Myalgia And Fibromyalgia
Myofascial pain syndrome is a common local painful muscle disorder caused by myofascial trigger points. Fibromyalgia is a generalized pain condition more common in females (4:1) with the association of multiple trigger points. The American college of Rheumatology introduced the criteria for the diagnosis of fibromyalgia, which includes a history of widespread pain that must be both above and below the waist and on both sides of the body, and the presence of at least 11 out of 18 designated tender points throughout the body. Chronic fatigue, poor sleep patterns, and reduced muscle endurance are features of fibromyalgia. Is is also commonly associated with irritable bowel syndrome, and swollen joints.
Treatment is offered through diet, supplemental and nutritional counseling, as well as Biopuncture for the alleviation of the trigger points. The homeopathic remedy helps the body to provide a natural solution to the chronic pain condition. Dr. Desai has been successful with the use of Biopuncture for both myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia.
