Most Fibromyalgia Treatments Not Supported by High-Quality Evidence

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Most therapies now available for fibromyalgia are not backed by high-quality evidence for their effectiveness in reducing pain or improving quality of life (QOL), according to a new research review.

“Although the certainty about the effectiveness of these therapies is high, their effect sizes may not be clinically meaningful to patients,” he added. “It should be considered by clinicians in the decision-making process and discussed with their patients.”
