Why is Post Covid-19 Rehabilitation So Important?

  • Research indicates more than 70% of all patients discharged from the hospital are likely to incur some physical complications such as those listed above.
  • If untreated, such complications can lead to long term loss of function, decreased quality of life, and further health complications.
  • As more details of COVID-19 emerge, the need for early intervention and recovery, programs has become increasingly clear.  Physical and occupational therapy has been proven to help restore function in patients following acute illness.
