Post Acute COVID-19
Syndrome (long haulers)

The recovery process from the COVID-19 virus is variable, and depends on the severity and duration of the initial episode. Acute COVID usually ends well by 4 weeks as symptoms subside. Persistent and post-acute COVID-19 symptoms are slow, incomplete recovery with symptoms lasting greater than 5-12 weeks. Our therapy improves stamina, shortness of breath, chest tightness and fatigue by improving efficiency of muscle cell energetics and breathing mechanics.

Successful rehabilitation of patients recovering from COVID-19 must be structured to identify and eliminate specific symptoms.

Our comprehensive program shifts the patients anaerobic threshold to increase stamina and strength and improved muscle energetics.
