Green Bay, Wis. – Prevea Health now offers a COVID Recovery Clinic designed to help individuals who had COVID-19 and continue to suffer from COVID-19 symptoms long after the initial illness has subsided.
 
Often called “post-acute COVID-19 syndrome,” some people are experiencing ongoing symptoms preventing them from feeling “normal” even after recovering from the initial illness. According to the CDC, symptoms are being reported among COVID-19 survivors for months afterward in both young and old individuals and those who experienced a mild case of the illness. Lingering symptoms of post-acute COVID-19 syndrome may include shortness of breath, cough, fatigue, body aches, joint pain, difficulty sleeping, headaches, brain fog, gastrointestinal issues and dizziness. Anyone experiencing these ongoing symptoms 14 days or longer after they initially tested positive for COVID-19 may benefit from Prevea’s COVID Recovery Clinic services.
 
The COVID Recovery Clinic is a coordinated health care effort bringing together multidisciplinary teams and multiple medical specialties in order to coordinate care and help patients thoroughly manage their COVID-19 aftercare. This comprehensive team approach begins with an assessment by a primary care provider who then works closely with the patient to identify and navigate the all phases of their post-acute COVID-19 recovery, which may include referrals to other specialists, if needed.
 
Patients who are active adults or youth athletes may also receive return-to-sports assessments. These assessments help determine if individuals are healthy enough to return to the physical demands of their once active lifestyles.
