Rehabilitation Program

Our team of pulmonary rehabilitation specialists along with physical and occupational therapists work with you to make notable improvements to your symptoms.

The number and frequency of visits is determined by the mutual goals of the patient and therapist. Patients may be satisfied with results after one or two visits for the physical therapy and rehab portion of the program.

Exercise Program

The exercise component is scheduled to begin in March and will consist of two sessions per week for 10 weeks, adjusted to the patient’s endurance or need.

Exercise specialists at the Wellness Center join with rehabilitation staff to help patients take back their lives from COVID and make improvements in any of the symptoms that are limiting their ability to fully participate in home, work and community tasks.

Is the Post-COVID Recovery Program for you?

Post-COVID conditions, or long COVID, can appear in anyone who has had COVID even if they had no or few symptoms when they were first infected. Those suffering from post-COVID conditions will test negative for COVID-19, but they may experience COVID-like symptoms for weeks or months.

If you are experiencing symptoms three months or more after an initial COVID diagnosis, you may benefit from this program.

  1. Take the symptom quiz to see if you have signs of Post-COVID conditions
  2. Download the patient screening tool to share with your primary care provider
  3. Ask your primary care provider if the Post-COVID recovery program is right for you

For more information, call The Rehabilitation Center at (828) 268-9043.

There was something long hauling about this. There was indescribable anxiety that I’ve never experienced before. My heart would do some flipping and then trigger immediate anxiety. Initially, it all started with my heart rate being so low. Just walking at work would take my strength. I’m not yet at 100%, but I am close.

Our ultimate goal is to help patients take back their lives from COVID and make improvements in any of the symptoms that are limiting their ability to fully participate in home, work and community tasks. Patients have reported improvements in all of their symptoms and all of their functional measures as tested by the therapists.

Physical therapist and COVID “long hauler” Maritza Greene has hope for other sufferers

 

Photo: Post-COVID_Maritza_Greene_feature2 Long after Maritza Greene recovered from two separate bouts of COVID-19, she was still battling symptoms on a daily basis. A physical therapist at The Rehabilitation Center in Boone, Greene knew this wasn’t normal and she began asking questions.

“There was something long hauling about this,” she says. “There was indescribable anxiety that I’ve never experienced before. My heart would do some flipping and then trigger immediate anxiety. Initially, it all started with my heart rate being so low. Just walking at work would take my strength.”

Using her clinical training, Greene worked to get to the root of these lingering issues and began treating herself as she would treat her patients – with a self-prescribed regimen of physical therapy and a diet focused on reducing inflammation. Though she is not yet at 100%, she is close.

Greene is not the only person to have symptoms of COVID long after the initial positive test. In the two years since COVID-19 became a global pandemic, there have been more than 65 million cases. For many of these people, mild to severe symptoms lasted for two to six weeks. However, studies are now estimating that around 20% – 50% of those who have had COVID will experience post-COVID conditions or “long COVID.”
