Men With Fibromyalgia or Chronic Widespread Pain - Effect of Exercise on Symptoms and Body Functions
Men With Fibromyalgia or Chronic Widespread Pain - Effect of Exercise on Symptoms and Body Functions

A controlled randomised trial (CRT). 60 men who fulfil the ACR-criteria for Fibromyalgia or Chronic Widespread Pain (Wolfe 1990) participate in the study.

The main objective of the study is to compare the effect of a graded strength training program and a low intensive pool exercise program.

A controlled randomised trial (CRT). 60 men who fulfil the ACR-criteria for Fibromyalgia or Chronic Widespread Pain (Wolfe 1990) participate in the study.

40 patients (in the city Uddevalla) are randomised into two groups; low intensive temperate pool exercise program, and graded strength training program. The study period is 12 weeks.

20 patients (in the city Alingsås) make a reference group who is asked to continue their normal activities during the study period.

Primary outcomes are fatigue (using the Multidimensional fatigue inventory and VAS for global fatigue)and muscle strength (using Steve Strong, Isobex and the Grippit). Several other self-administered instruments was used.
