Need Support?

     We firmly believe that chronic illness from COVID-19 is real and that you are not alone. However, it may take the right team to help you recover. This can include physical therapists and other medical specialists, but it also includes friends, family, and getting support from other people who share in your experience.

     If you are interested in meeting with other Long Covid survivors, let us know and we'll try to connect you with a local support group.

Why PT?

     Physical therapists are in an ideal position to help with Long Covid. We spend more time with our patients than other providers, which allows us to listen to and learn from our patients. When treating a new disorder, gathering information about the condition is crucial.

     Many patients complain that they are sent to multiple specialists for each different symptom, but no one looks at them as a whole person. Physical therapists are used to working with the whole body instead of just one system. 

     Our staff works hard to stay up on the most recent research available on Long COVID and combine our experience treating similar conditions for your benefit. We have experience treating conditions which overlap with Long COVID such as POTS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, vertigo, headaches, and pain of all kinds. Physical therapists are well versed in understanding the cardiovascular and neurological systems and our staff have advanced specialty training in dizziness, gastrointestinal and pelvic health problems.
