What can be done to treat fibromyalgia?

Dr. Manocha has a great deal of experience treating fibromyalgia, and he understands that each patient has a distinct set of needs. He works with you to devise a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle, and he incorporates elements of various treatment paths to help you find relief.

Medications

Medications may play a role in your treatment plan, and they can help address pain, sleep disruptions, muscle tension, and mood. Prescription medications, however, carry a risk of side effects, so every effort is made to find a non-pharmaceutical solution.

Targeted Exercise

Targeted exercise is a powerful treatment for fibromyalgia. Dr. Manocha works with you to create an activity plan that fits your health and any physical limitations, and adjusts your plan as you progress. Stretching, walking, swimming, yoga, tai chi, and gentle strength training are all good options.

Surgery

The Multiwave Locked System® (MLS) laser therapy offers a noninvasive treatment option. Sometimes called cold laser therapy, the platform creates heat deep within your tissue layers, leaving your outer skin comfortably cool. The therapy increases circulation and stimulates cell repair and tissue growth.

Alternative Therapies

Alternative therapies can also help relieve fibromyalgia symptoms. Some men and women find relief through acupuncture, massage, and spinal manipulation. Dr. Manocha is a firm believer in using an integrative approach to treating pain, and he’s more than willing to assist you in exploring alternative therapies.
