptoms include chronic, widespread musculoskeletal pain,  accompanied by multiple tender or trigger points, painful or restricted  movement, and persistent fatigue. For an estimated 26 million Americans,  the underlying condition is fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) or myofascial  pain syndrome (MPS) or both, in the form of FMS/MPS Complex.

Despite the widespread occurrence of .these conditions, the  average FMS or MPS patient suffers for five years and spends thousands  of dollars on medical bills before receiving an accurate diagnosis. And,  even then, effective treatment may still prove elusive, as few doctors  are trained to understand or respond to these conditions.

Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome offers the  first comprehensive patient guide for managing these conditions. You’ll  start by learning what FMS and MPS are, evaluating your own symptoms,  and identifying the tender and/or trigger points that are crucial for  treating them. The manual covers chronic pain, sleep problems, and other  “Internal affairs,” shows you how you can use your mind to counteract  physical symptoms and the numbing effects of “fibrofog,” and provides an  extensive set of healing tools-including information on the latest  medications, a nutritional program, and tips for using bodywork and  other less commonly known treatments. Its comprehensive survival  strategies include suggestions for coping with family and work  situations, getting support, and dealing with the health care system.
