Conceptual Model for Physical Therapist Management of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis – Source: Physical Therapy, Feb 25, 2010

  [ 9 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Todd E Davenport, Staci R Stevens, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • February 26, 2010


Fatigue is one of the most common reasons why people consult health care providers. Chronic fatigue syndrome / myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is one cause of clinically debilitating fatigue.

The underdiagnosis of CFS/ME, along with the spectrum of symptoms that represent multiple reasons for entry into physical therapy settings, places physical therapists in a unique position to identify this health condition and direct its appropriate management.

The diagnosis and clinical correlates of CFS/ME are becoming better understood, although the optimal clinical management of this condition remains controversial.

The 4 aims of this perspective article are:

1. To summarize the diagnosis of CFS/ME with the goal of promoting the optimal recognition of this condition by physical therapists;

2. To discuss aerobic system and cognitive deficits that may lead to the clinical presentation of CFS/ME;

3. To review the evidence for graded exercise with the goal of addressing limitations in body structures and functions, activity, and participation in people with CFS/ME; and

4. To present a conceptual model for the clinical management of CFS/ME by physical therapists.
