Multidisciplinary group programs to treat fibromyalgia (FM) patients

There are three realities that need to be understood by both

clinicians and patients: (1) fibromyalgia is a complex chronic

pain condition and current treatment is palliative rather

than curative; (2) the major aim of treatment is to improve

function, not abolish pain; and (3) a cycle of chronic pain,

stress, and psychological arousal often generates a set of

secondary symptoms. These secondary symptoms provide a

positive feedback loop that is amenable to modification by

cognitive-behavioral techniques. Multidisciplinary group

treatment programs are especially suited to such techniques;

their aim should be to maximize subsequent clinician-patient

interactions. Thus, a current concept of optimal management is

a blend of multidisciplinary group therapy and individualized

clinician-based treatment.
