For many COVID-19 patients, the battle to breathe well continues well after the discharge from hospital. Many of the patients who develop moderate to severe symptoms of COVID-19 will require rehabilitation after they are discharged or risk developing chronic lung issues that can significantly impair their quality of life and ability to return to work.
Masina Hospital a leading private charitable trust hospital, now offers affordable and comprehensive post COVID rehabilitation in partnership with ReLiva Physiotherapy & Rehab (Respirehab). The post COVID rehab program has been designed in accordance with evidence based international guidelines and is supervised by Cardiorespiratory physiotherapists. Respirehab focuses not only to improve breathing capacity and lung function, it also assists patients with other long covid symptoms such as musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and vertigo.
For patients who are unable to visit the clinic, Respirehab is also available through tele-physiotherapy at www.respirehab.com . Respirehab has successfully assisted many patients in their fight with breathlessness and fatigue post COVID. A study published in Indian Journal of Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy showed an average 71% improvement in respiratory function (measured by SGRQ) and almost 100% improvement in exercise capacity (measured by 1 RM-10RM) for patients after 1-month Respirehab program.
Speaking about Respirehab, Dr Sonam Solanki, Consultant Pulmonologist, said: “A guided and supervised pulmonary rehabilitation makes a significant difference to well-being of the patients. It is important for patients to undergo the rehabilitation to ensure complete recovery.”
