To the surprise of many COVID positive patients, physical therapy can aid in the recovery process. For the majority of COVID-19 patients, symptoms remain mild and dissipate after two to three weeks. But an estimated 10% to 35% report experiencing symptoms like shortness of breath and muscle weakness for months.
For those experiencing long-haul symptoms their hospital and recovery time is much longer than other COVID-19 patients and requires additional rehabilitation. But physical therapy can help with long-haul COVID symptoms.
What COVID Symptoms Physical Therapy can Treat
Physical therapy can help treat a variety of symptoms COVID patients experience, including:
- Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, respiratory recovery
- Decreased mobility and ability to walk
- Overall weakness and generalized deconditioning
- Pain, joint stiffness, and other musculoskeletal conditions
- Balance and neurological challenges
- Worsening of comorbidities
