Physiotherapy is one of the basic treatments to help improve the quality of life of patients with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, by considerably alleviating the symptoms of the disease. It can be of great importance in controlling the pain that these pathologies cause to patients and in addressing most of the pathologies that may appear associated.
On the other hand, thanks to this specialty, it is possible for the patient to significantly reduce the pharmacological treatment that at first is essential to relieve their pain. This is of enormous benefit, since these long-term treatments can lead to problems of a very diverse nature and severity (as an example, mentioning the harmful long-term effects that anti-inflammatories produce on the stomach and liver).
Objectives of the Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Service
The main objective of Physiotherapy in Dwarka is undoubtedly to improve the quality of life of people affected by FM and / or CFS.

They are a series of gentle and progressive exercises and stretches that seek to improve the physical condition, mobility, and muscle tone of patients.
Given that not all members have the same physical condition or the same associated problems, performing the exercises in the table is valued in each case.
They are performed both in groups twice a week in the Association, as well as individually, in which case the physiotherapist in Dwarka prescribes the exercises individually to be carried out on their own, according to the needs of each patient. Part of these individual exercises, especially those aimed at improving the patient’s aerobic capacity, are offered to be carried out in the Gymnasium that the Physiotherapy centre in Dwarka has.
Twice a week, a series of exercises for muscle toning, stretching and relaxation are performed in a hot pool (approx 25ºC).
Two enormous advantages of working in the water are the muscle relaxation that occurs in this environment and the fact of being able to perform exercises that would not be possible out of the water.
Individual sessions of an approximate duration of 1 hour are also held. During these sessions, the individualized assessment of each patient is made possible, and the adaptation of the appropriate treatment to each case to get the maximum benefits from it.

In these sessions manual therapies are used fundamentally.
Monitoring of the Patient in Coordination with other Professionals
When a patient attends the physiotherapy service in Dwarka, a diagnostic-therapeutic unification is carried out between the different professionals who deal with his problem: in order to obtain an idea of the degree of disability to which the person affected by the pathology he suffers may be subjected, The professional collects all those data that may influence the general state of the person (plates and reports from other professionals that provide information on possible associated pathologies, symptoms, physical capacity, how they carry out activities of daily living,…).
After conducting a physical examination and evaluating the data collected, Physiotherapist in Janakpuri develops an appropriate treatment plan for each patient, setting goals to achieve.
