Introduction: Fibromyalgia (FM) is a non-inflammatory, rheumatic and chronic syndrome of idiopathic origin, characterized by generalized pain, stiffness, headache, among others. The etiology of FM is unknown and there is no specific treatment, however, therapeutic proposals are being adopted and evaluated. Among them, we can mention aquatic kinesiotherapy, which consists of physical exercise programs with resistance conducted in a heated pool. Objective: The present study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of aquatic kinesiotherapy as a therapeutic intervention for FM, using the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (QIF). Methodology: Articles were selected from the following databases: PubMed, Bireme Medline, Chocrane Library, Scinece Direct and PEDro Base. After applying the exclusion criteria, 6 articles were included in the study. Results: After extracting data from these articles, it was observed that aquatic kinesiotherapy is an effective therapy in the treatment of fibromyalgia, as well as other treatments used in research.
