Post-COVID patient rehabilitation on the basketball court

TIRR Memorial Hermann and the Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation Network are leading the charge in functional rehabilitation of individuals who no longer test positive after having had COVID-19. The hospital’s evidence-based interventions allow patients to go beyond the clinical setting, providing them with the opportunity to participate in important life roles in home, work, volunteer and community environments.

Due to the nature of the virus, many patients experience difficulty breathing, even after the virus leaves the body. Patients who required ventilators are at even higher risk of long-term effects. Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 may also experience muscular atrophy and physical weakness, a loss of balance and coordination, and cognitive issues due to reduced oxygen to the brain. The impairments faced by people recovering from COVID-19 are similar but unique to the person. Our team customizes therapy and care for individuals based on their personal goals.
