Are you suffering from the effects of Long COVID?

We can help to shorten your recovery!

Long Covid is the term used to describe the effects of COVID-19 that continue for weeks or even months beyond the initial illness and can affect your entire body. The symptoms can often change and can even come and go over time.

The severity of symptoms varies from person to person and we are only just starting to understand the effects and extent of the problem. Thankfully, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists are well placed to treat many of the symptoms associated with Long COVID.
