Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues. It amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way the brain processes pain signals.
Causes Of Fibromyalgia
Doctors don't know what exactly causes fibromyalgia, but it most likely involves a variety of factors, working together. These may include:
  • Genetics - Because fibromyalgia tends to run in families, there may be certain genetic mutations that may make individuals more susceptible to developing the disorder.
  • Infections - Some illnesses appear to trigger or aggravate fibromyalgia than others.
  • Physical or emotional trauma - Fibromyalgia can sometimes be triggered by a physical trauma, such as a car accident. Psychological stress may also trigger the condition.
  • Widespread pain - The pain associated with fibromyalgia, often, is described as a constant dull ache that has lasted for at least three months. To be considered widespread, the pain must occur on both sides of the body, and above and below the waist.
  • Fatigue - People with fibromyalgia often awaken tired, even though they report sleeping for long periods. Sleep is often disrupted by pain, and many patients with fibromyalgia have other sleep disorders, such as restless legs syndrome, and sleep apnea.
  • Cognitive difficulties - A symptom commonly referred to as "fibro fog" impairs the ability to focus, pay attention, and concentrate on mental tasks.
Fibromyalgia often co-exists with other painful conditions, such as:
  • Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Migraine and other types of headaches.
  • Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome.
  • Temporomandibular joint disorders.
A fibromyalgia diagnosis can be made if a person has had widespread pain for more than three months — with no underlying medical condition that could cause the pain.

While there is no lab test to confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, your doctor may want to rule out other conditions that may have similar symptoms.
How FMTTM Helps
Research has shown that the most effective treatment for fibromyalgia is a holistic management approach, which includes pharmacology, exercise therapy, psychological therapy, and diet modifications.

At VARDĀN, we assess the whole body to evaluate the reason of pain and dysfunction and then manage it with manual therapy and posture, along with exercise treatment, so that the benefits of mobilization are maintained. The exercise program can be especially as considerable research shows active exercises for 45 minutes, 4 times a week, for at least 4-6 months, can give maximum and long-standing pain relief and improve function.
Our Client Speak

I am happy to share my experience with VARDĀN. I have been having a nagging shoulder and neck pain since many years now. But over the last one year, it has completely made me motionless with no quality of life. Recently, I got the reference of Tanu, from my relative, so thought of giving it a chance.

I was honestly not expecting much improvement in the first meeting at least. But the truth is there is eighty percent change in my life in just one session itself. In years, I would have not been so active as I am feeling now. My gratitude to the hard-working therapist, Tanu, and VARDĀN, to render such service to the people. Also, I am happy with the overall ambience and infrastructure of the clinic.
