Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal disorder with widespread pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep issues, memory loss, and severe mood swings. Research shows that fibromyalgia affects the way a person’s brain processes pain signals and amplifies them so that people who have fibromyalgia feel constant discomfort. Women are much more likely to suffer from fibromyalgia than men. Sometimes symptoms begin after a physical injury, surgery, or infection. Other times stress plays a role in fibromyalgia, and symptoms can gradually accumulate over time. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for fibromyalgia, but there are treatment plans available that can help sufferers control symptoms.
Sovereign Rehabilitation is a trusted source for helping those who suffer from fibromyalgia. With comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation, our licensed physical therapists offer a variety of therapeutic treatments for fibromyalgia. Because fibromyalgia is a constant discomfort that affects both sides of the body and the body above and below the waist, people who are affected from this disorder often feel that there is no relief. Sovereign Rehab wants to change the outlook for those who are suffering. Fatigue also causes stress on the body that is already stressed from fibromyalgia. People often wake tired, despite reporting that they have slept for long periods of time. Because sleep is often disrupted by pain, many people with this disorder have sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome.

We understand how debilitating a chronic pain disorder can be, and we are here to help you achieve an improved quality of life.
