COVID-19 can cause widespread problems among people of all ages particularly those with compromised immune systems and older adults.
Some of the commonly experienced side effects of COVID-19 include difficulty breathing, decreased endurance, headache, fatigue, anxiety, cognitive deficits (“brain fog”), heart problems, and taste dysfunction.
Rehab Medicine of the Carolinas offers various treatments including the following:
- Pulmonary rehabilitation to help improve cardiopulmonary function
- Education for taste dysfunction
- Physical therapy to address endurance deficits
- Exercise programs to help with cardiopulmonary problems
COVID survivors may experience symptoms for days, week, months, or even years.
We can help patients overcome the deficits caused by COVID-19 to have an improved quality of life and overall sense of well-being.
