Post-Exertional Malaise, Long Covid, and 'Exercise-based rehabilitation programmes'
Show Notes

We have heard anecdotally that Long Covid 'rehabilitation' is being outsourced to independent gym chains, personal trainers, and leisure centres.

While this is fully understandable given the huge demand on NHS resources, we feel it is unacceptable given that these fitness instructors will not have received any training on Post-Exertional Malaise.

A large chunk of Long Covid patients are experiencing PEM - the key defining characteristic of ME/CFS and the reason exercise is not recommended for ME/CFS patients.

Update your knowledgebase on PEM and this type of energy-limiting disease. Sign up for our training.
