Personalized Treatment and Support Available for Sufferers of Fibromyalgia
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 9, 2009 -- Allegheny Medical, (http://www.alleghenymedical.com/), one of Pittsburgh's premiere health care facilities, has created the multi-faceted "Fibromyalgia Flow" care plan. This treatment protocol is comprised of three main components: discovery through lab tests, an examination and a patient's medical history; restoration through therapy, rehabilitation exercise and hormonal imbalance correction; and maintenance through exercise, nutrition and stress reduction.
Fibromyalgia affects 3.7 million Americans and is characterized by musculoskeletal aches and pains, soft tissue tenderness, general fatigue and sleep disturbances. People with Fibromyalgia experience a variety of symptoms of varying intensities that come and go over time.
Specifically, those affected must deal with all-encompassing exhaustion, muscular aches, shooting pains, numbness, interrupted sleep, possible impaired memory, depression and more. Many times these symptoms interfere with the simplest of day-to-day activities.
Women are affected more often then men, but Fibromyalgia can strike adults and children regardless of sex, age or race. This chronic pain illness not only impacts the patient and their family, but their employer, friends and society as a whole. Fortunately, Dr. Neal Fanelli and his team of trained providers continue to have great success treating fibromyalgia patients, particularly for muscular aches, tender spots, chronic fatigue, sleep disturbances and depression.
Allegheny Medical's physicians educate individuals on recognizing the symptoms and causes of Fibromyalgia, as well as design personalized treatment plans based on the individual's health needs. Symptoms can be controlled through a comprehensive treatment program involving physical therapy, muscle therapy, nutrition, exercise, pain management and medication.
Additionally, Allegheny Medical offers ongoing support through their Fibromyalgia Support Group, which meets twice a month. The purpose of the group is to provide encouraging information as well as the latest breakthroughs associated with the condition. Through the group, participants can receive support from those who understand the challenges that Fibromyalgia sufferers face.
Those suffering from Fibromyalgia or related symptoms can schedule their complimentary consultation today by calling 412-494-4554. If you would like to register to attend the Fibromyalgia Support Group meetings, please call 412-494-4550.
