Physiotherapy is Instrumental in Post Covid Rehabilitation

July 8, 2021

Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy are instrumental in Post Covid Rehabilitation.

At first physiotherapy was focused on treatment of hospitalized & acute patients. However over time it has been discovered that many patients who have recovered from the disease are suffering from long & short term effects caused by Covid-19.

Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy are essential in rehabilitation of patients who are suffering long term effects of Covid or who are experiencing a delay in recovery.

At Pip Jackson & Associates we offer Post Covid Treatment which can include Physio & Occupational Therapy if required.  Physiotherapy helps with better respiratory function to reduce fatigue levels. The Occupational Therapist will see what is needed for the patient to cope and return to activities such as independent bathing, showering, dressing etc.

These rehabilitation services can happen in your own home or at one of our practices.

Our physiotherapists will work with the patient to gradually increase their daily living and physical functioning by guiding them on specific exercises and working together with them to monitor progress. The goal will be to improve the activities of daily living, increase physical activity levels & the capacity to exercise.

Please feel free to contact us on: 011 440 8888 or pja@therapyteam.co.za for more information or to book a consultation.
