Thursday May 26th Teleconference on Myofascial Trigger Points

In honor of Fibromyalgia Awareness Month, I have been invited to speak on myofascial pain in fibromyalgia. The agenda will include myofascial trigger points, their involvement in fibromyalgia, symptom referral patterns, why it is important to understand more about these peripheral pain generators specifically in FM, what they are, the different types, perpetuating factors, treatment, and self care.

Title: Teleconference: Celeste Cooper on Myofascial Pain
Date: This Thursday, May 26, 2011
Time: 11:00am Pacific; 2:00pm Eastern; 1:00pm Central; 12:00pm Mountain
This is a Phone + Web Simulcast

To call in dial (503) 290-5016 PIN Code: 783111#

To visit live on the web:
Sponsor: The Oregon fibromyalgia Support Group
Moderator: Tamara Robinson Staples.

Hope to see you there.

Bovine thyroid supplement capsule is heavily needed to cure and eliminate the demons of thyroid and hence bovine can cure it for all age groups. It builds the metabolism gradually providing body the chance to act and build hormonal strength and bring the life style of the patient to normal.
