      Long Covid

      The Coronavirus disease has made a significant impact on all our lives over the past few years.

      Featured Services

      It is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which can range from either mild to moderate respiratory illness, to causing some people to become severely unwell requiring hospitalisation. The most common symptoms are fever, cough, fatigue and loss of taste or smell. Most people especially in our vaccinated population, recover from COVID-19 well, however there is emerging research and evidence in the area of ‘long COVID-19’ which are symptoms lasting more than 6-8 weeks after the original infection.

      • Long Covid Treatment

        Our physiotherapists have been fascinated in keeping up to date with the latest research around rehabilitation after COVID-19. We look forward to assisting people with breathing retraining, returning to their normal activity, and regaining fitness level.
