Maximize Functional Recovery After COVID-19
After having COVID-19, your body may require extra time to fully recover. You may experience muscle weakness, decreased energy, or problems with speech or swallowing in the weeks or months following infection. You may have also suffered a cardiac event with recurrent chest pain or may have developed pulmonary sequelae with lingering fatigue.
The need for rehabilitation services for individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 is expected to be significant. Our rehab team is prepared to help you recover and return to your prior level of function before COVID-19.
