Patients are aided in understanding the symptoms of fibromyalgia and are taught symptom reduction techniques. Heat, electric stimulation, TENS, range of
motion, tension release, relaxation training, and strengthening exercises are part of the program and are specifically tailored to individual needs and tolerance levels. A specific treatment outline is followed so that
symptoms can be controlled or even eliminated. Each patient is given a workbook entitled: Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Getting Healthy, which provides many self help and general information for practical use in gaining
control over this challenging condition.
