Post-COVID-19 symptom rehabilitation in Edmonton

This service is for those who have contracted COVID-19, have recovered, but are still having the symptoms of muscle and mental fatigue, muscle weakness, and decreased cardiovascular output.

Our physiotherapists assess each patient as an individual to determine what your goals are and working collaboratively will develop a care plan that includes a progressive safe exercise program with outcome measures to track progress and help you return to your pre-COVID status.  We are also able to offer this service via tele-rehabilitation if you are not comfortable or able to attend for in person care.

POST-COVID REHABILITATION PATIENT'S VOICE

A. L. (FEB. 2021)

I can’t express how grateful I am to the amazing team at REP Physio. After being diagnosed with COVID 19, I developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome from the virus. My fatigue was so debilitating that I spent six months sleeping most of the day, not able to participate in normal activities of daily life. When I started my rehab at REP Physio I was extremely deconditioned. It was very difficult for me to come to terms with how poor my cardiovascular fitness was after being healthy and fit my whole life. Miles normalized where I was starting from and took the time to talk to me about what I was able to do and listened to how I was feeling. This approach makes me feel like part of the team and empowered to make health decisions. Throughout my rehab Miles has always checked in to ensure the plan is working for me, adjust the appointment based on how I’m feeling and push me when I need it. The care and encouragement from Miles had been essential to my progress.

My road to recovery hasn’t been easy, but the support I have received from the whole team is incredible. Now that I’m three months into rehab my fatigue symptoms have significantly reduced. I feel strong, capable and more like myself than I have since I got sick. I couldn’t have achieved so much without Miles and the team at REP Physio. They are dedicated, hardworking and personable. I truly believe they are the reason I am getting my life back.
