Regular price £26.99
Regular price Sale price £26.99
Myalgic encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is a deeply complex and multi-system condition which has historically suffered from a lack of awareness within physiotherapy education and practice. Similarities in presentation between this condition and Long Covid make this comprehensive and evidence-based guide for physiotherapists even more timely and important.
This guide includes an in-depth explanation and history of ME/CFS whilst also describing symptoms, varying degrees of severity, and how to manage ME/CFS in children. It also provides detailed management advice and discussion on how the information can directly inform physiotherapy practice, supplemented with patient case studies.

    Every fields of physiotherapy have their own fundamentals text. This book is the one for physiotherapists working in the field of post-infectious conditions. I am amazed by the depth of the science in this book. This is an exceptional resource that steers away from cookbook recipes and instead focusses on principles for safe and effective physiotherapy. I encourage professional organizations, even outside physiotherapy, and university programs worldwide to integrate this content into training and continued education initiatives to improve quality of care. I encourage researchers to integrate this knowledge when designing research programs in this field.
