Volunteers Needed for Fibromyalgia Study at Indiana State University
January  27, 2014

The department of applied medicine and rehabilitation at Indiana State University is seeking volunteers for research concerning a possible new treatment option for people suffering from fibromyalgia syndrome.

The purpose of the study is to investigate the effects of an instrument assisted massage technique on pain levels and the way in which the body processes the feeling of pain. People with fibromyalgia and healthy individuals over the age of 35 with no injuries or chronic conditions are needed.

Eligible persons will be asked to complete questionnaires about their general health and perception of pain. Participants will have their pain perception tested by a small heat device placed on the skin and researchers will perform an instrument assisted light brushing treatment to three different areas. The study consists of one testing session lasting about 1.5 hours.

Interested persons should contact Melissa Wassink, a licensed and certified athletic trainer and a graduate student in Indiana State's athletic training program, at 585-615-8142 or mwassink@sycamores.indstate.edu
