Covid Long Haulers (Persistent Symptoms) Rehabilitation Program

Have you had COVID-19 and are still experiencing symptoms? You are not alone! Many people are shocked to hear that others have had symptoms just like them after contracting the virus!

COVID-19 is unlike any other illness we’ve experienced, it has impacted our nation in ways we could have never imagined and has had widespread effects on people emotionally, physically and cognitively. The term “COVID long haulers” or those suffering from “long-COVID” has not yet been officially defined, but published studies indicate that someone may be classified as a COVID long hauler if they are experiencing lingering symptoms, 3 to 6+ months after having COVID-19 symptoms.  We have had several patients, that have “healed” from COVID-19, but are still suffering from several functional and physical limitations.

Cobblestone Medicine and Rehab Centres have developed a COVID Long Hauler Treatment Program which is comprehensive in nature and based on current available research. This program is designed for individuals that have had a diagnosis or symptoms of COVID-19 and are experiencing ongoing issues that limit their ability to return to their usual daily activities.
