Treatment for Fibromyalgia/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - LLLT

Fibromyalgia is an enigmatic syndrome characterized by chrfibroonic, widespread pain along with tender points, fatigue, sleep disturbances, abnormal stress response, and tension headaches. One of the most difficult aspects of fibromyalgia is the lack of radiologic, biologic, or genetic signs. Fibromyalgia affects two to four percent of the population, mainly women. 

The symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary from mild to severe. The most common symptoms are:

  • Increased sensitivity to pain
  • Increased sensitivity to sensory stimuli such as heat, cold and smell
  • Extreme fatigue (tiredness)
  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Problems with sleep.

The cause or causes of fibromyalgia are not known. But it is believed fibromyalgia symptoms can be triggered or made worse by several factors, including:

  • Weather changes
  • Hard physical labour
  • Mental stress
  • Infections
  • Allergies
  • Overexertion
  • Other musculoskeletal disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis.

Symptoms that suggest  fibromyalgia are:

  • Widespread pain for three months or longer
  • Abnormal tenderness at particular points around the neck, shoulder, chest, hip, knee and elbow
  • Disturbed sleep patterns.

Currently, main stream medicine is slow in finding cure for, and in many places, slow to even accept Fibromyalgia. At Sydney Laser Health Solutions, we use integrative therapeutic approach of LLLT, plus Laser Acupuncture and Laser Blood Irradiation to effectively manage this disorder.Over the past 24 months, 14 patients have had LLLT treatment at Sydney Laser Health Solutions, about 92% of whom had between 20% - 100% reduction in pain, 5 out of 14 were pain free at end of treatment, 11 out 14 were able to manage daily life independently and 6 went back or were able to find jobs.
