The Perrin technique for the management of CFS/ME and long Covid


The Perrin Technique in London

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a severely debilitating and devastating disease which can cause healthy young people to become wheelchair bound and unable to do anything for themselves in a short space of time. It is a complicated, multi- system disorder and is sometimes referred to as the ‘black hole in medicine’ despite significant advances and much research being carried out in this field. The aetiology of the disorder remains unknown and there is much debate and confusion surrounding the pathophysiology of the disorder.


Covid-19 and long Covid


Much research has shown that amongst numerous other factors, viruses and other infectious agents such as COVID-19 can have a significant impact on the immune system and result in many of the symptoms associated with CFS/ME. This has been previously seen in patients infected by the acute B19 virus, and similar findings have been recently presented in patients who have been infected with COVID-19, are no longer infected, but are presenting with some symptoms which are similar to those found in CFS/ME. This is now known as long Covid. Much research is being carried out into long Covid, but at the moment very little is known about this disorder, therefore there is little that your doctor or health professional may be able to do to help.


If you are suffering from symptoms of CFS/ME or if you have received a formal diagnosis of the disease, or you are presenting with symptoms of long Covid, then you need to speak to us at Rakhee Osteopathy to find out about the Perrin technique in London. CFS/ME is a complicated disorder and therefore there is still no universal method of diagnosing the disease. The most common symptom is severe fatigue which does not go away with rest. Patients with long Covid have also complained that they feel significantly more tired than they have done prior to being infected with COVID-19. There is no specific medical treatment for the symptoms of CFS/ME, however, the Perrin technique in London has shown that it can help patients manage their symptoms more effectively. As patients with long Covid present many similar symptoms to CFS/ME, here at Rakhee Osteopathy we believe that the Perrin technique in London will help these patients manage their symptoms more successfully too.
