Introduction

Around one in ten people who contract coronavirus (COVID-19) will experience long-term consequences, otherwise known as Long COVID. Long COVID is the umbrella term used for the wide range of symptoms reported in patients with issues related to COVID-19 that last for 12 weeks or more. These symptoms involve many different body systems. A better understanding of the underlying pathologies and the impact of the disease on individuals and their functioning is needed in order to best guide our physiotherapy management of Long COVID. Due to the heterogeneous population, the wide range of symptoms reported and the lack of sufficient evidence, interventions for the physical therapy management of Long COVID are still highly debated and should be individualised and risk-stratified.

Aims

The purpose of this course is to increase your knowledge of Long COVID, its debilitating impact and the latest evidence on its physiotherapy management.
