Physios for ME formed in 2019 to seek out and share information about biomedical practice in ME, having found that the British approach of Graded exercise therapy recommended by the NHS was resulting in many negative patient experiences.[1]

Aims[edit | edit source]

Physios for ME to educate people about ME, and "stimulate new ideas in line with a biomedical approach" in order to improve physiotherapy for ME patients.[1]

myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.
