We have recognized the toll COVID-19 has taken on those who contracted the virus and understand our role in helping people recover from the illness. Many suffer from physical and emotional side-effects of the virus and/or hospitalization, including deconditioning, pain, and weakness.
COASTherapy’s therapists are uniquely qualified to treat the physical and emotional challenges brought on by COVID-19. Physical complications after COVID-19 can persist for months or even years and can lead to a loss of function and independence. Complications caused by COVID-19 may include:
- Impairments in muscle strength
- Reduced heart and lung function
- Impaired balance
- Reduced endurance
We are proud of our clinicians and privileged to provide COVID-19 recovery and rehabilitation to those who need it. COASTherapy has a screening protocol for interested patients and will be following CDC guidelines for everyone’s safety. Individualized treatment plans are created for patients which may include exercise and manual therapy for:
- Core strengthening
- Muscle endurance and flexibility
- Posture restoration
- Return to functional activity
Treatment plans also include education focusing on:
- energy conservation
- activity modification
We’ll take extra care to monitor heart and respiration rates as well as blood oxygen saturation levels. Our therapists are mindful of this condition and will be monitoring for safety with regard to balance, fatigue, and fall prevention. Recovering patients can be confident that COASTherapy’s assessment and recommended treatment plans will help them recuperate, reach their health goals, and return to their daily activities.
Patients recovering from COVID-19 who are experiencing fatigue and loss of function due to the virus are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.COASTherapy.com or to call one of our below locations to schedule an appointment. Treatment is available in-clinic or virtually through telehealth. It would be our privilege to help you through your recovery process!
