...when I read the PACE manual for therapists for GET Pg 20, it clearly states:
Aim: The aim of this treatment is to reverse the physcial inactivity that helps maintain CFS/ME, and to re-engage the participant in physical activity
it goes on to say
Theoretical model: GET assumes that CFS is perpetuated by deconditioing (lack of fitness), reduced physical strengh and altered perception of effort consequent upon reduced physical acticity
Also: "participants are encouraged to see symptoms as temporary and reversible, as a result of their current physical weakness, and not as signs of progressive pathology"
later on it does say There maybe other mechaniusms involved in the success of GET apart from reversing deconditioning
