Combination therapy eases fibromyalgia symptoms

Tuesday 17 March 2009

ReutersReuters reports that “a review of previous clinical trial results shows that a multifaceted approach can be effective for treating fibromyalgia.”

The article goes on:

“Dr. Winfried Haeuser told Reuters Health that German guidelines recommend "multicomponent treatment" of fibromyalgia -- "at least two components: patient education or psychological therapy and exercise as second-line therapy for patients whose symptoms and restrictions in daily life are not sufficiently reduced by a single therapy, such as medication."

To investigate how well this strategy works, Haeuser, of Klinikum Saarbruecken, and her colleagues examined pooled evidence from nine clinical trials of multicomponent therapy involving more than 1100 patients. The researchers report the results in the medical journal Arthritis and Rheumatism.”
