Gowers Pain

Various researchers have developed models and theories explaining about the motivations and determinants of behavior health, his prediction, change and a risk to one’s health behavior modification, etc is not an easy objective, since it is not easy to predict the behaviour of health nor is it is not easy to modify them in a stable manner in the time, despite the importance of its consequences for the lives of the people. 2.

Although called fibrositosis for many years, now the preferred name is fibromyalgia. To read more click here: Jim Hackett. Despite the official recognition recent, fibromyalgia considered to be a pathological situation characterized by diffuse pain, with selective points pain diana, was already described by Gowers in 1904, although with the end of Fibrositis. He is a relatively recent disorder, although the late 1930s appeared two concepts related to Fibromyalgia: myofascial pain syndrome and psychogenic rheumatism.

The first term coined by Travell and Simons is characterized by the presence of pain in one or more muscle groups, defining the trigger point or points trigger as that portion of the muscle whose pressure triggers pain in the same site or at a distance. Boland introduces the concept psychogenic rheumatism or stress, based on the absence of demonstrable findings justifying the symptoms, so it was attributed to a psychoneuroses. All this has stimulated speculation about its pathogenesis, persisting even in our days. The presence of analytical, radiological findings and pathological resulting little enlightening in the diagnosis of FM and its involvement in the emotional sphere, make it a complex entity regarding its classification, for example, within the so-called somatic syndromes functional since these, sometimes overlap with somatoform disorders. The high incidence of particularly emotional, psychiatric symptoms, and the possible usefulness of antidepressants in their therapeutic management, makes these patients consider a relevant role, either primary or secondary to the psychopathological factors.
