Fibromyalgia & Exercise

A complex and often difficult musculoskeletal disease for the Physiotherpists or clinician to treat therefore, it’s great to see a clear graphical illustration from Andrade and Dominski (2020).

Communicated is the effectiveness of both aerobic and strength training for fibromyalgia clients. A 40% of 1RM for resistance training and 30-60 mins of exercise 3 X per week is recommended.

Although a client centered approach may see modifications to this programming prescription bec musculoskeletal pain is reported as the main adverse effect of exercise in this client group.
