The purpose

The main aims of this preliminary research are to determine if combined self-soft tissue therapy (SSTT) alongside an established 6 week FMS Coping Skills Programme (FCSP) is a feasible and acceptable treatment approach for FMS. All participants on the six week FCSP will be randomly allocated to a control (FMS Coping Skills Programme) or intervention group (FMS Coping Skills Programme plus SSTT). All participants will be assessed for outcome measurements at the start of the feasibility study, at six weeks and three months after completion. This feasibility study hypothesis is that the SST approach will be acceptable to FMS patients and that the combined 6 week FCSP (hands off) and SSTT (hands on) will be beneficial. This feasibility study will inform a larger randomized controlled trial (RCT) on this combined treatment approach to FMS.
