Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain and extreme tiredness. Symptoms may vary from person to person. The main symptom is pain all over your body. There’s no cure for fibromyalgia, but treatments like painkillers, talking therapies and exercise programmes may help ease some of your symptoms. It’s not clear what causes fibromyalgia. It can start after a stressful event like an injury, illness or the death of a loved one.
In 2013, scientists from institutions in Spain including the Centro de Tecnología Biomédica, also conducted a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial on efficacy of magnetic stimulation for fibromyalgia and found that it may represent a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain and other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.
Low tissue mitochondrial energy production is a cause of Fibromyalgia. As per evidence, one of the reasons for the fatigue experienced in fibro is due to impaired circulation initiated by deficient NO (nitric oxide) levels in the blood. Low NO levels are a direct result of mitochondrial damage. Magnetotherapy has been found to be highly effective in providing mitochondrial repair and it improves the oxygen carrying capability. On a cellular level, Magnetotherapy has been found to reduce hypoxic damage.
