Spinal Stabilization Exercises Plus Kinesio Taping Reduce Pain, Improve Well-Being in Women with Fibromyalgia, Study Shows
When combined with kinesio taping, a form of physical therapy based on the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, spinal stabilization exercises significantly reduce pain and improve overall health and well-being in women with fibromyalgia, a study says. The study, “Comparison of the effects of stabilization exercise plus kinesio taping and stabilization exercise alone on pain and well-being in fibromyalgia,” was published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice. Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic widespread pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and psychiatric disorders, such as depression, all of which contribute to a reduced quality of life and decreased overall well-being. While the underlying mechanisms of fibromyalgia remain unknown, inflammation of the connective tissue, or fascia — the tissue that supports the body’s internal organs, muscles, and bones — is thought to contribute to the development of widespread chronic pain.
