The effects of microphysiotherapy on quality of life, pain, and serum IL-8 concentration in women with fibromyalgia: A double-blind randomized controlled trial
MetadataShow full item record
Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic painful syndrome associated with persistent pain and emotional symptoms such as depression and anxiety. Microphysiotherapy is a French technique of manual therapy that identifies the primary cause of a disease or symptom. The study consisted of an intervention group (MG) treated with microphysiotherapy (n = 20) and a placebo group (PG) treated with placebo intervention (n = 19). Patients treated with microphysiotherapy have shown improvement on quality of life, especially regarding pain, fatigue, morning tiredness and depression. Serum IL-8 concentration did not alter significantly between and within groups.
