What is fibromyalgia syndrome?
Fibromyalgia syndrome is defined by the American College of Rheumatology as chronic widespread pain and tenderness in specific tender points characterized by muscular tenderness, pain, fatigue, and cognitive difficulties.
Until now, the only treatments approved by the FDA for treating fibromyalgia are the antidepressants duloxetine (Cymbalta) and milnacipran (Savella), and the anti-seizure medicine pregabalin (Lyrica). But did you know that pharmaceutical interventions only work for about 10% of fibromyalgia patients while carrying the risk of several serious side effects like nausea, headaches, and increased suicidal thoughts?
The FibroLux is the first and only therapEUTIC laser to be cleared by the FDA for adjunctive use in providing temporary relief of pain associated with fibromyalgia.

Based on research studies, it is recommended to treat at least 2 days per week using the FibroLux in conjunction with an aerobic exercise program. As the patient’s condition improves, they may find it easier to exercise due to the overall reduction in pain.

How It Works
The FibroLux’s advanced software guides clinicians to the 18 fibromyalgia tender points on the body. After evaluation, patients will rate their pain at each tender point; most patients experience between 3-5 tender points at a time rated above a 3 on the pain scale.
To treat tender points, the doctor holds the FibroLux device up to each tender point and the pre-programmed protocol delivers pain-relieving laser therapy for the recommended 2-minute time period per tender point.
The average treatment time ranges from 6-10 minutes a session, depending on the severity of your patient’s case. Treatment is non-invasive, drug-free, and results can be felt immediately.
what patients and experts say
“I’m a skeptic. But I’ve noticed the pain and the tenderness is much less. When you feel better, you do more. I’m really excited about this for everyone else who has it. Up until this there isn’t anything else to relieve fibromyalgia.”Donna Penner
“With the FibroLux, we are seeing patient pain decreasing almost immediately. They’ll have a pain level 8 of 10 at their tender points, when we’re done it drops to a 4. We’ve found a combination of both laser and the ability to exercise is really beneficial”
“I was amazed how a short session of FibroLux treatment can make such a difference in my patients’ pain level. My patients were amazed too.”
