Abstract/Notes

A young woman comes to your practice with a complaint of FS.
Our patient is a 43-year-old female who is seeking chiropractic help with her fibromyalgia. Previously, she sought care from her medical doctor. She is tired of medications that haven’t been of much help. Exercise has helped a little.
Excerpt: Finding the Evidence.
The best strategy for finding the evidence asks the practitioner to use the PICO framework (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) to outline the patient’s most important characteristics:
P:  43-year old-female with fibromyalgia
I:   Exercise
C:  Normal treatment options, NSAIDs
O:  Pain relief
Utilizing a search on PubMed under “Clinical Queries” and searching the terms “aerobic exercise and fibromyalgia” nets you many articles.
