Strength training for fibromyalgia

Repost from Physio Network.

A lot of our clients suffer from Fibromyalgia, they are often fearful of training and strengthening due to pain responses they have had to various stimuli.

This systematic review has demonstrated when given graduated strengthening really good benefits and NO increase in pain. If you have had a painful response you may have not applied the correct amount of exercise or had the right guidance around what would work best for you.
