Long COVID rehabilitation

Specialist long COVID rehabilitation improves your breathing and general fitness levels after having COVID-19.

For some people, the coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause symptoms for weeks or even months after the virus has been contracted. This results in chronic fatigue, weakness, breathlessness, and other distressing symptoms, which include:

  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Irritability and low mood
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Loss of energy and chronic fatigue
  • Reduced muscle strength and overall function
  • Problems when swallowing
  • Chronic pain
  • Difficulty performing everyday tasks

Our rehabilitation services for long COVID focus on tailored physiotherapy to improve your core strength, as well as the use of bespoke equipment to maximise your breathing capacity and increase your mobility. You will work with a team of consultants, nurses, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists to recover from the illness. At Circle Health Group, we focus on what you want to gain from your recovery while easing your symptoms and significantly improving your quality of life. 

Rehabilitation is a step-by-step tailored treatment programme built and delivered by specialists that helps you gradually recover from the effects of COVID-19. 

Many people experience breathlessness and fatigue with long COVID. Through specialist physiotherapy combined with innovative technology, your multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals will help strengthen your lung capacity and boost your overall fitness.

We use the latest equipment and technologies to support your rehabilitation journey. Our healthcare teams are specially trained in how to operate these technologies to get you better as quickly and effectively as possible. This equipment includes a Hydro Physio, a walk-in unit with an integrated treadmill that can be filled with water up to your shoulders. It allows you to perform tailored physiotherapy exercises to improve your strength and mobility in a safe and controlled way. 

At Circle Health Group, our rehabilitation programmes are consultant-led, helping you regain your confidence and function with a team you can trust. Everyone recovers from COVID-19 differently and at a different rate, which is why we tailor your treatment programme to fit your needs and recovery goals. We also take a holistic approach, which means we support your emotional wellbeing (as well as your physical) through treatment such as cognitive behavioural therapy and other forms of talking therapy. 

The benefits of rehabilitation include:

A swift recovery

You recover faster with rehabilitation than you would without it.

Pain management

You learn skills and techniques to manage your pain on a daily basis.

Strength, mobility, and confidence

You regain physical strength and mobility, making it possible to perform everyday tasks, dramatically improving your quality of life. 

Balanced emotional wellbeing

You learn how to manage your emotional wellbeing throughout your recovery journey to ensure you mind is as healthy as possible during a challenging time in your life.

Everyone benefits from rehabilitation differently depending on their circumstances. You can discuss how rehabilitation will benefit you more specifically with your consultant.
