For someone who is diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, it is easy to relate to debilitating symptoms such as chronic pain, fatigue, muscle and joint inflammation, brain fog, headaches, and or sleep and mood issues.
Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by musculoskeletal problems.
Typically for those diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, the thought of doing something as simple as getting out of bed can feel daunting. Often times it can be hard to incorporate any type of movement therapy or workout with Fibromyalgia, yet understanding the true physiological benefit of physical exercise may just be enough motivation to slowly take steps to do so.
For any fitness program using functional movement patterns is beneficial for injury prevention or recovery. This is the best method to approach movement for someone with limited abilities seeking to slowly build strength and mobility.
ELDOA and SOMA Training are movement therapies that were introduced into the US about 30 yrs ago by French Osteopath, Dr Guy Voyer. These techniques are designed to work with the myofascial system to create space, flow, and repair damaged tissue that can directly eliminate inflammation in the body.
It also focuses on spinal postural exercises that create a foundation for ideal posture to prevent injury during exercise and simply moving in our daily lives. Using these techniques can provide a safe program for vulnerable bodies that may have some type of metabolic issue.
