Registered Osteopath
25 Duke Street. Southport, Merseyside, UK. PR8 1JA
Tel: 01704 500905 About the practice: -

The practice was set-up in 1998 in order to offer Southport residents a centrally located osteopathic consulting room. The surgery moved to 25 Duke Street in February 2002 and for the moment has eight steps to the front door, so there is not access for disabled patients. There is also off-road parking for two cars. I enjoy treating patients and all aspects of my work. I specialise in the osteopathic treatment of "ME" or chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as dealing with the musculo-skeletal problems one sees in osteopathic practice, such as low back injuries, neck strains and degenerative conditions.
Surgery Hours:- Monday Wednesday Friday
About Kay Barker: -
I qualified in 1996 from the British School of Osteopathy in London. For two years after graduating I practised as a locum to gain insight into different practice life and eventually decide on where I would settle down. I worked everywhere North of Watford! Then in Southern Spain before deciding to return to Southport, where I was brought up, in order to practise from here. Working as a locum gave me the experience which I felt I needed to set up my own business and decide upon exactly how I wanted to run my own practice. I also work in a group practice at Perrin Hayward Osteopaths, 83 Whittaker Lane, Prestwich. Manchester. This means that I can talk to colleagues and discuss cases, as well as treat a wider cross-section of people.

A PDF version of this document is available. Download PDF now (8 pages /86 KB). More information on using PDF files. C hronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also referred to as chronic fatigue immune deficiency syndrome, is a disabling illness characterized by persistent fatigue accompanied by rheumatologic, cognitive, and infectious-appearing symptoms. Despite intense medical research, there is no known cause for CFS, but it appears to be a heterogeneous disorder which affects multiple systems, including hormonal, neurologic, and immunologic. Because there are no specific diagnostic tests or physical findings for CFS, diagnosis requires knowledge of possible symptoms and a method of exclusion. CFS is likely a spectrum of illnesses sharing a common pathogenesis with varying degrees of fatigue and associated symptoms. Other disorders, such as fibromyalgia, have overlapping symptoms with CFS, suggesting that both diseases may share common physiologic abnormalities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's criteria for diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome require the patient to present with severe fatigue lasting at least six consecutive months, have no definable organic disease, and experience associated physical symptoms.

68. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
It s estimated that as many as half a million people in the United States have chronicfatigue syndrome, which makes it extremely difficult to perform routine

Parents General Health Sick Kids
Sixteen-year-old Samantha is always exhausted. For months she's had swollen glands and weakness. She has difficulty concentrating in school, frequently has headaches, and finds it hard to get out of bed most mornings. Although Samantha's parents suspect she's involved in too many activities, they have also begun to worry because her grades have plummeted and her symptoms have worsened. When Samantha and her parents visit the doctor to try to find out what's wrong, the doctor takes a detailed history of Samantha's symptoms, paying careful attention to how long they have been going on. After a full physical examination and several blood tests, it is determined that Samantha has a condition known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). What Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a noncontagious disease that was first recognized as a physical illness in the 1980s and remains the subject of a great deal of controversy. Even now, as increasing numbers of people are being diagnosed with the disease, there are still many people inside and outside the health professions who doubt its existence or maintain that it's a psychological ailment. But several years of research have confirmed that CFS is indeed a physical illness - just one that's not fully understood. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is estimated that as many as half a million people in the United States have a CFS-like condition.

The M.E./Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Society of Victoria Inc. is a non-profit charitable organisation dedicated to serving the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Community in Victoria and Tasmania. The Society is run entirely by volunteers and relies on donations and membership fees to allow us to continue our valuable work. What is 'Chronic Fatigue Syndrome'? Don't be fooled by the name. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS, also known as M.E. or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) is a serious and debilitating illness that can last for years, and sometimes for life. The latest research suggests that the symptoms of CFS may be caused - at least in part - by a continuing immune response to a real or perceived challenge. Symptoms of CFS include overwhelming exhaustion, both physical and cognitive, memory and concentration impairment, an intense 'flu like feeling, muscle pain, sleep disturbance, headaches, disturbance of balance and other symptoms. There is no effective treatment for CFS, so correct management of the illness plays an important role. This is where the Society can offer guidance. Also see our

    Chronic Fatigue Sufferers A personal word to
    every CFS, CFIDS and Fibromyalgia sufferer
    from Dr. Poesnecker I realize that many, if not most of you have been told there is no effective treatment for your condition. That you must just "learn to live with it." Our experience has demonstrated otherwise. The underlying causes of these conditions are known and so also are effective treatments. While we have no magic cure, with the cooperation of the individual, we have been able to return thousands of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFIDS and Fibromyalgia patients to active productive lives by the methods we have developed and taught over the last forty-five years. We can also help you if you are ready to start living once again. Below you will find links to many articles describing the methods we use to help individuals successfully overcome these devastating and humiliating conditions. Once you have had an opportunity to puruse these, the next step on your road to recovery is to take an Adrenal Stress Index test (ASI) from DiagnosTech labs of Seattle, Washington. We have tried many other labs, but this is the only one whose results have been really useful in helping our patients. Concurrent with taking the ASI test you should be studying

Here is the first draft Clinical Practice Guidelines on the evaluation of prolonged fatigue and the diagnosis and management of chronic fatigue syndrome Produced by a Working Group convened by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians This document was produced as an exposure draft by a Working Group seeking constructive criticism from doctors and other health professionals, learned professional bodies, people with CFS and their carers, and any others with an interest in this condition. The Working Group received a great deal of feedback from health professionals and people with CFS, but did not produce another draft of the guidelines.

    POTS and CFS
    POTS has been proposed as a mechanism for symptoms of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in a series of adult patients. POTS and CFS may share a common pathophysiology particularly in the young . Recently, a review of patients with delayed orthostatic hypotension (delayed POTS) demonstrated a high degree of association with chronic fatigue. Our preliminary data have shown that POTS physiology underlies orthostatic intolerance in the large majority of adolescents with the chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). In those patients we demonstrated loss of heart rate variability consistent with vagal withdrawal, increased blood pressure variability consistent with enhanced modulation of sympathetic tone, and impaired baroreflex with a phase shift causing wide blood pressure swings uncompensated by compensatory HR changes. Preliminary vascular data suggest that these autonomic findings are associated with changes in arterial and venous properties of the lower limbs during orthostasis causing fluid collection in excess of ordinary "pooling" observed in control patients.

Cranton, M.D. Mount Rogers Clinic, Trout Dale, Virginia Mount Rainier Clinic, Yelm, Washington INTRODUCTION A wide variety of symptoms, as listed above, of a seemingly unrelated nature affect widely diverse parts of the body and are postulated in this paper to be caused, at least in part, by overload of the immune system and immunologic dysfunction. Stressed-out and malfunctioning immunity is described as an important and correctable common denominator in all of the above conditions.

    CHRONIC FATIGUE AND IMMUNE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME Multiple symptoms of a seemingly unrelated nature, often misdiagnosed as neurotic, have been shown by Dr. Cranton to be caused by immune system dysfunction, related in part to an increase in body levels of candida albicans and other fungal organisms. Dr. Cranton has observed that treatments which reduce levels of yeast and other fungus in the body and, thus, remove stress from the immune system have been shown to bring improvement to a large majority of patients who have been unresponsive to multiple treatment programs elsewhere. This type of illness is increasingly prevalent and often unrecognized by the medical profession. The most common and incapacitating symptom is profound and prolonged fatigue, without another plausible cause. Depression is commonly present, often severe. Physical examination and laboratory tests seldom point to a definite diagnosis. Incorrect diagnoses often include psychoneurosis, hypochondriasis and endogenous depression. Adverse reactions to many nutritious foods (so-called food allergy) is common, as well as unusual sensitivity to chemical fumes, and respiratory allergy of the hay fever type. Stomach, intestinal, urinary, reproductive, muscle and joint symptoms are common. When seeking treatment, it is important to find physicians and nurses who understand CFIDS and provide a compassionate setting for treatment.
