Rehabilitation for COVID patients that have experienced problems with their lungs
Our Doctors of Physical Therapy have almost 3 decades of experience treating patients with primary and secondary lung disorders.
Dr. Gaspar previously served as Rehabilitation Director of a lung hospital in Orange County.
Our team evaluates each patient as an individual and typically monitors their:
- Breathing technique
- Exercise capacity
- Daily activity capacity
We provide strategies to conserve energy and build energy and breathing reserves.
We constantly assess patients' cardiovascular status and pulmonary responses, adding pulse oximetry and respiratory rate.
Patients with undue shortness of breath, inability to exercise, and/or low inspiratory power may be prescribed inspiratory muscle training (IMT) as an option or in addition to typical aerobic and strengthening exercise.
