    Treating Fibromyalgia with Whole Body Cryotherapy

    Fibromyalgia (FM) is characterized by chronic inflammation, accompanied by widespread muscle pain and pressure-sensitive tender points. In addition to reducing pain, whole body cryotherapy may effectively diminish other symptoms of fibromyalgia including sleep disturbances, fatigue, depression, anxiety, cognitive difficulties and headaches.

    Forty-two patients with fibromyalgia, who satisfied the diagnostic standards of the American College of Rheumatology, were assessed for pain (0= no pain, 10 = worst pain). Additional measures included levels of creactive protein (CRP), morning stiffness and number of swollen joints. After 10 daily whole body cryotherapy sessions, amelioration of pain at rest, pain on movement (kinesalgia) and exertion pain, improved by 12 to 21% on pain scale scores by those treated, as opposed to the control group, which showed no significant changes.

    The study also found a reduction in the number of painful pressure points in the treated group, and a reduction in the need for analgesics by 30 percent compared to the control group.

    Based on these findings, whole body cryotherapy in treating symptoms of fibromyalgia may be optimized at early onset, or acute stages of the disease.

    Thank you for pointing out that the study found a reduction of painful pressure points. This seems like it could really help my grandmother. I’ll have to do some research and find the best clinic.

    My mother has had shoulder surgery and two neck surgeries to treat the Fibromyalgia pain. The surgeries did no good. The several doctors I had seen, finally decided they had no idea what was wrong with her and no suggestions what to do. My family doctor sent us to the Total cure herbal foundation where she was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia with just one visit.we proceeded in purchasing the herbal formula which she used for complete 15 weeks treatment plan that was able to kill all the pain and terminate the whole symptoms,the herbal products has dramatically cure my mother from this very fibromyalgia disease with no serious side effect,you can also visit their website and purchase from them http://www.totalcureherbsfoundation.com

     I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia around 7 years ago although I’m certain I have had it much longer than that. I have suffered from sleeplessness, joint stiffness, severe pains, depression and fatigue. My neurologist prescribed duloxetin 40mg daily (Given as 20mg twice daily), although it did relieve some of the pain, I still suffered from joint stiffness and extreme fatigue. Finally, i started on Fibromyalgia herbal formula i ordered from Natural Herbal Gardens, this herbal formula did the magic! almost immediately i started usage, i started noticing a general reduction of symptoms including the very severe pains and fatigue. 9 weeks into usage, the disease has totally succumbed to this herbal treatment. The whole pains and terrible fatigue has seized and i am now able to function fully well again. (Visit www .naturalherbalgardens . com ) I’m able to get out of bed in the morning and have more energy to go about my daily activities.

    Fibromyalgia attacked my mother body more than 3 years ago after her knee surgery. She has been in a wheelchair for about six months, and she used a cane for another six months. She  did not even know how to walk anymore. We fought the fibromyalgia with a lot of pain pills and tears not until we had to give a try on natural formulas, we purchased a herbal treatment from totalcureherbsfoundation.com  which help her a lot and bring her back to normal again, the herbal formula reverse the symptoms dramatically and she’s totally free from the Fibromyalgia that cost her pains for ages .
