Physical Therapy and COVID-19 Recovery

COVID-19 can cause disruptions to all areas of your life. It can present a serious threat to health and function, long after the infection is gone. PTs are uniquely qualified to help with your recovery. Some survivors are diagnosed as “long-Covid.” These survivors are sometimes left with lingering symptoms called PASC or Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus which causes Covid-19 virus). These individuals may suffer from post-exertional malaise or PEM, in which the PT will monitor them closely and adjust exercise prescription accordingly.

PTs empower people to achieve movement and restore quality of life. PT will help you regain:

  • Balance
  • Flexibility
  • Pain Management
  • Vestibular Function (dizziness or feeling “off”)
  • Strength
  • Mobility
  • Cardiovascular Endurance

At VPT we provide ‘hands-on’ care in addition to prescribing movement, with emphasis on patient education.
