The Osteopathic Approach to the Management of CFS/ME

The Perrin Technique™ is based on Dr Perrin’s theory that different stress factors either physical or emotional, allergies and infections lead to an overstrain of the sympathetic nervous system due to a build-up of toxins in the fluid around the brain and the spinal cord. Toxins are meant to drain down the spinal cord and out into the lymph ducts lying along the spine. However in a CFS/ME sufferer these normal drainage points are congested.

The Perrin Technique™ is an osteopathic approach that manually stimulates the fluid motion around the brain and spinal cord. Manipulation of the spine further aids drainage of these toxins and massage of the soft tissues in the head, neck, back and chest direct all the toxins out of the lymphatic system and into the blood, where they are eventually detoxified in the liver.

Eventually with no poisons affecting the brain, the sympathetic nervous system begins to function correctly.

Many sufferers of ME/CFS have already been helped by private osteopathic treatment.   However further research is urgently needed to allow the hundreds of thousands of sufferers in the UK alone who do not have access to private treatment to get an early diagnosis and more effective treatment within the NHS.
