After recovering from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the patients often suffer from COVID-related
disabilities which can strongly affect their physical fitness and quality of life. It is not only the serious COVID-19
cases (e.g. those who required mechanical ventilation or developed respiratory failure) that can lead to post-
COVID disabilities, but also milder cases are frequently associated with long-term health problems. Reduced lung
performance is one of the classic symptoms but other functional impairments may also occur.

This is where we come in with our offer of SPECIALISED INTENSIVE POST-COVID-19 REHABILITATION FOR
NEUROLOGICAL COMPLICATIONS. In view of the various individual courses of illness and their consequences,
the rehabilitation measures are tailored to each patient and his/her needs. An individual treatment plan will be
made up reflecting what the patient needs. Involving different medical and therapeutic specialties ensures
integrated consideration of all treatment aspects needed to optimally address the neurological, pulmonary and
psychotherapeutic issues.

More information can be found in the Post-COVID-19 Rehabilitation Flyer.

When can I start my Post-COVID-19 Rehab?
  • You must have officially recovered from COVID-19, i.e. you must meet the criteria for hospital discharge
    and/or ending home isolation, even if your general health is markedly compromised.
  • Your oxygenation and respiratory rate must be stable so that you are basically able to receive therapy.
What are the therapy goals?

The therapy goals of rehabilitation after COVID-19 depend on each patient’s needs. The attending physician will discuss them with the interdisciplinary rehab team and, based on this, the treatment programme will be defined. Frequently, rehabilitation treatment focuses on the following general therapy goals with individually varying intensity:

  • Improve your respiratory function and lung volume;
  • Improve motor deficits, increase endurance and performance;
  • Improve cognitive deficits, increase endurance and performance;
  • Improve emotional well-being, reduce psycho-mental and/or stress-related psychological impairments;
  • Improve general fitness and ability to receive therapy.
Overview of available treatments
  • Improvement of respiratory function and lung volume: e.g. breathing therapy, swallowing diagnostics, swallowing therapy.
  • Improvement of motor deficits and endurance: e.g. mobilisation, stamina training, task-oriented training geared towards each patient’s individual dysfunctions.
  • Improvement of cognitive deficits and endurance: e.g. attention and memory training.
  • Improvement of general fitness.
