ME/CFS & Long Covid
Management of ME/CFS & Long Covid
At Unity Physiotherapy & Wellbeing we offer services to help people with ME/CFS & long covid. Physiotherapy & coaching are combined to help people manage and change ME/CFS & long covid symptoms in Lincoln, or anywhere virtually in the UK. Ann has specialised in pain and neurology and has many years of experience of helping people change and manage fatigue & pain. Alongside offering services for people with persistent pain, ME/CFS & long covid, Ann also offers support for people with PoTS (this condition commonly goes alongside ME/CFS, long covid & fibromyalgia). Ann lives with pain & fatigue herself and has learnt to thrive & live well with both.
Best practice is to treat the whole person, working with body and mind which are inextricably interlinked. Following the best available evidence in a way that meets individual needs is important to us at Unity Physiotherapy & Wellbeing. ME/CFS & long covid desperately need better research, it is looking like this is gradually going to happen following covid and Ann endeavours to keep up to date with developing research. Understanding the person, the different possible mechanisms of the symptoms, possible treatment and management options and treating each person as an individual, is important and an essential part of making changes. Your story will always be compassionately heard, Ann understands the importance of this. Working together we can make changes to help you do what you love, live well & thrive again.
