Abstract

Introduction: Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic disease characterized by chronic widespread pain, hyperalgesia and allodynia. Physical exercise is the first choice of non-pharmacological therapy. Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the modified exercises Pilates compared to aerobic exercise in patients with fibromyalgia. Methods: The following outcomes will be assessed in 98 patients by a blinded evaluator at baseline, eight weeks, six and twelve months after randomization: impact of fibromyalgia assessed by the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, pain intensity by Pain Numerical Rating Scale, kinesiophobia by Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia, specific disability by Patient-Specific Functional Scale, functional capacity by the Walk Test 6 minutes, quality of sleep by the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and health-related quality of life by EQ-5D-3L and SF-6D questionnaires. Participants will be randomly divided into Aerobic Group, who will perform aerobic exercise on treadmills and / or stationary bicycle, and Pilates Group, which will hold the modified Pilates exercises, all being treated for eight weeks, twice a week. Expected results: It is expected that the Pilates method of exercise may prove as effective as aerobic exercise in improving clinical outcomes, and that this improvement is maintained in the medium and long term; and that aerobic exercise will be more cost-effective.
