1. Flexibility exercise training for adults with fibromyalgia. (PubMed)

Flexibility exercise training for adults with fibromyalgia. Exercise training is commonly recommended for adults with fibromyalgia. We defined flexibility exercise training programs as those involving movements of a joint or a series of joints, through complete range of motion, thus targeting major muscle-tendon units. This review is one of a series of reviews updating the first review published in 2002.To evaluate the benefits and harms of flexibility exercise training in adults (...) trials.We included randomized trials (RCTs) including adults diagnosed with fibromyalgia based on published criteria. Major outcomes were health-related quality of life (HRQoL), pain intensity, stiffness, fatigue, physical function, trial withdrawals, and adverse events.Two review authors independently selected articles for inclusion, extracted data, performed 'Risk of bias' assessments, and assessed the certainty of the body of evidence for major outcomes using the GRADE approach. All discrepancies

Clinical bottom line There is low quality evidence to support that moderate and moderate to high intensity resistance exercise can be safely performed and is beneficial for women with fibromyalgia to help with pain, tenderness, strength and multidirectional function. This evidence supports the use of exercise in the treatment of fibromyalgia and can help inform treatment decisions. However clinicians must remain mindful that this review was based on evidence deemed low quality and only
