  2. 2. Q: What is fibromyalgia?
  3. 3. A: Fibromyalgia is a fairly common musculoskeletal disorder characterized by chronic widespread pain at a number of anatomical locations and a reduced pain threshold. Sufferers commonly complain of fatigue, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, headache, migraine, abdominal pain and increased urinary frequency. The exact cause is unknown
  4. 4. Q: Is general exercise useful for fibromyalgia?
  5. 5. A: General exercise or aerobic exercise programs appear to be very effective for the treatment of fibromyalgia symptoms. Additionally, while high-intensity programs appear to be more effective for increasing fitness (as they are in healthy subjects), they do not appear to be more efficacious for the symptoms of fibromyalgia
  6. 6. Q: Is resistance training useful for fibromyalgia?
  7. 7. A: Resistance training appears to be efficacious for the treatment of fibromyalgia, although some studies indicate poor adherence and high drop-out rates from the interventions. It may be appropriate to program either aerobic or resistance training on the basis of individual preference or on the probability of greatest adherence
  8. 8. Q: Is water-based exercise useful for fibromyalgia?
  9. 9. A: Water-based exercise is as effective as land-based exercise for the treatment of fibromyalgia. It may be best to choose the exercise program on the basis of the greatest probability of adherence
  10. 10. Q: What are the evidence-based recommendations for exercise for fibromyalgia?
  11. 11. A: Exercise intervention for fibromyalgia is a recommended treatment method. Practical considerations seem to be most important and the exercise program should be designed with adherence in mind
