Post COVID-19 Syndrome Rehabilitation Program
Many patient’s who have become infected with COVID-19 are experiencing on-going side effects for many months, interfering with normal activities of daily living. Even a mild case of COVID-19 can cause debilitating headaches, extreme fatigue and body aches. Studies suggest anywhere from 10-70% of people who have “recovered” from COVID-19 will continue to experience symptoms, which is now being referred to as post-COVID syndrome.
The most common symptoms that can linger include:
- Joint Pain
- Difficulty Breathing
- Brain Fog
- Sleep Issues
- Imbalance & Dizziness
- Post Stroke
Individuals more at risk to develop post COVID syndrome include;
- Adults over the age of 50
- Individuals who experienced a more severe case
- Individuals with underlying health conditions (cardiopulmonary issues, hypertension, diabetes, obesity)
What should you do if you or a loved one are experiencing post-COVID syndrome?
If you have only experienced mild illness and self-treated at home but are now experiencing post-COVID syndrome, schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. Your doctor can diagnose the severity of your lingering symptoms and recommend a cardiologist, pulmonologist, other specialist or physical therapy.
The extreme fatigue associated with post-COVID syndrome can have a significant effect on a person’s quality of life – having a negative impact on family life and work. Balance Solutions Physical Therapy has developed an intervention program for patients suffering from the lingering side effects of COVID-19.
Physical therapy intervention can speed the recovery process and address the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiovascular symptoms experienced by Covid-19 survivors. The program focuses on recovering lost function and reconditioning your body. Our skilled physical therapists will perform a comprehensive evaluation and develop a personalized plan of care that will be tailored to your specific goals and needs. Intervention may include;
- Balance & Stability Training
- Endurance Training
- Breathing Exercises
- Vestibular Rehabilitation
- Post-Stroke Rehabilitation
- Functional Mobility Training
- Manual therapy intervention for muscle & joint pain
Balance Solutions therapists work one-on-one with their patients; patients are never left alone with modalities or to perform exercises independently. Our team members consistently offer feedback on proper exercise performance and focus on exercises in the clinic that can not be performed at home. Patient’s with post-COVID syndrome will be closely monitored. Patients are evaluated in private treatment rooms allowing for increased confidentiality, and all manual therapy is performed in private for increased patient comfort.
