Forward ME Letter:
Covid Rehabilitation

We’re pleased to share with you this Forward ME Letter regarding post Covid Rehabilitation.

The letter is open access so that anyone can send on to services dealing with post-Covid patients, or to challenge inappropriate advice.

 

In order to keep track of where it has been sent, we would ask for you to notify any member of Forward ME if you do send it, or alternatively just notify us so we can send on your behalf.

Further information

As attention is turning to post-Covid rehabilitation we are seeing recurring themes of exercise promotion in line with a deconditioning theory of post viral symptoms.

While in many cases people can be simply “deconditioned” from prolonged bed rest, for which gradual exercise is an appropriate course of action, this blanket message is concerning as it ignores the potential for post viral fatigue syndrome, for which exercise can be extremely detrimental.

As we began to repeatedly challenge or raise awareness of this issue, we realised it would be beneficial to create a single publication to summarise our concerns and key points. Forward ME worked as a team to create this letter so that we can quickly and easily communicate with services and professionals.
