The Workwell Foundation Resource Page for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

You don’t need to be a large organization to make a big difference. You simply need to be committed to a field (and producing jaw-dropping results doesn’t hurt either.)  Consisting of three exercise physiologists (one with ME/CFS), a clinical coordinator and working with one of the top chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) experts (Dr. Dan Peterson) in the world, the  small Workwell Foundation has and is playing a seminal role in the chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) field.

Workwell (formerly the Pacific Fatigue lab) has been making a difference in ME/CFS for over a decade

The recent metabolomic and energy studies that have galvanized so much interest by highlighting problems with energy production are simply the logical conclusion of the exercise test results Workwell pioneered with Dr. Dan Peterson over 15 years ago. Workwell’s exercise tests uncovered an energy deficit that may be unique to ME/CFS and helped make exercise a key component in dozens of ME/CFS research studies. The Workwell Foundation’s work with Dr. Todd Davenport resulted in a seminal paper on ME/CFS and physical therapy which has helped many physical therapists embrace ME/CFS.

For many though, Workwell’s influence has come at a much more individual level; their exercise tests have proven crucial in helping many people with ME/CFS and/or fibromyalgia (FM) win their disability battles.
