COVID-19 Recovery Program
Regain physical and emotional health after COVID.
As the number of individuals with COVID-19 declines in San Diego, our team of experts at the Sharp Allison deRose Rehabilitation Center is here to help you continue to heal from the long-term effects of COVID, also called long COVID-19 or long-haul COVID-19.
What are the common signs and symptoms of long COVID?
You may experience a wide range of symptoms for weeks or months following a COVID-19 diagnosis. Symptoms include, but are not limited to:
- Pain persisting beyond the normal healing process (usually three months)
- Shortness of breath and poor endurance
- Weakness or trouble walking
- Problems with balance or dizziness
- Trouble performing activities of daily life
- Pain or achiness
- Problems with memory or brain fog
- Anxiety or depression
Supporting you through the long haul.
As you recover from COVID-19, we recognize that you may still experience lingering symptoms that reduce your ability to get back to daily life. At the Sharp Allison deRose Rehabilitation Center, we are here to provide individualized therapies in a supportive and safe setting. We also offer a free mindful self-compassion class and a post-COVID-19 support group.
