Evidence-based interventions for fibromyalgia


An interdisciplinary approach incorporating medication, activity scheduling and CBT, which addresses both physical and psychological factors, has been shown to be the optimal treatment strategy.4

Listening to and believing in an individual’s experience of pain, together with reassurance and education, can significantly reduce worry and anxiety, which in themselves can augment the experience of pain. Pain management courses, CBT and education about fibromyalgia all address unhelpful beliefs, behaviours and their adverse effects.

In addition, they encourage the acquisition and application of a range of positive coping skills and strategies. It is important that any intervention is personalised to the individual and agreed with them, so that they can take an active role in the self-management of their condition.
