Rehabilitation Long COVID-19

This rehabilitation program has been developed for people, still coping with physical and neurological complications of a COVID-19 infection. Long COVID symptoms such as a decline of motoric functions, breathlessness, cough, unspecific fears, panic attacks or reduced general resilience are common.

At Rehaklinik Zihlschlacht you will benefit from our longstanding experience in neurorehabilitation and the unique holistic approach, that factors in a wide variety of therapies with a world class medical team and infrastructure. With the proposed three-weeks program, we will help you to overcome Long Covid-19.
