The coronavirus has had a huge impact on us recently. Fortunately, you can now visit a physiotherapist to help you with residual complaints after the coronavirus.
As a physiotherapist, we can support you in the recovery of complaints after the coronavirus. Residual complaints after the coronavirus come in different forms. Whether you have been in intensive care for a week or you have only experienced mild complaints for a few days. The coronavirus can cause physical, but also cognitive and/or psychological complaints.
If you continue to have symptoms (physical, cognitive or psychological) after being discharged from hospital or recovering at home from the coronavirus, you can contact your GP. Your GP can then give you a referral for physiotherapy if necessary.
Common complaints after the coronavirus
Common complaints that we can help you with include:
- Fatigue, shortness of breath, body aches and stiffness
- Memory loss, concentration problems and difficulty planning daily activities
- Anxiety, stress complaints, shortness of breath, sleeping problems
In the case of an intensive care admission, the PICS syndrome (Post Intensive Care Syndrome) and ICU-AW (Intensive Care Unit-Aquired Weakness) can also occur.
In practice we see very different combinations of complaints. We do not yet know everything about how rehabilitation after the illness takes place. We therefore look at the individual complaints per client and we tailor the treatment to the client’s request for help and wishes.
By working together based on your activity level, we can ensure that your complaints decrease and you can continue your day with more energy on the basis of the most recent scientific insights!
