OBJECTIVE: To realize a clarification about fibromyalgia, attempting to consider diagnostic criteria, prevalence, pathophysiology and therapeutic approach. METHOD: A systematic literature search was conducted to select articles about fibromyalgia and connected diseases. The database are Premedline, Medline and Medlineplus. RESULTS: Fifty-eight articles about fibromyalgia and twelve articles about connected diseases were selected to realize this review of literature. DISCUSSION: Fibromyalgia constitutes a syndrome characterized by widespread musculo-skeletal pain, present above the waist and below the waist and in the axial skeleton. Widespread pain must have been present for at least three months. "Spasmophilie", chronic fatigue syndrome and myofascial syndrome represent diseases connected with fibromyalgia: differential diagnosis must be established. Researches related to fibromyalgia suggest a reduction of muscular performances associated with histological and biochemical anomalies. Patients are characterized by shorter and nonrestorative sleep. Psychological, neuroendocrine and central alterations appear often associated with fibromyalgia. The reduction of pressure tolerance and pain thresholds may be linked to the alterations of neuroendocrine substances. Literature recommend a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach in management of fibromyalgia. CONCLUSION: The pathophysiologic mechanisms in fibromyalgia appear multiple and interdependent. With the aim to optimizing treatment, investigations are necessary to determine biochemical repercussions of various therapeutic approaches. [less ▲]

The assessment of human muscle strength is of considerable value in various pathological states with modifications of the performance level. The original concept of isokinetic dynamometry provides a precise and reliable quantification of strength. Identification of underlying deficits in bilateral and reciprocal muscle group relationships plays a great role in the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and muscle injuries. The value of this type of assessment for prevention in uninjured subjects practicing sports at risk is suggested. Rehabilitative use of isokinetic includes muscle strengthening and tendinitis treatment by means of eccentric exercises. [less ▲]

The objectives of the study were to measure the isokinetic strength of the hip flexor-extensor and adductor-abductor muscle groups in unilateral lower limb amputees and to evaluate abnormalities in order to improve the usual rehabilitation programs. Thirty-three patients with unilateral lower limb amputation were included in this study; they served as their own controls, the amputated side being compared to the intact side. Using an isokinetic device, the relative peak torques (N.m by body weight), bilateral asymmetries and agonist/antagonist torque ratios were calculated for the hip flexor, extensor, adductor and abductor muscle groups. A significant reduction of mean concentric relative peak torque measured on the amputated limbs was generally observed when compared to the intact contralateral limb (p < 0.05). The mean percentage of relative peak torque decrease was greater for the extensors than for the flexors (33 +/- 20% and 22 +/- 23%, respectively, at 30degrees/s angular velocity), and for the abductors than for the adductors (23 +/- 22% and 11 +/- 19%, respectively, at 30degrees/s angular velocity). Furthermore, the flexor/extensor torque ratio was significantly increased for the amputated limb (for instance, 1.25 +/- 0.33 versus 1.09 +/- 0.25 for the intact limb at 30degrees/s). The reduction of the abductor/adductor ratio of the operated limb reached the level of statistical significance at 60degrees/s only (1.25 +/- 0.46 versus 1.07 +/- 0.36 for the intact limb). In conclusion, isokinetic testing revealed a significant reduction of the hip stabilizing muscle strength as a consequence of lower limb amputation. The more marked decrease of the strength of the abductor and extensor muscle groups, resulting in imbalances of the agonist/antagonist strength ratios should be taken into account to adapt the conventional rehabilitation programs.

The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of eccentric training models in treating various types of tendinitis and evaluate protection from re-injury when returning to causal activities, Isokinetic eccentric training was administered to 34 patients with chronic tendinitis (9 Achilles, 10 patellar and 15 epicondyllar) with a long duration of symptoms and failure of conventional treatment. Following training which consisted of 20 to 30 sessions of progressive increase of load and speed parameters, a significant reduction of pain indicated by the visual analog scale (average initial value > 6.5, final score less than or equal to 2.5). Seventy four percent of the patients were completely relieved or presented marked decrease in symptoms when returning to sport and occupational activities. and only 12% reported no change in their functional state. At the end of treatment. isokinetic assessment revealed no significant concentric or eccentric peak torque asymmetries between involved and non-involved sides. In comparison with pretreatment ultrasound observations which showed systematic hypoechoic lesions and thickness, 14/34 patients recovered homogeneous tendon structure and normalization of the diameter and 15 presented improvement in echostructure. Our treatment model proposing isokinetic eccentric exercises presents a very satisfactory short-term effect on three different localizations of chronic tendinitis. [less ▲]

Musculoskeletal pain is common in the population. Several pathologies like fibromyalgia (FM), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or spasmophilia are associated with functional myalgia. The etiology of FM remains elusive, but the diagnosis is well established. The criteria for the classification are widespread pain combined with tenderness at 11 or more of the 18 specific tender points sites. The prevalence is 2% in the general population. This article reviews recent data on the pathophysiology and treatment of FM. [less ▲]
