Recharge ME

An inspiring and supportive exercise and wellness programme to help overcome chronic pain and fatigue.

Recharge your body and mind: your last stop!

 

Living with a chronic pain or fatigue condition can feel a bit like being in a maze. There's a lot of confusion, uncertainty, loss of direction and dead ends. On average it takes 6 doctors and 4 years to receive an autoimmune condition diagnosis, and with all the conflicting information on the internet these days it's hard to know what will help you feel better.

ExerciseWell’s ‘Recharge ME’ is a comprehensive exercise and wellness programme for people experiencing chronic pain and fatigue that is focused on one thing - YOU. Your programme will be designed specifically for you, based on your symptoms, your body's response to exercise, your current health status and fitness level, and your rehabilitation goals.

The programme caters for people who have been diagnosed with anyone experiencing chronic pain and/or fatigue, including:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME

  • Post-viral fatigue

  • Chronic pain

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Lupus

  • Complex regional pain syndrome

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Polymyalgia rheumatica

  • Cancer side effects - fatigue and pain

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Dysautomnia – OI/POTS

You don’t have to have any prior experience with exercise, as the program will be based on your current health status and is relative to you physical capability.

Your programme will be delivered by a clinical exercise physiologist who has specialist expertise in working with people living with chronic fatigue and pain conditions.

What's included in the Recharge ME programme?

 

  • Full initial assessment including functional testing, exercise tolerance testing, blood pressure, ECG monitoring and heart rate variability, symptom analysis and an assessment of your lifestyle and quality of life.
     

  • Personalised exercise programme, including gentle strength training, stretching and cardiovascular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle programme to follow.
     

  • Supervised and monitored exercise sessions including symptom monitoring, checking exercise technique, reviewing goals, healthy lifestyle coaching and an individual exercise programme progressed and adapted throughout your journey. The exercise sessions will be adjusted to how you are feeling on each day.
     

  • Use of the clinic outside of your monitored sessions and advice on what exercise you should be doing outside of your sessions.
     

  • Healthy lifestyle coaching, including education on nutrition, sleep hygeine, life/activity pacing, stress management, and pain management.
     

  • Friendly, fun sessions. Your supervised sessions will be done alongside 2 to 3 other members of the clinic, where we all have fun, laugh with each other and make great progress!
     

  • Flexible programme with no pressure - while we encourage you to attend the clinic for frequent and regular sessions, we understand that there may be patches where you just can face it. We get it! During flare ups we will discuss how you are feeling with you and together we will decide if attending your exercise session or staying home and resting will be best for your symptoms and overall progress.

The Symptoms and Improvement See-Saw: A balancing act.

When it comes to exercise to help manage chronic pain and fatigue it is important to get the 'dose' right. Just like your medication, you want the right type and amount of exercise prescribed for you. The tricky thing is that the type and amount of exercise that is 'right' can change on a day to day basis. That's where we come in. We will track your symptoms and how your body is responding to the exercise closely and adjust your programme accordingly so you get the most out of the effort you are putting in.
