Colorado physical therapist offers free screenings for COVID-19 long-haulers
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (KDVR) — A Fort Collins physical therapist is offering free screenings to any patient concerned they may be battling with COVID-19 long haul symptoms.
“The common thing we are seeing with long-haulers is difficulty breathing with the rib cage, either because of anxiety or fear or just from being immobilized for a while if they were bed ridden, they get stiff,” said Terry Gebhardt with Colorado in Motion. “That’s where we really shine, is opening things up and getting the patient moving better to help be pain free.”
The free screenings include a timed up and go test, a six-minute walk test, a sit-to-stand test, a functional outcome survey and a check of vitals.
