It is estimated that over 5 million Americans suffer from Fibromyalgia. This syndrome is a chronic disorder that causes significant pain and fatigue that interrupts a person’s daily life. While fibromyalgia is not a form of arthritis, it is considered to be a rheumatic condition that impairs the joints and soft tissues causing chronic pain. At Sovereign Rehabilitation in Atlanta, Georgia, we offer expert treatment for fibromyalgia sufferers. We are a comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation company that offers expert physical and rehabilitation therapy to patients with fibromyalgia and other chronic and acute conditions. Our team of licensed physical and manual therapists works with each patient on an individual basis to find the best source of treatment that will achieve long-term results.
While fibromyalgia affects both men and women, approximately 85% of all cases diagnosed are of women. Most people are diagnosed with this chronic condition in their middle age, although many symptoms appeared earlier in life. While this is a relatively new condition that is now diagnosed, studies show that heredity may play a large role in who will be affected. Many people associate the on-set of fibromyalgia with a physically or emotionally stressful event, while others seem to have symptoms spontaneously occur. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we understand how painful and emotional fibromyalgia can be to our patients. We are committed to working with your physician in a team approach to help you find the relief that you deserve.
If you have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and are looking for treatment for your chronic pain, please contact Sovereign Rehabilitation today. Our therapists are committed to helping our patients find long-term relief from their pain and suffering so that they can live their best lives.
