The benefits of The Perrin Technique London for the management of CFS/ME
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known more commonly as CFS/ME, is a highly debilitating disease that can affect patients of all ages. CFS/ME has been seen in patients as young as five years old and can commonly be found in elderly patients. CFS/ME affects patients from all walks of life; it can affect patients who are young and healthy as well as those who suffer from other underlying diseases. CFS/ME is described as persistent fatigue that lasts for more than six months without any known cause. There are many symptoms of CFS/ME, and they vary from patient to patient, making it a difficult disease to diagnose or treat.
Symptoms of CFS/ME
The most common symptom of CFS/ME is persistent fatigue, as the name suggests. This can affect the patient’s daily activities and even leave them bedridden. Aches and pains in the muscles and joints as well as headaches and other flu-like symptoms are very common. Many patients suffer from cognitive problems such as memory loss, difficulty concentrating, sleep disturbances and a lack of coordination.
Research suggests that there is a wide range of possible causes for these symptoms, including hormonal disturbances, immune system dysfunction, viral infections, such as COVID-19, bacterial infections and abnormalities in the nervous system. Patients who were infected by COVID-19 have exhibited similar symptoms several weeks or even months after recovering from the infection, and this has been termed Long COVID. Long COVID also occurred in patients who were infected by the Epstein-Barr virus.
The Perrin Technique
If you are suffering from such worrying symptoms and are unsure as to how you can manage your symptoms, you need to speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy and find out about The Perrin Technique London. The Perrin Technique London has been used to treat patients with CFS/ME for the last few decades. It was first developed in the 1990s after Dr Raymond Perrin inadvertently treated a patient with CFS/ME in 1989 using osteopathic massage techniques. Dr Perrin developed The Perrin Technique London to diagnose CFS/ME and alleviate the symptoms using spinal and cranial osteopathic massages that improve fluid flow in the central nervous system with the aim of removing toxins from the cerebrospinal fluid.
As it has been found to help patients with CFS/ME manage their symptoms more effectively, The Perrin Technique can also be used in the management of symptoms of Long COVID. Speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy, and let us put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. We will note your symptoms, analyse your medical history and look for signs of CFS/ME or other post-viral fatigue syndromes such as Long COVID.
With a positive diagnosis, we can help you manage your symptoms successfully and get your life back on track very soon. The Perrin Technique is not designed to combat your symptoms immediately; however, little by little, we can help you alleviate them and enjoy a better quality of life.
