Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for treatment of Juvenile Fibromyalgia

A study published in Arthritis and Rheumatism on November 22, 2011 showed that Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has proven more effective in the treatment of youth with Juvenile Fibromyalgia and than the more common method of Fibromyalgia Education (FE). Juvenile Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal pain syndrome in children characterized by discrete tender points, fatigue, and sleep disturbance in the child. In this study, adolescents between the age of 11 and 17 years old were divided into two therapy groups of Fibromyalgia Education and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for a period of 8 weeks. The results revealed that both treatments were especially helpful in reducing functional disability, pain, and depression. However, CBT was found to be significantly more effective in this study in reducing functional disability than FE.
