Following on from a very nonspecific description and treatment regime for Fibromyalgia, I thought I would open with the final paragraph in the web page for the Mayo Clinic’s discussion of FM.
The Causes of FM are described thus:
“Doctors don’t know what causes fibromyalgia, but it most likely involves a variety of factors working together. These may include:
- Genetics. Because fibromyalgia tends to run in families, there may be certain genetic mutations that may make you more susceptible to developing the disorder.
- Infections. Some illnesses appear to trigger or aggravate fibromyalgia.
- Physical or emotional trauma. Fibromyalgia can sometimes be triggered by a physical trauma, such as a car accident. Psychological stress may also trigger the condition.”
Now for the very good news.
Fibromyalgia is a condition that responds really well to Low Level Laser Therapy. FM is inflammation on a large scale, all over the body really, and laser therapy is really effective at diminishing or completely eliminating inflammation. Over the last 12 years at Cold Laser Pain Relief we have treated many cases and here are some of the reviews.
Please remember: While our treatment has highly significant success rates, results are never guaranteed. Each patient heals at his or her own rate, and because patients are all individuals, results will vary from patient to patient.
I have included 3 random studies that have been done (there are many more out there) which conclude that Low Level Laser Therapy is very helpful to those diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
