Our therapists can help COVID-19 long-haulers by treating the effects of PASC. They may recommend activities that people with long COVID can do at home, including low-intensity stretches to improve range of motion, and strength and balance training. Movement is essential to your recovery.
The goal of Physical Therapy is to improve your strength, stamina, balance, and quality of life through prescribed movement.
The goal of Occupational Therapy is to improve your ability to perform your activities of daily living safely and independently.
The goal of Speech Therapy is to improve your communication, cognitive ability, speech and concentration in order to perform your activities of daily living safely and independently.
