Groundbreaking study widens treatment options for fibromyalgia
“Figuring Out Fibromyalgia: Current Science and the Most Effective Treatments” by Dr Ginevra Liptan 2011, helps us understand fascia in fibromyalgia muscle pain and therefore treatment of muscle pain. The fascia is the connective tissue surrounding the muscle and the area targeted in myofascial release therapy.
So it seems, because of the scientific evidence in this book, treating the fascia will be the way forward in resolving fibromyalgia muscle pain. Dr Liptan believes that fascia is the missing link in our understanding of fibromyalgia.
Also in 2011 a European study including myofascial release treatments found significant reduction in fibro pain even weeks after treatments finished.
