Abstract

Some abnormalities related to cardiorespiratory and metabolic system have been evidenced in Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). However, researches studying the association between these abnormalities and clinical manifestations of FMS are few. Moreover, among different types of treatments for FMS, the hydrotherapy has been highlighted for its numerous benefits. The objective of the present study is to investigate the effects of hydrotherapy on the cardiorespiratory system and clinical manifestations in women with FMS. Women diagnosed with FMS will take part in the study, randomized into trained (TG) and control (CG) groups. Participants will be submitted to evaluation of the cardiorespiratory and metabolic variables, cardiovascular autonomic control, baroreflex sensitivity at rest and pressure pain threshold. Questionnaires to assess the level of physical activity, the impact of fibromyalgia, quality of life, sleep quality, clinical symptoms of depression and anxiety will be applied. The TG will be submitted to a 16-week hydrotherapy program, 2 times per week, about 1 h per session. The Shapiro-Wilk test will be applied to test the normality of the data (± = 5%) and then we will determine the proper statistical test for data analysis. (AU)
