Senior Balance Exercises For Fibromyalgia Patients

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   Individuals who suffer with Fibromyalgia have varying degrees of pain which can be helped with a series of fitness and senior balance exercises. Please see Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Symptoms of Fibromyalgia sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event. Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression. Recently, medical researchers looked into the connections between fitness activities and decreasing complaints of pain for those who suffer with Fibromyalgia. Researchers found that overall higher physical fitness was consistently associated with lower levels of pain, lower pain-related catastrophizing, and higher chronic pain self-efficacy for those diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Furthermore, medical providers such as doctors, nurses and physical therapists who treat patients with Fibromyalgia recommend that they initiate a program of senior balance exercises before commencing a series of fitness regimes to ensure safety with all exercises.

Senior Balance Exercises For Those With Fibromyalgia

   to help reduce symptoms of pain for those with Fibromyalgia, medical professionals recommend that they embark on a program of fitness and senior balance exercises. One equilibrium routine that is effective to enhance stability with fitness programs involves standing on one foot and slowly moving the other foot forwards and backwards. This sequence involves a static hold ( the foot you are standing on) combined with a dynamic component ( the foot that is moving forwards and backwards). This steadiness routine can help maximize your stability with other fitness regimes. You can learn this stability exercise and other senior balance exercises by following the instruction of a qualified Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance Dvd.
