Factors predisposing to the resort of complementary therapies in patients with fibromyalgia (FM)

By Dimmock S, Troughton PR, Bird HA • www.ProHealth.com • September 5, 1996


This study examined the factors influencing the use of complementary
therapies in patients with fibromyalgia. A postal
questionnaire was sent to 90 patients who had attended a
rheumatology out-patient clinic in West Yorkshire for their
diagnosis or treatment of fibromyalgia. Seventy-one percent of
fibromyalgia patients had used or were using complementary
therapies. Patients who were using complementary therapies
were of a higher socio-economic group (p < 0.001). The most
popular therapy was oral supplementation. The duration of
complementary therapies ranged from 3 months to 26 years
(median = 3). The number of therapies used by each patient
ranged from 1 to 10 (median = 3). The duration of
fibromyalgia was associated with both the duration of
complementary therapies (p < 0.001) and the number of
therapies used (p < 0.05). The most popular source of advice
for the decision to use complementary therapies was from a
magazine (40%). Patients using complementary therapies were
less likely to be satisfied with their current hospital
treatment and turned to complementary therapies in the chance
of relief from their fibromyalgia. The relatively high cost
and lack of information on complementary therapies appeared
to dissuade those patients who chose not to use it.
