Many patients who have gone through infection by COVID-19 have sustained significant impairments in muscle strength, cardiovascular issues, decreased lung capacity, pain, and weakness causing balance, endurance, and altered walking abilities. This can lead to a significant loss of function and independence. Their significant decline in function does not spontaneously recover after their discharge from the hospital or experiencing the illness. The significant change in health creates a need for skilled physical and occupational therapists, who have been specifically trained in the care of post COVID patients, to assist these individuals to regain their life.
- Assist the patient in understanding their condition, body status and develop individual plans to restore function
- Educate in activity modification and energy conservation
- Individualized evaluation and function assessment
- Establish a plan to address functional losses to include:
- Manual Therapy to assist with mobility of the spine, chest, and extremities.
