Post-COVID Rehabilitation Pathways: The Road Less Traveled


The medical and research communities are rapidly sharing updated and/or evolving information regarding the lingering effects of SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 on various patient populations. Clinicians often feel overwhelmed, unsure of information quality, or unclear about how such information relates to clinical practice, especially in an outpatient environment.

You may ask yourself:
  • How might a patient's previous (confirmed or suspected) COVID-19 infection influence rehabilitation for return to work or sport?
  • Are there specific questions or screening strategies I should use if my patient has a COVID-19 history?
  • Is graded cardiovascular exercise a one-size-fits-all approach to post-COVID conditions?
This 1.5-hour webinar will discuss common clinical presentations of post-COVID conditions, from the hospitalized, post-ICU patient to the high-level athlete returning to sport. This course aims to help rehabilitation clinicians differentiate between post-COVID conditions or phenotypes amenable to traditional, graded-exercise rehabilitation approaches and those that may benefit from a symptom-management approach.

As physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, functional movement and exercise-based intervention strategies are the foundation of our profession. However, as we will learn in this course, there are specific clinical features such as post-viral fatigue or dysautonomia that should inform if, how, and when to prescribe exercise. In addition, resources will be provided for therapists, patients, their families, and their care teams.
