The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    CAM recommendations for treating fibromyalgia

    The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) has issued the first guidelines for the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).

    Here are their recommendations for nonpharmacological management of FMS.

    • Heated pool treatment, with or without exercise
    • Individually tailored exercise (aerobic exercise and strength training) programs
    • Cognitive behavioral therapy
    • Relaxation, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, psychological support

    Not all recommendations are for all patients. Speak with your healthcare provider for the best mix of drug and non-drug treatments.
