Fibromyalgia is a debilitating chronic pain condition affecting approximately 5.4% of the UK population.19 Its primary symptoms include: chronic widespread muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, tenderness (allodynia) and hyperalgesia to pressure over tender points.53,54 Its pathogenesis is uncertain but may be due to dysfunction of the central nervous system (CNS)31, possibly related to abnormal processing of pain expectation amongst other CNS abnormalities.8 Current treatments include: antidepressant and antiepileptic medication, exercise, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and patient education.

The objectives of this project are 1) to investigate the applicability, safety, decrease in the number of falls, and incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of prevention of falls program through Tele-SSE in women with FM, and 2) to study the transfer of obtained results to the public and private socio-health economy of Extremadura. Methods/Design: A randomized controlled trial with experimental (Tele-SSE) and control (usual treatment) groups will be carried out. The application of Tele-SSE will be performed for 12 months (three times per week) and one additional follow-up month after the intervention. A focus group including...

ch Antoni Sanz Juan V. Luciano The study protocol of a prospective and randomized controlled trial for the assessment of the efficacy of nature activity therapy for people with Fibromyalgia (NAT-FM) is described. The primary outcome is the mean change from baseline in the Revised Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQR) score at post-treatment (12 weeks) and at 9 months of follow-up, and secondary outcomes are changes in the positive affect, negative affect, pain, fatigue, self-efficacy, catastrophising, and emotional regulation. A total of 160 patients with fibromyalgia will be divided into two arms: treatment-as-...

Thus, our findings provide mechanistic evidence supporting the potential therapeutic efficacy of EA for treating FM pain. PMID: 31941349 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
