Wanted: Your physiotherapist recommendations

One of the most common questions we get asked is whether we provide physio services, or if we can recommend an ME-friendly therapist.


As a virtual group we are not set up to provide clinical services. While a few of us do practice privately, we obviously cannot cover the whole of the UK.


It would be impossible and unfair for us to judge every private physiotherapy provider to determine if their approach to ME is appropriate.


This is why we want to reach out to the patient community to get their recommendations of private practitioners, based on personal experience. If you have worked with a physio who had a good understanding of ME, or was willing to learn and work closely with you (which in theory should be all physios!) then please let us know.


We plan to contact the physio first to check they would be happy for their contact details to be shared.


We will not make the list public, but we can then use it for reference if someone contacts us with their location and we can try to get a match for them.


Please be aware that every person with ME is unique, and one treatment that may work for one person may have very different effects for another. You should always monitor your own symptoms and make a personal judgement if the treatment or management programme is best for you.


Finally, if you are a physiotherapist providing private treatment for people with ME please also get in touch, we’d love to connect with you!

I have been having treatment with Sue Capstick at The Bridgeman Centre in Wigan for 17 months and have found it very helpful.
