Covid-19: Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, Long Covid &
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis

Our mission is to educate and inform physiotherapists regarding ME, and to support and advocate for people with ME. 

However, we could not ignore the potential parallels with people recovering from Covid 19 and the importance of spreading the message about appropriate management of people suffering with Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, using the knowledge and understanding we had developed from our work with ME. 

In September 2020 we wrote this blog post reflecting on Covid 19 and its impact on our work.

The resources below are designed to help physiotherapists understand the complications of Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome or Long Covid, how to identify patients who may be developing these syndromes and how to appropriately manage them. We hope physiotherapists can then apply this knowledge to gain a wider understanding of ME.

Covid 19 is new and we are learning every day. We welcome contact from physiotherapists and people recovering from Covid 19, or diagnosed with PVFS / Long Covid, so that we can continue to learn from your experiences.
