Many therapists find themselves faced with the challenge of treating clients diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome. Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic, systemic condition characterized by muscle pain and tender/trigger points. Since little is known about the etiology of this syndrome, it is often difficult and frustrating for therapists to treat.
Kathryn Stogner Henderson has written Fibromyalgia Syndrome to teach you techniques that can help clients reduce pain and increase functioning. This comprehensive guide is the only resource available to date that addresses physical therapy management for clients with fibromyalgia. Based on her many years of experience treating this population, Ms. Henderson presents fully illustrated physical therapy techniques that are easily modified to meet each clients individual needs.
By applying the material presented in Fibromyalgia Syndrome and drawing upon your own knowledge and clinical experience, you'll be able to more effectively assist your clients with fibromyalgia and improve their quality of life.
