Abstract

The optimal treatment approach to musculoskeletal pain in cystic fibrosis remains unclear. This study aimed to examine the effect of a combination of musculoskeletal physiotherapy techniques and massage therapy on musculoskeletal pain and ease of breathing. A single treatment session was associated with reduction in pain and improvement in ease of breathing in adults with cystic fibrosis. Crown
