Exercise and Fibromyalgia
This videotape is for fibromyalgia patients who want to get started in an exercise program. I know that most fibromyalgia patients don't want to exercise, but eventually their doctor or other patients persuade them that they should "give it a try." As medical director of the Oregon Fibromyalgia Group, I have treated over two thousand fibromyalgia patients in the past fifteen years. My enduring impression of patients who achieve a sustained improvement, is that they all exercise two to four times a week. Furthermore, they have made regular exercise a priority in their weekly schedule, not an after thought - "if they have time." Dr. Robert Bennett
Dr. Sharon Clark is an expert on exercise in fibromyalgia patients. In this video, she shares her experience in developing a stretching routine, the first element of any effective exercise program. The tape features three fibromyalgia patients performing Dr. Clark's stretching exercises under the supervision of a professional instructor.
"I strongly endorse this video to anyone with fibromyalgia who wants to get active once again. Learning how to stretch correctly helped prepare me for more vigorous exercise and made my tight muscles begin to relax." Loren Porter, Director Rocky Mountain FMS/CFS Support Foundation
"I would highly recommend this stretching video for fibromyalgia patients. I appreciated the attention given to proper execution of each exercise and cautions for modifications by beginners." As reviewed in the FMS Ohio Newsletter by Carol Todd, a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor
