With Post-Covid Recovery

Rehabilitation for Covid-19 Recovery

At Bryant Physical Therapy™ in Ellijay, GA, our doctors and clinicians are experts in Covid-19 recovery and prescribing a course of treatment for relief and return of function.

Coronavirus, or COVID-19, has touched every community across our country. While the impact has been devastating to many, there are thousands of patients who are successfully recovering thanks to the tireless efforts of scientists and healthcare workers who have come together to manage the virus.

Rehabilitation for Covid-19 in Ellijay, GA

Many of those who have contracted the virus have fully recovered. There are, however, others who are continuing to suffer from lasting side effects, even after their body fights off the virus. Some common Post-Coronavirus symptoms include fatigue, poor mobility, weakness and difficulty breathing. Impairments in muscle strength, heart and lung capacity, pain, balance, endurance, and walking ability can also lead to a loss of function and independence.

While the severity of these symptoms can vary greatly, many post-COVID-19 patients can benefit from physical therapy provided by a therapist skilled in treating the symptoms and deconditioning that often accompanies the side effects of the virus.

Our BASE Program

Our post-COVID-19 exercise and recovery program is designed to enable patients to return to the activities they enjoyed prior to contracting the virus. All of our PTs and PTAs are COVID-certified to offer post-COVID rehabilitation, enabling them to appropriately treat post-coronavirus symptoms and designing programs to meet the unique needs of each patient. Depending on the depth of the symptoms that patients are experiencing, most will engage in our well-balanced “BASE” program. This program includes a variety of basic components that focus on upper and lower body strengthening, breathing exercises, and balance training, as needed:

  • Balance training to reduce fall risk
  • Aerobic training to improve cardiovascular and pulmonary health
  • Strength training to restore lost muscle and strength
  • Endurance training to reduce fatigue and promote participation in pre-COVID activities

A critical component of any post-COVID-19 recovery program is the close monitoring of vital signs as a patient engages in the various activities. Vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen levels, and respiration rate, are measured regularly throughout the program, ensuring the patient is adapting to the exercises as the intensity of the program increases.

If you or someone you know could benefit from physical therapy as it relates to post-COVID-19 symptoms,
please request an appointment.

Very helpful staff, they quickly put you at ease and have an individual exercise program for you. The equipment and treatment rooms are well maintained and organized. Overall a very pleasant experience, the corrected my lower back issues.

Bonnie Preiss

I have worked with Larry and Mike and his staff for over a year. I started out by receiving therapy with Mike and his associate Priscilla. My wish was and is that to delay knee surgery. Mike and Priscilla have made my wish come true. They put my knee in place and I have been able to function most normally without further therapy or cortisone shots
I was so at ease and happy with the staff including the ladies in the office that I continued using the facility with their wellness program
I actually look forward to my visits that run around three times a week. If I have any problems that may occur with my leg, Mike is very open to a new exercise— and it works! There is always a greeting when I arrive. Everyone including the clients has formed a congenial group. We laugh and joke with each other
But the staff also takes their jobs seriously. They listen to us , they show real empathy to our problems. AND they make us better
Thanks for being there. I look forward to working with you for a long time
