The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Therapy service offers assistance in managing patterns and levels of activity and rest to maximise function, but avoid increases in symptoms. Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) is used during therapy as this is the most up to date evidenced based practice.
The service can offer patients advice and guidance on the following; graded exercise therapy, rest/relaxation, sleep management, work/educational advice and help with managing relapses and setbacks. The aim is to provide patients with the knowledge of how to create the best conditions for recovery to occur, and for patients to become an expert in managing their own condition.
This service is led by a senior Occupational Therapist.
