Efficiency of an Optimized Care Organization for Fibromyalgia Patients. The FIMOUV 2 Study

2019-10-03 07:54:44 | BioPortfolio


Fibromyalgia affects 2 to 5% of adults in the general population. Patients describe a combination of symptoms centred around fatigue not induced by exercise and not relieved by rest.

The diagnosis of fibromyalgia is self-perpetuating by the deconditioning, consequence of a reduced muscle mass due to inactivity and periods of prolonged rest.

Thus, it seems fundamental to develop other non-drug approaches: among them, adapted physical activity is recommended by most learned societies because of a good level of evidence (Level 1, Grade A). The question remains, however, whether simple advice to resume physical activity is sufficient (routine care with medical assessment at 3 months) or whether a physical activity supervised inside and outside the hospital is not more relevant.


In order to set up an optimal patient path within the Group of hospitals of Loire territory, the working group composed of doctors from different specialities of the department considered it important to carry out a randomised study evaluating the effectiveness of a healthcare organisation combining:

- an adapted and supervised physical activity intervention (1 month hospital initiation then 2 months in town)

- therapeutic education sessions for the patient with motivational interviews Compared to usual clinical practice (adapted physical activity adapted in autonomy at home + therapeutic patient education sessions with motivational interviews).
