Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is one of the most common diseases of our era. It can be seen in about one out of every five individuals. The rate of incidence in women is 4 times greater than men.

Fibromyalgia is also called as soft tissue rheumatism.

Its difference from actual rheumatism is that normal findings are obtained in blood related to rheumatism.

The symptoms of fibromyalgia are generally:

  • Neck and back pains
  • Headaches, dizziness
  • Fatigue and exhaustion
  • Hypersomnia or insomnia
  • Short temper
  • Pains and numbing on arm and leg joints
  • Low back and leg pains

In psychological terms, it appears as a failure to enjoy one’s life due to constant pain.

Complaints generally last more than 3 months. These pains significantly reduce the quality of life.

A multi-disciplinary approach is quite important in the treatment of the disease; each single patient must be individually dealt with and treatment program must be customized.

Physiotherapy, osteopathy, manual treatment, high density laser, frequency treatment, medical therapy, exercise programs and in-fibrositis PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) are applied in our fibromyalgia treatment package.

Besides these applications, the diet systems of patients are regulated, defence mechanism is strengthened and trainings are provided in terms of stress management.

Success rate of our fibromyalgia treatment package is between the range of 80% – 95%.
