Tucson Arizona Fibromyalgia Treatment


Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by aching and pain in muscles, tendons and joints all over the body, especially along the spine.  The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown. There are, however, many theories about why people get fibromyalgia.  One theory suggests that stress contributes to the onset of fibromyalgia.

When fibromyalgia begins, stresses in a person’s life are prominent. Stress often results in disturbed sleep patterns and a lack of restful sleep. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body does not produce the chemicals necessary to control or regulate pain. A lack of these pain-regulating chemicals results in tenderness in the upper back and forearms, leading to the symptoms of fibromyalgia.


Wallace Physical Therapy sees many patients that suffer from fibromyalgia.  Since each person’s condition is different, Bob Wallace and his therapists treat each patient differently, whether a flare-up needs to be calmed down with some heat and gentle massage, or the patient gets benefit from a therapeutic massage and some good cardiovascular exercise.  Bob Wallace also teaches his patients how to cope with fibromyalgia on a daily basis and educates them on how to manage their condition on a daily basis.
