Question: GME - Will this work if I have Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis of spine and neck?
Gluteus Medius program will differ from person to person.
We know that fibromyalgia can cause significant pain and fatigue, and it can interfere with a person’s ability to carry on daily activities. Although fibromyalgia is often associated with fatigue that makes exercise difficult, regular exercise has been shown to be one of the most beneficial treatments for the condition. You must note that there are exercises that you can and cannot do with regards to this condition so it is still best to follow what your doctors and therapist tell you.
Beginning an exercise program is not always easy. It takes time to establish a routine and feel comfortable with it. Initially you may feel more fatigued and sore following an increase in physical activity, but don’t give up! This is normal. Activity-related soreness will diminish over time but this vary from person to person.
Every exercise program is highly individualized. When choosing activities, be mindful of your physical limitations and make adjustments to suit your needs. There are many ways to do this, including reducing the intensity of a movement. For example, if an exercise requires you to jog in place, try marching in place instead.
I suggest that start with aerobic activities (walking, swimming/water aerobics, running, bicycling, etc.) These activities increase your heart rate and breathing rate, as well as your body temperature so you sweat. These are normal responses to exercise. Typically, aerobic activities lead to the greatest benefits for fibromyalgia symptoms. Think about adding flexibility training and strength training later after your body has adapted to the overall increase in activity. I hope this information has helped you.
