Post-COVID Rehab

Therapy Can Aid In Post-COVID19 Recovery

Here at Mobile Therapy Services, we offer methods of treatment for patients recovering from COVID-19. As more research is done, it’s being discovered that there are several lasting effects from the virus, many of which are causing challenges that can continue for unprecedented amounts of time. The lasting effects are sometimes referred to as Long COVID, or Post-COVID Syndrome.

We want to inform you that the patients recovering from COVID-19 at our clinic are no longer sick or contagious, and we are still taking the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. 

If you are experiencing lasting side effects of the virus, contact our physical therapy and occupational therapy practice in Dallas, PA to learn more about how our physical, occupational, and speech therapists can aid in your recovery from Long COVID, or Post-COVID Syndrome.    

                                   

How can therapy help with recovery?

Some common physical conditions we are seeing in people recovering from Long COVID-19:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased balance
  • Difficulties with swallowing
  • Memory problems
  • Difficulty with word-finding
  • Cognitive changes

COVID-19 isn’t the only cause of these impairments. They can also be the result of other health conditions and illnesses, such as the flu, pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and others. 

Regardless of what the cause for your condition is, our physical, occupational, and speech therapists at Mobile Therapy Services can help with recovery through the following types of training and exercise programs:

  • Aerobic exercise and reconditioning for improved pulmonary health
  • Stretching
  • Endurance training
  • Balance and gait training
  • Upper and lower body strengthening exercises
  • Breathing exercises to increase lung function and capacity
  • Manual therapy 
  • Restoring muscle strength 
  • Speech/language therapy for damage caused by mechanical ventilation (such as injuries from breathing tubes to vocal cords, or deconditioning of the muscles needed for swallowing)

Getting on the road to recovery

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been experiencing the above mentioned lingering side effects from COVID-19 or another illness altogether; therapeutic intervention may benefit you and help you get back to living as normally as possible.
