COVID Rehabilitation Program
Returning home and resuming life may be harder than anticipated for many recovering from COVID-19 symptoms. It is widely reported that many patients recovering from COVID-19 continue to face physical, cognitive, or mental health problems long after their initial treatment. To address these recovery needs, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network is dedicated to providing care for patients who were hospitalized for COVID-19.
Who is eligible?
Spaulding welcomes patients who are recovering at home or have been discharged from the hospital or inpatient rehabilitation facility and who are experiencing ongoing, prolonged symptoms related to their COVID-19 diagnosis illness commonly referred to as “Post COVID Syndrome.”
What post COVID symptoms do we address?
Patients who are recovering from a positive COVID-19 diagnosis can receive treatment for a variety of ongoing symptoms related to the long-term effects of COVID-19 which may include:
- Prolonged cough
- Chest pain
- Arthralgias (joint pain)
