Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network recently hosted a webinar about the physical effects of COVID-19, including complications that lead to hospitalization and long-term physical and psychological issues, as well as how therapy and other rehabilitation care can help people recover.

As a physical therapist with Good Shepherd’s COVID Rehabilitation Program, Kelly Limbauan, PT, DPT, NCS, addressed the various impacts COVID has on people’s bodies — from ongoing shortness of breath and loss of balance to lingering fatigue and swallowing issues.

Limbauan also explained how physical, occupational and speech therapies can all address both common and unique side effects of COVID.

Comprehensive COVID Rehabilitation

“No two people are the same,” says Limbauan. “It’s important that individuals recovering from COVID receive therapy that’s individualized and comprehensive to meet their specific needs.”

Limbauan also shared a case example of how rehabilitation helped one patient recover from COVID-19. She also answered questions from attendees.
