Reflections on FMS Treatment, Research, and Neurotherapy: Cautionary Tales

  • Mary Lee Esty

Abstract

Treatment planning for a patient diagnosed with fibromyalgia (FMS) requires
neurotherapists to consider a wide range of potential causes during history taking. Effective treatment planning often involves interventions from multiple specialists coordinating treatments. Creation of a treatment team may involve, in addition to neurotherapy, medical specialties such as infectious disease, physical medicine, neurology, nutrition, and rheumatology, as well as cranial sacral and myofascial treatments, and surface electromyography (sEMG). Understanding the signs of common complications in those diagnosed with FMS is vital to effective treatment.
