COVID-19 has been linked to a slew of symptoms, the severity of which varies widely from person to person. It can take a long time to feel like yourself again, even for individuals who only had minor symptoms. Patients with severe symptoms may be confined to their homes, bedridden, or even hospitalized for weeks as they recuperate.The effects of prolonged inactivity often make it more difficult to recover from the disease’s effects. That’s exactly where post covid rehabilitation physiotherapy comes into play.
Weakness and deconditioning are two of the most prevalent problems that people experience after suffering from COVID-19. A physical therapist (PT) can determine a target heart rate and then monitor the patient’s heart rate to make sure they’re exercising safely. Common residual effects include pain and stiffness, which can be evaluated and treated in a post-covid rehabilitation clinic.
It’s all too simple to over-exert yourself when you are trying to regain your strength. A physical therapist will prescribe particular exercises and repetition counts to ensure that you are exercising safely and effectively. Following our post-covid rehabilitation physiotherapy programme with one of our skilled PTs will ensure that you are challenging yourself with the appropriate exercises and levels of difficulty.
Our physical therapists are experts in every piece of exercise equipment at our clinic and will be able to think outside the box to come up with a plan that works for you. After remaining immobile, some individuals experience stiffness or soreness. Hands-on manual treatments can be used by physical therapists to help alleviate pain and stiffness.Any patient who does not feel ‘back to normal’ after two weeks after their symptoms have subsided could benefit from the help of a physical therapist. Expert guidance can help you get back to your previous level of function as soon as feasible and safely.
