Covid-19 takes a toll on your body and rehabilitation is a critical part of a successful recovery process. Whether you were hospitalized or rode out the virus at home, what you may not realize is that this novel coronavirus, combined with being bedridden for an extended period, can cause a wide range of significant after-effects that can interfere with your return to daily living.
The lingering effects vary from person to person and can be physical, cognitive, psychological or some combination of all three. They include everything from confusion, depression, cardiopulmonary decline and de-conditioning, muscle weakness, nerve damage, generalized fatigue, the impact of social isolation, and having difficulty returning to simple daily activities. And that’s where the experts at Burke come in.
Burke's unique interdisciplinary team approach to rehabilitation has been helping patients regain strength, independence and health for more than a century. With the arrival of Covid-19 Burke has been able to use their specialized expertise, innovative protocols and deep experience in rehabilitation care to help those recovering from the coronavirus overcome any of these potentially debilitating after-effects. Burke offers both inpatient rehabilitation upon direct transfer from an acute care hospital, and outpatient rehabilitation care across the region for those recuperating at home.
