Abstract

MORRIS and others, Arthritis Associates, Kingsport, TN, USA, arthritis@charter.net, have put forward possible strategies for an individualized treatment programme for fibromyalgia. One of the most complex situations encountered by the clinician is the patient who presents with the cluster of signs and symptoms that are called fibromyalgia syndrome. While physicians focus primarily on pharmacological treatment, a number of non-pharmacological modalities have been shown to benefit patients as well. No one therapy is uniformly effective in every patient; treatment programs consisting of a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies must be individualized to the patient, and the clinician may have to try several different modalities before reaching an optimal improvement in the patient's symptoms.
