How We Can Help with COVID-19 Rehabilitation
As a leader in Physical Rehabilitation, we offer treatment for patients recovering from COVID-19 to help them through the physical challenges that can occur from the virus and get them back to the life they knew.
Physical complications after COVID-19 can persist for months or even years, and include impairments of muscle strength, heart and lung capacity, pain, balance, endurance, and walking ability leading to loss of function and independence.
Our highly educated therapists undergo advanced training, which gives them the experience and education to provide you with the highest standard of care. You can be confident that our assessment and recommended treatment plan will help you recuperate and reach your health goals.
When working with our therapists, each patient is evaluated so we can create an individualized treatment plan. For COVID-19 rehabilitation, your treatment may include, but is not limited to:
- Exercise training
- Strengthening of breathing muscles
- Upper and lower body strengthening
- Aerobic exercise and reconditioning
- Balance and body awareness

You must also pass the CDC guidelines for person’s with COVID-19 under isolation or for persons who have not had COVID-19 symptoms but tested positive and are under isolation.
