Combat long COVID at our private long COVID clinic


private long covid clinic london

Long COVID which is formally known as post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 affects approximately 65 million people across the world and at least 2 million people here in the UK. It is thought that approximately 50% of patients who are hospitalised for COVID-19 are affected by this condition and approximately 20% of those who did not require hospitalisation are affected by the symptoms of long COVID. Long COVID affects patients of all ages whether or not they had underlying conditions prior to being infected by the virus.


The symptoms of long COVID have been found to affect multiple organ systems and vary from patient to patient. The most common symptom is extreme tiredness or fatigue which does not go away with rest. This prevents the patient from carrying out their daily activities. Other more complicated symptoms include cardiovascular issues such as palpitations and an irregular heartbeat. A prolonged cough can result in respiratory issues including breathing difficulties and shortness of breath. Many patients report cognitive dysfunction including an inability to think coherently, concentrate and even episodes of memory loss. If you are still affected by debilitating symptoms after having tested negative for COVID-19 you may be suffering from long COVID and it is time you speak to our private long COVID clinic London.


The Perrin Technique


Here at Rakhee Osteopathy we have been helping patients who are suffering from long COVID for the last 2 years by treating it similarly to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS/ME. CFS/ME is another complicated multisystemic disorder that has very similar symptoms to that of long COVID. We use The Perrin Technique at our private long COVID clinic London for patients who are suffering with CFS/ME and we believe that the same technique can have a beneficial impact on patients suffering from the symptoms of long COVID.


At our private long COVID clinic London we can put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. We will listen to your symptoms, assess their severity and let you know how The Perrin Technique can help you. The Perrin Technique uses osteopathic massage techniques to remove toxins from the body. By removing toxins from the body that may have built up as a result of the virus we believe that we can improve the function of the organ systems, combat the symptoms of the condition and help promote better health and wellbeing. We will encourage you to maintain a nutritious diet and a healthy lifestyle. Although fatigue may be an issue we will show you simple exercises that can help build up your strength and stamina. We will also teach you simple massage techniques that you are able to carry out by yourself or with the help of a friend or loved one at home. Together with regular osteopathy sessions at our private clinic we hope to be able to combat your symptoms soon. This may take several months, however if you are compliant and are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle we should be able to see an improvement very soon.
