Bright-Light Treatment Shows Promise for Fibromyalgia
BOSTON — Morning bright-light treatment may be an effective adjunctive treatment for fibromyalgia, improving function and easing pain sensitivity, perhaps by shifting sleep patterns in a way that appears to help fibromyalgia, results of a pilot study suggest.
Helen J. Burgess, PhD, director, Biological Rhythms Research Laboratory and professor, Department of Behavioral Sciences, Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, presented the study here at SLEEP 2017: 31st Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies.
Morning light treatment has been shown to reduce depression. Moreover, improved mood can lead to diminished pain and improvement in people's ability to cope and function with pain.
