With his extensive military and civillian experience in Rehabilitation, Medical Director & Consultant Rheumatologist, Dr John Etherington can assess and case manage patients recovering from both mild and serious cases of COVID-19.
To determine the effect of COVID-19, you will have an initial consultation with Dr Etherington, where he will make a careful assessment of your condition by taking a full history, conducting an examination and arranging any any investigations you may need. This will identify the nature and level of impact the virus has had on you and will allow him to prescribe the rehabilitation programme which is best suited to your goals.
Dr Etherington will then form a closely monitored rehabilitation plan, which can be delivered safely within PSM and could include Physiotherapy, Strength & Conditioning, Dietetics and Soft Tissue Therapy as required.
Even after mild cases of COVID-19, some people are describing periods of prolonged fatigue and reduced exercise tolerance after recovering from the viral infection. In these cases, expert management and rehabilitation is needed.
