Effects of Pool-Based and Land-Based Aerobic Exercise on Women with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Widespread Pain

Summary

This Norwegian study evaluated the efficacy of an aerobic exercise program which was entirely pool based. Eighteen fibromyalgia subjects in a pool-based program were compared to sixteen fibromyalgia subjects exercising on land. Both groups completed the 20-week program, exercising for 60 minutes each week at an intensity to keep the heart rate within 60 to 80 percent of the age-adjusted maximum. The pool-based group trained in water at a temperature of 34 degrees Celsius. The major outcome measure was the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire. The pool-based group significantly improved in terms of stiffness, daytime fatigue, anxiety, and the number of days feeling good. The land-based group showed significant improvements in daytime fatigue and stiffness. There was a significant improvement in the six-minute walk time and cardiovascular capacity in both groups. Apart from a difference in strength, favoring land-based therapy, no significant differences were found between the two groups.

Comments

This is the first study to compare pool therapy with land-based therapy in FM patients. The results suggest both can result in worthwhile improvements, but there may be an advantage to pool therapy in terms of self-reported physical impairment, depression, and anxiety.
