Relieve the pain caused by fibromyalgia with the help of Winback technology.
Winback Medical has developed a specific procedure that responds to the problems present during the treatment of fibromyalgia. Thanks to their technological advances (touch&start, FixPads, Lowpulse…), Winback Medical is able to respond to the needs of the patients during their treatment for fibromyalgia. The aim of Winback therapy is to relieve pain by producing long lasting currents that pass through the body via an active electrode and a passive electrode. The therapist uses the return plate in a prone position for this type of treatment.
What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia or fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a disorder characterised by a state of chronic muscular pain, which can be extensive or localised to particular parts of the body. It presents itself in allodynia and asthenia (fatigue) that can become persistent and debilitating. Although it has been considered a syndrome for a long time, fibromylagia is now considered a disorder.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia can present itself in different forms of chronic pain such as blunt pain, widespread pain, sensations of burning, of hitting, of bruising, of squeezing or of pulling. These pains are usually found in the muscles of the skeleton, of the tendons or of the joints. The pain can affect all or part of the body; most frequently it affects the back, the legs and the arms. The symptoms can vary throughout the day, the week, the month and the year.
Treat fibromyalgia with Winback therapy
Guy Everts, a Belgian physiotherapist, used his experience in the treatment of this disorder to adapt the procedure for each one of his patients suffering from fibromyalgia.
