Health conditions

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a painful condition affecting the muscles, and giving rise to tenderness and fatigue. In this condition, pain is felt more severely than usual in the body because the nervous system has become sensitised.

Fibromyalgia can affect sleep, digestion and cause brain fog, amongst other things and the pain of fibromyalgia can disrupt the breathing pattern.

How Osteopathy can help

Osteopathy can be very effective in helping to manage the symptoms of fibromyalgia and Jane is very experienced in this field. She finds that sore muscles and aching joints respond well to treatment.

Advice can be given to help you retrain your breathing pattern and this can help with relaxation. Being relaxed helps with digestion via the effect on the autonomic nervous system.

There is no cure for fibromyalgia but osteopathic treatment can help you feel much more comfortable and we will work with you to explore ways that may help you manage the condition better.
