"Maybe It's Fibro?” Treatment and Management
We recently conducted a 1-hour, live, interactive webinar, "Maybe It's Fibro?" with Daniel J. Clauw, MD Professor of Anesthesiology, Medicine (Rheumatology) and Psychiatry at the University of Michigan (UM). The webinar reviewed the common symptoms of fibromyalgia and focused on treatment and management techniques (Note: Webinar discusses overall treatment and management, not details on specific medications).
Dr. Clauw serves as Director of the Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center at UM. Since moving to UM in 2001, Dr. Clauw has been committed to clinical care and research in overlapping conditions such as fibromyalgia and interstitial cystitis. Dr. Clauw is an internationally known expert in chronic pain, especially in regards to the central nervous system and its contributions to chronic pain states. His ongoing work also includes conditions such as low back pain, osteoarthritis, vulvodynia, endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome, and temporomandibular joint disorder.
