Combat the symptoms of long COVID at our private long COVID clinic
COVID-19 is an infectious viral disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. First detected in China in December 2019, by April 2023 more than 7 million people across the world have been reported as having died from COVID-19. In the UK, figures have reached nearly a quarter of a million. It has had a devastating impact on people's lives, torn apart families, seen businesses become bankrupt, people lose their jobs and livelihoods, and governments in turmoil. Even those who were infected yet recovered have seen significant changes in their health and wellbeing. This is known as long COVID. Long COVID is described by the World Health Organisation or WHO as ongoing symptoms or new symptoms three months after initially being infected by COVID-19, with these symptoms lasting for at least two months with no other explanation.
Symptoms of long COVID
The most common symptom of long COVID is debilitating fatigue that affects your daily activities and prevents you from continuing as you did before. Other common symptoms are those that are very similar to the virus itself, Including fever, aches and pains, coughing and breathlessness. Many patients experience headaches, palpitations, sleep disturbances and mood disorders. These symptoms vary from patient to patient, and the intensity of the symptoms also differ. It is not necessary for patients to have had severe COVID to suffer from long COVID and even patients who did not require hospitalisation may be affected by these prolonged symptoms. If you have been diagnosed with long COVID or you are experiencing similar symptoms then you need to contact our private long COVID clinic London.
The Perrin Technique
The symptoms of long COVID are very similar to those of patients who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS/ME. In comparison to long COVID, much research has been carried out in CFS/ME. One of the theories suggest that CFS/ME occurs as a result of a build-up of toxins in the body due to reduced function of the lymphatic system. Our private long COVID clinic London has been helping patients for many years to deal with the symptoms of CFS/ME. Specialist osteopathic massage techniques known collectively as The Perrin Technique are used to stimulate the body's lymphatic system and encourage better drainage of toxins from the body. In this way over the last two years we have also helped patients suffering from long COVID at our clinic manage their symptoms more easily and even combat their symptoms all together. By visiting our website you can read our patient reviews and find out how much their lives have changed by undergoing The Perrin Technique at our private long COVID clinic London. We will carry out a medical questionnaire to learn more about you, how your health was prior to being infected by COVID-19 and the symptoms that you are experiencing since then. We will then be able to put together an individually tailored treatment plan using The Perrin Technique that will help ease your symptoms, until they have disappeared completely so that you can get your life back on track once more.
