Physical Exercise Eases Fibromyalgia

Posted by Prahallad Panda on 7:37 PM Comments

Physical exercise may reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia; where physical, psychological and humeral elements play their roles.

Obesity and Inactivity Up Risk for Fibromyalgia

Moreover, the relative risk for women who were overweight and did not engage in leisure time physical activity was 2.09 (95% CI 1.36 to 3.21), the researchers reported in the May issue of Arthritis Care & Research.
Being overweight or obese is a strong and independent risk factor for the future development of fibromyalgia in women, particularly for those who are inactive, a Norwegian study found
Studies have shown lower levels of physical fitness among patients with fibromyalgia compared with healthy controls.
The analysis also found a nonsignificant tendency toward a dose-response effect for physical activity, with women who reported exercising at least four times per week having a 29% lower risk of fibromyalgia compared with those who were inactive (adjusted RR 0.71, 95% CI 0.46 to 1.09, P for trend =0.13).
Women who exercised for two hours or more per week had a relative risk of 0.77 (95% CI 0.52 to 1.15, P for trend =0.16).
