Relaxation and guided imagery in Hispanic persons diagnosed with Fibromyalgia: A pilot study – Source: Family & Community Health, Jul-Sep 2008

By Victoria Menzies, PhD, APRN-BC and Kim Sunny, PhD • • June 18, 2008

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic pain disorder affecting 2% of the population in the United States. Another 16 million Hispanics suffer from generically identified rheumatic diseases that likely include FM.

Because there are few reported studies of Hispanics with FM, a pilot study using a repeated-measures pretest-posttest design investigated the effects of a 10-week mind-body intervention (visual imagery with relaxation) on symptom management.

The change in means from baseline to week 10 demonstrated improvement in self-efficacy for managing pain and other symptoms and functional status.

Visual imagery with relaxation is a mind-body intervention that may be used for symptom management in this population.
