[JAN. 25, 2005]  Jan Dickerson, B.S., CWT, certified strength trainer and yoga instructor, will address the Feb. 9 meeting of the ALMH Fibromyalgia Comfort Group.

During her demonstration, Dickerson will focus on multiple methods of achieving pain relief, using tai chi, chair yoga and range of motion at the joints. Finding ways to relax and stretch muscles without causing pain or strain is often a concern of fibromyalgia sufferers. No special clothing is necessary for attendance at this session.

Fibromyalgia syndrome is a widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder for which the cause is still unknown.  Fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons -- the soft fibrous tissues in the body. 

The Fibromyalgia Comfort Group meets for approximately one hour in a basement conference room of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital on the second Wednesday of each month. Attendees may bring lunch or come a few minutes early and buy lunch in the ALMH cafeteria.
