Do You Have Lingering ("Long-Haul")
Symptoms of COVID-19?
What is "Long COVID"?
World Health Organization (WHO) has described lingering post-COVID-19 conditions as “Long COVID” which can cause a constellation of symptoms.
These lingering symptoms can include:
Fatigue or weakness
Difficulty performing daily activities like household chores/work
Breathlessness/shortness of breath
Muscle or joint pain
Poor endurance or decreased ability to exercise/walk
Cognitive issues including confusion, forgetfulness, lack of mental focus and clarity
Long COVID or Post-COVID-19 conditions can be successfully managed with treatment in a supervised environment under the care of a Physical/Occupational therapist.
The goal of physical therapy is to improve strength, stamina, manage shortness of breath and return to pre-COVID level of function. In addition to addressing physical impairments, occupational therapy can also focus on cognitive rehabilitation post-COVID.
Occupational therapists help with memory and confusion to manage the "brain fog" often experienced by patients with long-term COVID effects.
Foundation Therapy's Physical and Occupational Therapists will develop an individualized treatment plan to address each individual's symptoms. This plan may include the use of stretches and manual therapy to improve mobility/stiffness/pain, strength training, balance training, and endurance training.
We can help patients overcome many physical and cognitive complications that can arise following COVID-19. Our licensed Physical and Occupational therapists offer treatments to improve muscle strength, endurance, muscle/joint pain, difficulty with walking/functional activities of daily living, and cognitive impairments.
