Improving the symptoms of CFS/ME and long COVID with The Perrin Technique London

The Perrin Technique

Many patients recovered from COVID-19 quickly and easily; however, many millions of lives across the world were lost due to the disease. In between, some patients recovered from the virus; however, the symptoms did not completely disappear. The long-term effects of COVID-19, also known as long COVID, are complicated, and scientists across the world are researching the topic in search of a universal method of diagnosing and treating the symptoms related to this disease.

The symptoms of long COVID

There are millions of patients who feel as if they have not fully recovered from COVID-19 and suffer from long COVID. Long COVID has been defined as health problems that persist more than a month after the infection, and for some people, it can change their life. Some patients see improvements over a few weeks, others over a few months, whilst some still suffer.

Tiredness, fatigue, shortness of breath, persistent coughing, cognitive dysfunction and sleep disturbances are common symptoms reported by patients suffering from long COVID. Some patients experience fever and flu-like symptoms, whilst others are bed-bound for days. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to diagnose long COVID; it does not show up as an abnormality on blood tests, CT scans, MRIs or physical examinations, which can be disconcerting to most patients. Across the world, the scientific community is working to understand the symptoms and treat patients so that they can get their lives back on track. Studies show that one in five infected adults has experienced symptoms of long COVID; this means millions of patients have been affected.

Similarities of long COVID with CFS/ME

Here at Rakhee’s Osteopathy, we quickly recognised that the symptoms of long COVID are similar to that of patients suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME). For many years here at Rakhee Osteopathy, we have been helping patients manage the symptoms of CFS/ME with The Perrin Technique London. The Perrin Technique London is an osteopathic massage technique that can be used to diagnose and manage CFS/ME. We realised that since the symptoms of long COVID and CFS/ME are similar, The Perrin Technique should have a similar effect on patients suffering from either disease. Since then, we have been using The Perrin Technique London to help patients suffering from long COVID to manage their symptoms more effectively. We use osteopathic massage techniques to increase blood and lymph flow around the body; this can promote better circulation and remove toxins from the body more effectively so that the organs can function correctly. Over time, this process will help you improve your health and well-being and combat the symptoms you are suffering from.
