Training Clients with Fibromyalgia
Training Clients with Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is characterized by musculoskeletal pain throughout the entire body usually accompanied by a number of other chronic issues. It has traditionally been categorized as a rheumatic-like disorder that creates widespread pain and accompanying psychological issues, but current research points toward fibromyalgia being caused by neurochemical imbalances in the central nervous system (CNS) that increase the perception of pain. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), fibromyalgia affects 5 million Americans 18 or older with between 80-90 percent of those diagnosed being women. However, men and children also can also develop the disorder, with the majority of diagnosis occurring during middle age.
