The effective management of CFS/ME with The Perrin Technique

The Perrin Technique

CFS/ME is a chronic disease that affects multiple systems in the body, resulting in a range of debilitating symptoms that can prevent patients from carrying out their daily activities. Often found to begin after a viral infection or stress trigger, the symptoms of CFS/ME include fatigue, aches and pains in muscles and joints, sleep disturbances, gastrointestinal issues, cognitive malfunction and autonomic abnormalities. Patients can even find themselves in a wheelchair or bedbound.

The pathophysiology of CFS/ME is still a mystery, and there are no definitive criteria for diagnosis or treatment. Despite the advances in modern research and technology, CFS/ME remains the blackhole of medicine. Many patients with COVID-19 went on to develop persisting symptoms that resemble those of CFS/ME.

How we can help you manage CFS/ME more effectively

Here at Rakhee Osteopathy, we will use our knowledge and expertise to help ease your symptoms and improve your quality of life with individually tailored osteopathic treatment. This treatment is known as The Perrin Technique. The Perrin Technique is used in the diagnosis and management of the symptoms of CFS/ME and other similar diseases. We can provide a positive diagnosis of your symptoms in comparison to GPs and other healthcare practitioners who use a process of elimination.

To ease your symptoms, we will use gentle, manual massage techniques that increase blood and lymph flow, stimulate the lymphatic system and encourage toxins to be removed from the body. At the same time, this osteopathic massage may increase the range of movement of your joints, thereby improving mobility and making the pain more manageable.

Whether you are being treated by a general practitioner or looking for an alternative to traditional medicine, come to Rakhee Osteopathy and learn about the benefits of osteopathic therapy and how we can begin to manage your symptoms.

Our osteopath will take a full case history to learn more about you, understand your symptoms and look for lifestyle factors or triggers that may be worsening your condition. Our osteopath will assess your recent medical reports and conduct a physical examination to determine the extent of your condition. Our osteopath will then be able to create a treatment plan of massage techniques, which will be done at our clinic at regular intervals to help you manage your symptoms. Furthermore, we will show you a few simple exercises that you can comfortably do at home.

Speak to our team at Rakhee Osteopathy today to find out more about the role of The Perrin Technique in the management of CFS/ME and see how we can help you improve your quality of life very soon. Visit our website, book a consultation or speak to us in person. We understand that some patients may find themselves confined to wheelchairs or beds; therefore, we can organise home visits where necessary. With The Perrin Technique, you can have hope that you will manage your symptoms effectively and soon get your life back on track.
