OBJECTIVES: In fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) defined rehabilitation guidelines are yet to be validated. Our aim is to evaluate the efficacy of the Rességuier method (RM) in FMS. METHODS: Forty-one patients were randomly assigned to Interventional (22 pts) and Observational (19 pts) Group (IG and OG). The study lasted 8 months. Patients were assessed at baseline (T0) after a 2-month rehabilitation (T1) and at a 6-month follow-up (T2) (only IG) with SF-36 Physical (PSI) and Mental Synthetic Index (MSI), Regional Pain Scale (RPS), Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), Number Rating Scales 0-10 to measure pain, movement quality, sleep, relax ability, analgesics number/per week. OG patients maintained their lifestyle for the duration of the study. RM aims to obtain patient awareness and control of bodily perceptions, thus reaching a modulation of responses to pain. Therapist controls patient attention and perception by verbal and manual contacts and leads them to perform bodily and respiratory active and conscious movements. RESULTS: In IG, at T1 all items were improved: PSI and MSI (p<0.001 and =0.001), FIQ (p<0.0001), RPS (p<0.001), pain (p<0.0001), movement quality (p=0.001), relax ability (p<0.0001), sleep (p<0.001); analgesics number/per week was reduced (p<0.001). All results obtained at T1, except FIQ, were maintained at T2. In OG at T1 versus T0, no difference in any of the assessed parameters was observed. CONCLUSION: In FMS patients, the rehabilitation with RM improves HRQoL, FMS-related disability and perceived pain, thus reducing the assumption of analgesics.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: In fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) defined rehabilitation guidelines are yet to be validated. Our aim is to evaluate the efficacy of the Rességuier method (RM) in FMS. METHODS: Forty-one patients were randomly assigned to Interventional (22 pts) and Observational (19 pts) Group (IG and OG). The study lasted 8 months. Patients were assessed at baseline (T0) after a 2-month rehabilitation (T1) and at a 6-month follow-up (T2) (only IG) with SF-36 Physical (PSI) and Mental Synthetic Index (MSI), Regional Pain Scale (RPS), Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), Number Rating Scales 0-10 to measure pain, movement quality, sleep, relax ability, analgesics number/per week. OG patients maintained their lifestyle for the duration of the study. RM aims to obtain patient awareness and control of bodily perceptions, thus reaching a modulation of responses to pain. Therapist controls patient attention and perception by verbal and manual contacts and leads them to perform bodily and respiratory active and conscious movements. RESULTS: In IG, at T1 all items were improved: PSI and MSI (p<0.001 and =0.001), FIQ (p<0.0001), RPS (p<0.001), pain (p<0.0001), movement quality (p=0.001), relax ability (p<0.0001), sleep (p<0.001); analgesics number/per week was reduced (p<0.001). All results obtained at T1, except FIQ, were maintained at T2. In OG at T1 versus T0, no difference in any of the assessed parameters was observed. CONCLUSION: In FMS patients, the rehabilitation with RM improves HRQoL, FMS-related disability and perceived pain, thus reducing the assumption of analgesics.
