I think I understand this to mean that in FM and ME, reaction to movement at the ankle when standing still that gives a clue that we are going off balance, and to visual cues, is slower than in healthy controls. And because we react more slowly to going off balance, we have to move more to re-balance, so there is a bigger, slower swaying motion - and more danger of falling.
So they are suggesting we process sensorimotor messages more slowly, and that's why we are slower to react and correct our balance.
Makes a change from being told all our physical disabilities are caused by deconditioning.
