Treatment for Fibromyalgia in Southern California
What is fibromyalgia? It is a disorder that affects the way pain signals are processed in the central nervous system. It often disturbs the body's management of mood, sleep, and energy.
We created the Casa Colina Fibromyalgia Center to help individuals better cope with chronic fibromyalgia pain and fibromyalgia tender points. Casa Colina has a rheumatologist-led team of clinical experts that takes a comprehensive approach to fibromyalgia treatment. They focus on each individual's fibromyalgia symptoms, which can be both physical and psychological.

- Widespread pain

- Tingling skin
- Nerve pain
- Lengthy muscle spasms
- Weakness of the limbs

We can also help individuals navigate the challenges of this disorder with our Fibromyalgia Management Program, an 8-week program that provides aquatic exercise, education, and stress-reduction techniques to improve one's overall sense of wellness.
