Currently, FMS cannot be cured by any therapy and overall treatment effects are modest at best. According to expert opinion, the aims of therapy are the preservation or improvement of daily functioning and coping with symptoms and disabilities. Coping with symptoms includes both the acceptance of symptoms and of some limitations (e.g. hard physical work) as well as continous self-management (physical activity, stress management) to reduce the impact of the symptoms. Therefore the patient has the major task in FMS therapy[1, 24].
