Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) is a newly recognized viral disease primarily involving the respiratory tract. The world is currently experiencing this COVID-19 pandemic with mild to moderate symptoms of fever and cold, difficulty in breathing, general weakness and tiredness to severe disease manifestations like pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome with respiratory failure and multi organ failure . Since COVID-19 is a new disease, very little is known about possible clinical sequelae that may persist after resolution of the acute infection. Some of the known complications documented include msk problem like severe physical deconditioning, muscular weakness, loss of joint mobility, neurological problem like neuropathies, increased incidence of stroke, pulmonary problem like lung fibrosis, permanent collapse of lung, cardiac complications like cardiac insufficiency and increased risk of myocardial infarction leading to overall limitations of the affected person in his day to day activity. These manifestations are magnified with older individuals, children and pregnant women and also those with underlying health conditions like diabetes mellitus or hypertension. Hence this brings to the immediate intervention by physiotherapists for Rehabilitation of these patients from acute hospital settings to eventual healthy discharge into the community.
Hence keeping in mind minimum contact policy, social distancing and avoiding unnecessary travel to physiotherapy opd, we at The SIA College Of Health Sciences College of Physiotherapy have taken an initiative to provide Rehabilitation services to the post covid patients virtually through online consultation aiming to provide much needed physiotherapy services in these testing times.
We are starting our physiotherapy tele Rehabilitation services from 8th of September by our eminent n specialized team of orthopedic physiotherapist, neurophysiotherapists, cardiac n respiratory therapist and community therapist.
