Some of the symptoms of long Covid include fatigue, headaches, breathlessness, loss of smell and taste, musculoskeletal pain, decreased fitness, chest pain, ‘brain fog’, and numbness. The first thing to focus on is stabilising these symptoms before moving onto increased levels of activity. We will assess whether or not your symptoms require further investigation.
As long Covid is an emerging picture, we always take a highly personalised approach to treatment and rehabilitation. At your initial assessment, we will establish what your symptoms are and look at your medical history to design a bespoke treatment plan in line with your needs.
Taking a hands-on approach, we will assess your breathing and chest expansion, as well as your respiratory rate, oxygen saturation and blood pressure before looking at the level of physical exercise to advise. We may offer long Covid treatment that includes exercises to tackle breathlessness and improve lung capacity.
If you’re suffering from pain, we will start by testing your strength and range of motion. This assessment will help us to diagnose the issue and create a treatment plan that works for you. Whether you need to increase mobility or rehabilitate joint dysfunction, we can advise on the best route.
We always take a holistic approach to our physiotherapy so that we can build a full picture. Taking into account your lifestyle and goals, we will work together to help you recover and get back to doing what you love. Book your initial assessment with us to get started on your recovery.
