I have had great success in my Denver City Rolfing practice working with clients who have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. People suffering from the widespread neuropathic pain caused by this condition can often find relief from Rolf Structural Integration.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.
Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.
While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Rolfing, exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.
It is a gift to be able to help someone suffering from this widespread neuropathic pain condition. If you or anyone you know is in pain, Rolfing can help! For more information, click here to visit the Denver City Rolfing website.
