Telecourse: Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia: Putting Your Finger on the Diagnosis (NCME #858)
Dr. Jessica Berman demonstrates a focused, hands-on approach to diagnosing fibromyalgia that includes a physical exam to identify the 18 tender points, which are sensitive and specific to this chronic syndrome in 80% of cases. Once the diagnosis is made, a combination of medications and exercise can help patients with fibromyalgia reduce their symptoms, function better, and enjoy an improved quality of life.
This 60-minute video is now available in the Health Sciences Library in both DVD and VHS formats.
