Similarities between the management of CFS/ME and Long COVID with The Perrin Technique

Updated: Jan 15, 2023

The Perrin Technique

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS/ME is a devastating multi-system disorder which is characterised by exertional malaise, extreme fatigue and cognitive dysfunction. It affects many millions of patients across the world, however, it is still a mystery and there is no definitive diagnosis or treatment for this disease. Patients of all ages, genders, medical conditions or even good health can be affected by CFS/ME at any stage of their life. There are many patients across the world who are suffering in silence.

During the COVID-19 pandemic many patients who were infected by COVID-19 exhibited the same symptoms or very similar symptoms to CFS/ME after having recovered from COVID-19. Patients reported a change in heartbeat, reduced blood pressure, reduced oxygenation of the brain and a feeling of extreme tiredness which significantly affected daily activities, including family life and career. Research shows that there are similar biological issues between long COVID and CFS/ME. This includes cellular dysfunction, slow metabolism and multi-system inflammation. If left unaddressed, then over time, patients are unable to carry out their daily activities by themselves and eventually can find themselves in a wheelchair or can even become bed-bound.

The Perrin Technique London is an osteopathic technique which is used to diagnose and manage the symptoms of CFS/ME. The Perrin Technique was first discovered in the 1980s after which there has been much research and development in the theory to be able to use it as a method of diagnosing and managing the symptoms of CFS/ME. It includes visual and physical assessment of certain factors or signs to help identify the disease and it includes specialist massage techniques to manage the symptoms of the disease.
