#7223 Chronic Pain: Managing Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain
Are you comfortable with treating patients who have chronic pain? Patients with chronic pain present considerable challenges in examination and in selection of effective therapeutic interventions. Many have been to numerous practitioners seeking results unsuccessfully, despite taking many drugs and trying a variety of therapies. Some have been misdiagnosed. This course clearly describes the differential diagnosis of two main categories of chronic pain conditions: fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS)and myofascial pain syndrome (MPS). Participants will learn to recognize these syndromes and the co-morbid conditions commonly associated with them. Research evidence will be presented to describe the clinical tests contributing to appropriate diagnosis of FMS or MPS. Effective interventions to reduce the symptoms of FMS and MPS will be discussed, based on current evidence. This information is a must for any practitioner who treats patients suffering with FMS or MPS.
