An Osteopathic Approach to treating fibromyalgia means the following, according to www.practicalpainmanagement.com:
- The human being is a dynamic unit of function.
- The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms that are self-healing in nature.
- Structure and function are interrelated at all levels.
- Rational treatment is based on these principles.
These direct quotes reflect the fundamentals of the sciences of anatomy and physiology. Attention and care to all aspects of a patient’s health, from the emotional to the physical, is a wonderful way to approach fibromyalgia.
You are a whole. One way to realize this is through breathing. When you breathe from the stomach, using an in and out motion instead of the usual shallow up and down breathing that so many people do, then the blood pressure lowers. That shows you the mind-body connection—the wholeness.
This type of approach can help with the depression that is so often found in fibromyalgia.
