What is Fibromyalgia?

Picture 1.png

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes pain all over the body and heightened pain sensitivity (abnormal pain perception processing).

It affects about 4 million US adults, around 2% of the adult population [1]. .

The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, and there is no known cure.​

Fibromyalgia can severely impact one's quality of life. Symptoms often include:

How is Fibromyalgia Treated?

While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, it can be treated and managed with medication and self-management strategies. This may include the following

Medications

Stress management

Aerobic exercises & strengthening

Good sleep habits

Patient education classes

Cognitive behavioural therapy

However, such treatments may have limited effectiveness, especially in more severe cases of fibromyalgia.

In addition, long-term use of painkillers, sedatives and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) lead to side effects and the aggravation of the patients’ condition [2].

Here's the good news.

There is growing evidence that infrared heat therapy is effective in treating fibromyalgia-induced pain and symptoms. 

How does Infrared Heat Therapy help?

Heat Therapy

Heat therapy has been found to reduce pain intensity, number of tender points, and overall fibromyalgia impact on various aspects of life*. 

*Physical functioning, work status, depression, anxiety, sleep, pain, stiffness, fatigue and wellbeing

Heat therapy is effective because it treats a wider body surface and therefore targets multiple pain locations at once.

 

This makes it suitable for treating widespread pain in fibromyalgia patients [3].

The benefits of heat therapy are amplified further by infrared therapy.

 

Infrared radiation is a type of radiant energy that's invisible to human eyes but that we can feel as heat.

 

This heat penetrates as deep as 4cm into the skin [4], augmenting the effects of heat therapy.

 

For decades, people have been frequenting infrared saunas to enjoy the healing benefits of infrared heat therapy.

There is now growing scientific evidence that infrared saunas are effective for fibromyalgia as well. 

Waon therapy (soothing warmth therapy), which uses infrared saunas, was found to significantly reduce pain and other symptoms in fibromyalgia patients [5].

Studies have also shown that infrared heat therapy reduces pain and stiffness in patients with conditions similar to fibromyalgia (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis) [7].

Combining infrared sauna therapy with underwater exercise greatly reduced pain & symptoms, and improved the quality of life in fibromyalgia patients, in both the short and long term [6]. 

In patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, repeated sauna sessions reduced fatigue, pain, appetite loss, and subjective complaints, as well as had a relaxation effect [8].

There is thus strong reason to believe that infrared heat therapy is effective in reducing pain and symptoms, and improving the overall quality of life of fibromyalgia patients.
