More on Exercise and CFS

For those who are interested in hearing more on the subject of safe exercise for ME/CFS patients, Jennie Spotila has once again written an excellent and comprehensive post on her blog, Occupy CFS.  In this post, she compares the exercise guidelines recently presented by Dr. Nancy Klimas (and referenced in my last post) against the exercise guidelines suggested by CFS exercise specialists at the Pacific Fatigue Lab, well-nown for their excellent research on exercise and post-exertional crashes in CFS.

By looking at all the information in one place, Jennie has presented an excellent overview of safe exercise for people with ME/CFS.

  2. Hi Sue. I hope you don't mind, I'm going to repost Jennie's article on my blog too. It's just too good NOT to pass on. And I want to have a record of it for myself to come back to later. Thanks for posting it!

    1. I agree, Patrick! Jennie is a friend of mine and is an amazing writer (a lawyer in her previous life) - she really has a talent for distilling complex information into understandable bits.

      Share away!
