I have Long Covid, can you help?

I have Long Covid, can you help?

Many people who contracted and suffered from Covid19, continue to suffer from symptoms. These include lasting and debilitating fatigue, brain fog, loss of energy etc. and are indicators commonly associated with M.E.

One technique that osteopaths use to help M.E. sufferers is The Perrin Technique.

What is the Perrin Technique?

Basically: The Perrin technique is a validated diagnosis and therapeutic set of treatments that helps people with M.E./Fibromyalgia and even Long-Covid.

The rationale for its use is the recognition that different stress factors, whether infectious (like post Viral/Covid) allergies, emotional or physical stress lead to an overstrain of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight). This may be caused by a build of neuro-toxins within the fluid surrounding the brain and spine. This sympathetic nervous system dysfunction may cause Long-Covid.

Is there a Diagnosis? Yes!

The diagnostic signs using Perrin have been tested and supported by the rigor of an NHS controlled trial, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ Open) in November 2017.
