Description

They are your peers.  Your family.  Your friends. Your patients.  And now, many weeks after diagnosis, they still feel like they’re running at 60%.   

Technically speaking, they’ve recovered from COVID-19, yet the symptoms still linger – sometimes for over 100 days.  This group is now known as the “long haulers”.  

Whether you work in a hospital, long- term care, skilled care or home health, this course will provide a pathway toward rehabilitation and recovery.  With 89 years combined experience, Karen Pryor PhD, PT, DPT, ND, CH, CFPS and Shelly Denes PT, CFPS, C/NDT will provide a framework to: 

  • Create a multi-system evaluation 
  • Reset the autonomic nervous system and  
  • Successfully treat post-COVID patients 

They’ll show you how to immediately apply these strategies in your work. With their tried and true techniques, you will feel confident in your ability to help this growing population recover quickly and resume their normal lifestyle.
