    Abstract

    Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic musculoskeletal disorder characterised by widespread pain, sleep disturbance, headache, stiffness and fatigue. There are a number of potential detrimental factors on bone health in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome including immobility, depression, lack of sunlight and poor nutrition. In this article, the literature relating to fibromyalgia syndrome and bone health is reviewed, and evidence is provided for the potential role of physiotherapy in treating fibromyalgia and maintaining bone health.
