Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes pain in the muscles & bones

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia – is a long-term or chronic disorder with the most common symptoms being widespread muscle and joint pain and fatigue. Simply put you ache all over!

We do know certain things suggest you’re more likely to get it:

  • You’re a woman.

  • You have another painful disease, such as arthritis, or an infection.

  • You have anxiety or depression.

  • You were physically or emotionally abused or have had trauma and post-traumatic stress (PTSD).

  • You rarely exercise.

  • Other family members have it.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Simply put, you ache all over. Common symptoms include:

  • Muscle pain, burning, twitching, or tightness.

  • Low pain threshold or tender points over many areas of the body.
  • Draining fatigue.

  • Having trouble with concentration, memory, and recall “brain fog”.

  • Insomnia or not sleeping well.

  • Anxiety and/or feelings of depression.

Fibromyalgia can feel similar to osteoarthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis

But rather than hurting in a specific area, the pain and stiffness could be throughout your body.

Other fibro symptoms can include:

  • stomach pain, bloating, queasiness, constipation, and diarrhea (irritable bowel syndrome).

  • Headaches/migraine and jaw pain.

  • Dry mouth, nose, and eyes.

  • Sensitivity to cold, heat, light, or sound.

  • Numbness or tingling in your face, arms, hands, legs, or feet.

I can help you with your Fibromyalgia

I have been studying and practicing for 20 years and I’ve learned a lot about the human body and how it reacts and heals itself.

A lot of what we have been trained to treat doesn’t work in reality for everyone. Every person is unique and requires a customised treatment program for their own individual symptoms and needs.

My unique approach combing physiotherapy, with kinesiology and gut health addresses the many facets that contribute to fibromyalgia.

If this article connects with how you, I’d be more than happy to discuss your situation in person.

TESTIMONIAL

Both my husband and I have been seeing Amanda now for almost 10 years – she is very professional and is able to diagnose the real issues quickly. Amanda also has a deep knowledge of the body and knows exactly what type of exercises and rehab to give you. I always feel great improvement once I have seen her and know I am back on the road to recovery. There have been a couple of times where I couldn’t even walk but Amanda really helped me through those difficult times. I would recommend her to anybody.

I have suffered from chronic back spasms ever since i had my second baby. I am happy to say after seeing Amanda and have some Kinesiology my lower back pain diminished very quickly and I am now back to normal and even signing up for the gym. I thoroughly recommend Amanda to all of my friends and family.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your treatments. I’ve had great results with you as a Physiotherapist & even longer lasting wellness with the combination of all the modalities you practice. I always come away from my treatments feeling amazing. Also after all the years of trying to conceive we are pregnant with our first baby. I believe the balancing we did around conception helped us in a big way. Thank you

Amanda was able to help me see the things contributing to my pain which was more than just physical. This was very surprising and refreshing to me. My job has a lot of inherent stress and I definitely appreciate the tools and process Amanda uses.
