Fibromyalgia is the most common cause of severe musculoskeletal pain in people seen by rheumatologists and other physicians. Those with fibromyalgia often display musculoskeletal pain, chronic fatigue, and sleep disturbance. Other symptoms may include morning stiffness, headaches, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and thyroid problems. Emotional stress, noise, trauma, and even climate have been known to exacerbate symptoms.
With the numerous treatment options available for those suffering from fibromyalgia, there is still many who still struggle with fibromyalgia symptoms on a daily basis. However, one specific method has been showing steady promise in decreasing these symptoms; The Feldenkrais Method. The Feldenkrais Method was created by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, a Russian-born physicist and educator who developed his technique in response to his own diagnoses. This method works by increasing the person's sensitivity and awareness of physical movement. This method has grown in popularity. The goal is to reprogram the sensorimotor learning ability of a person’s central nervous system, basically the body relearns the patterns in which we should move, as well as how our bodies control these movements. This method is based on principles of physics, kinesthetics, and biometrics. The Feldenkrais method encourages practitioners to work alongside patients in an “instructional” manner, instead of just attempting to correct them.
