Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia

Physical Therapist Cindy Jarosch discusses the aquatic therapy of Amber, a young lady with fibromyalgia. This chronic condition causes her legs, upper neck, and hands to be very tight and stiff. Amber’s mother is also a fibromyalgia sufferer, and she found that her daily pain and stiffness has been most manageable while utilizing warm water for exercise and rehabilitation. With this knowledge, she led her daughter to the HydroWorx pool at Children’s Hospital in St. Paul, MN. Now Amber is most motivated by running on the underwater treadmill because she is unable to run on land.
