Reducing the effects of long COVID at our private long COVID clinic
COVID-19 has changed the lives of millions of people across the world. Some people lost their livelihoods, some lost their homes, some lost family members and some lost their lives. It affected every country in the world and even though the World Health Organisation or WHO say that COVID-19 is no longer a global health emergency, its effects can be seen worldwide. Millions of people have been left with lasting health issues after being infected by COVID-19. This is known as long COVID. Long COVID is when the symptoms of COVID-19 do not go away and there are no other explanations such as underlying health conditions. COVID-19 affected people differently. Some people were severely ill and lost their lives whilst others were asymptomatic. Most people were in between. This means that they had cold and flu symptoms, cough and fever, but worse than they had ever experienced before. Most people recovered within 10 to 14 days. Other patients found that their symptoms did not go away and even if they did they did not feel the same as they did prior to being infected by COVID-19.
Long COVID is thought to have affected 20% of the people that were infected by COVID-19. This is a massive number. Many people are suffering in silence across the world. At Rakhee Osteopathy over the last two years we have helped hundreds of patients address their symptoms at our private long COVID clinic London. It is important that you discuss your issues with a healthcare professional and that you do not suffer in silence. Long COVID can put your life on hold. If not treated properly then it may cause lasting health complications. Book an appointment at our private long COVID clinic London today. We will assess your symptoms and carry out a medical questionnaire to find out if there could be any possible underlying health conditions caused as a result of COVID-19 or exacerbated by being infected by COVID-19 that may be causing the symptoms. Once we have all the information we can provide you with a positive diagnosis for long COVID or refer you to your GP if we believe that there are other health complications.
Osteopathic massage for long COVID
At our private long COVID clinic London we help manage the symptoms of long COVID using osteopathic massage therapy. Osteopathy is a holistic approach and takes into consideration all aspects of your health and wellbeing. By carrying out specialist massage techniques we aim to increase fluid motion around your body. This includes the motion of blood and lymph. By increasing blood flow we hope to improve bodily functions and promote better vitality. By increasing the lymph flow around your body we hope to remove toxins from the body that may have accumulated as a result of COVID-19. By removing these toxins we hope to restore the optimal function of your body, restore homeostasis and slowly combat the symptoms of long COVID until they are gone completely. If you have been diagnosed with long COVID or you believe your symptoms point towards long COVID, speak to our clinic today and find out more.
