Fibromyalgia is a chronic illness characterized by persistent widespread muscle pain with generalized hyperalgesia and allodynia. It can be accompanied by other concomitant symptoms like fatigue, sleep disturbances, musculoskeletal disorders, distress and psychological disorders. This condition is very prevalent. It has been reported to be about 2-5% of the general global population. Fibromyalgia is associated with balance problems and increased fall frequency. The objective of this study was to examine the effects of an 8 weeks dance-movement therapy programme on balance, strength, flexibility and quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia.
