Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Better Treated By Internet!

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Better Treated By Internet!

(ePharmaNews) – Counseling patients through the internet can be understandable, and giving treatment plans for some cases through the internet may still be, hardly, understandable, but proving that an internet-based treatment for one condition can be eight-times better than conventional treatment is what will blow your mind off!

A new study, published today in The Lancet, asserted that online treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome CFS has better results than conventional treatments, as it enhanced patients' concentration, memory, muscle aches and, more importantly, fatigue.
CFS is common among teenagers and considered among one of the main reasons for missing school classes.


In this study, the researchers followed 135 persons with CFS, 68 of them were registered in FITNET; an internet program that offer therapeutic plans and depend on the same conventional protocols, where 67 of them received the currently used protocols which focuses on behavioral and group therapy coupled with physical exercises that are done face-to-face with the specialist.


Six months later came the surprise, the internet-based treatment cured 63% of participants; about eight-folds the number that conventional treatment cured.
Going further deep in the results, physical exercises increased four-times and school absence decreased five-times among the internet group compared to the conventional group.


The authors point out: “Web-based treatment has general advantages: it is available at any time, avoids face-to-face treatment barriers (i.e. treatment delay due to poor accessibility, inconvenience of scheduling appointments, missing school or work, travelling to or from a clinician’s office), and reduces treatment time and costs.”


In other words, more available, indirect and cheaper alternatives may change the concept of treating some disorders in the future.
