Abstract:

The aim of this study was to assess the kinematics [aspects of motion apart from considerations of mass and force] disorder of gait in men with fibromyalgia.

We studied 12 male with fibromyalgia and 14 healthy men. Each participant of the study walked five trials along a 18.6-m walkway.  Fibromyalgia patients completed a Spanish version of Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire.

Significant differences between fibromyalgia and control groups were found in velocity, stride length, and cadence. Gait parameters of men affected by fibromyalgia were impaired when compared to those of healthy group due to bradykinesia [abnormal slowness of movement].

According to previous studies to assess gait variables in female patients, the male with fibromyalgia also showed lower values of velocity, cadence, and stride length than healthy group but not reported significant differences in swing, stance, single, or double support phase.
