Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are  medical condition mostly caused by work related occupations and working environment, affecting patients’ muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves and developing over time. A community sample of 73 females and 32 males aged 85 and over underwent a standardised examination at home. Musculoskeletal pain was reported by 57% of those interviewed(1).

      Types of Musculo-Skeletal disorders in elder

1. Osteoarthritis
2. Gout
3. Rheumatoid Arthritis
4. Polymalagia Arthritis
5. Cervical myleopathy and spinal canal stenosis
6. Osteoporosis
7. Low back pain

Fibromyalgia, according to the American College of Rheumatology 1990 Criteria for the Classification of Fibromyalgia in the newly proposed criteria for the classification of fibromyalgia are 1) widespread pain in combination with 2) tenderness at 11 or more of the 18 specific tender point sites(a) as a result in responding to pressure.

                        The Treatment

B. Alternative treatments 
Several types of alternative medicine have some potential for future clinical research. However, due to methodological inconsistencies across studies and the small body of evidence, no firm conclusions can be made at this time. we present here some of alternatives which have played an important role in human history for treatment of Fibromyalgia, according to the DePaul University(231) and Dicle University(232), in review of information regarding the efficacy of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

8. Relaxation
Relaxation therapy, used in many cultures for reduced stress, eliminated body and mind tension for the body to heal itself against the development and for treatment of some diseases, such as Yoga, Tai Chi and meditation, etc,... According to the University Psychiatric Outpatient Clinic, relaxation therapy can be effective in treating fibromyalgia patients, especially if applied early.(255).

Dr. Coppieters I. and colleagues at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, said," Single relaxation session as well as cognitive stress may have negative acute effects on pain modulation in patients with FM, while cognitive stress and relaxation did not worsen bottom-up sensitization in chronic WAD patients and healthy persons"(254).
In deed, Psychological interventions therapies may be effective in improving physical functioning, pain and low mood for adults with fibromyalgia but relaxation therapies remains unclear as the quality of the evidence was very low or low(256).
