MRI brain scan research at the University of Colorado Boulder makes a strong link between neurological findings and the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. These results may lead to a better understanding of why HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) has been shown to be an effective treatment for this condition.
