Now Recruiting: Lifestyle Physical Activity to Reduce Pain and Fatigue in Adults With Fibromyalgia

A new study now recruiting at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland continues work led by Dr. Kevin Fontaine, PhD* to investigate “lifestyle physical activity” as a path to alleviating symptoms of Fibromyalgia.

The basic concept - according to the trial listing at ClinicalTrials.gov - is that:

  • “While exercise improves the symptoms of FM, pain and fatigue often prevent individuals from beginning an exercise regimen in the first place. Because of the known benefits of exercise on FM, it is important to find new ways for individuals with FM to increase their physical activity.

  • “Lifestyle physical activity, which involves any type of moderate-intensity activity such as walking, housecleaning, shopping, and gardening, may be more doable than structured exercise for individuals with FM.

  • “Also, lifestyle physical activity accumulated in short bouts over time can be as effective as single exercise sessions in producing health benefits."

Following is the research team's official study announcement, with contact information for those interested in participating.

DO YOU HAVE FIBROMYALGIA?
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University are conducting a research study to look at the effects of a way to increase the physical activity of adults with Fibromyalgia.

If you are physically inactive, and have been told by a physician that you have Fibromyalgia, you may qualify to take part.

Participation involves:

  • Completing a set of assessments,
  • Taking part in group meetings and a home-based physical activity program for 3 months,
  • And completing a 6- and 12-month follow-up assessment.

The study will last 18 months and you will not have to take any medications or change any medications you are now taking for your Fibromyalgia.
