14 | ghp Private Healthcare Awards 2017 Best Osteopathic Specialists - Greater Manchester PHA17002 Established in 1984, the Perrin Clinic has been providing osteopathy of the highest quality to the region for over three decades. The clinic has expanded with the establishment of Perrin’s Corner Whole Health Clinic which now provides the best complementary treatments for body and mind at a reasonable cost for those wishing to recover from health problems as naturally as possible. Since the Nineties, The Perrin Clinic has been dedicated to helping all those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome /Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, (CFS/ME) and Fibromyalgia using The Perrin Technique tm. This method of diagnosis and treatment was developed because of a chance discovery in 1989 during the clinical practice of a Manchester osteopath, Clinic Director Dr Raymond Perrin. This osteopathic system of manual treatment alleviates many of the symptoms of CFS/ME. Its effectiveness was tested using two separate clinical trials. The first examined the change in the symptoms following a year of treatment. The second repeated the first study and used MRI scanning, to examine further the possible mechanisms of the improvement. Dr Perrin’s research at the University of Salford, in conjunction with the University of Manchester, has provided strong evidence that CFS/ME involves a disturbance of the drainage of toxins from the brain and muscles. The osteopathic treatment developed by Raymond Perrin aims at manually stimulating the lymphatic drainage and improving the health and function of the muscles and brain. It has been statistically validated in both clinical trials, emphasising the need to focus future research on the biomechanical aspects of this disorder. Alongside his work at the clinic, Dr Perrin has published papers in leading international journals. He has lectured extensively at major international conferences plus regularly lectures throughout the UK to CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia patient groups and the medical profession on Osteopathic treatment of CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia. His bestselling book, The Perrin Technique: How to beat CFS/ME, was published by Hammersmith Press, London in 2007. At the clinic Dr Perrin is ably supported by his wonderful team who are all proud to have won this prestigious award. It means a great deal for all their hard work in not only treating CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia, but in the mother and baby clinic, and treating sports injuries and occupational strains plus helping patients recover from all manner of trauma life has to throw at them.
