MyoWorx and Post-COVID-19 Syndrome

Post-COVID-19 syndrome, long-COVID or “Long-haul COVID” is the blanket diagnosis given to people who experience new or persisting health problems after being infected with the COVID-19 virus.  From the Mayo clinic, the symptoms of Long-COVID are listed here:

The most commonly reported symptoms of post-COVID-19 syndrome include:

  • Fatigue
  • Symptoms that get worse after physical or mental effort
  • Fever
  • Lung (respiratory) symptoms, including difficulty breathing or shortness of breath and cough

Other possible symptoms include:

  • Neurological symptoms or mental health conditions, including difficulty thinking or concentrating, headache, sleep problems, dizziness when you stand, pins-and-needles feeling, loss of smell or taste, and depression or anxiety
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Heart symptoms or conditions, including chest pain and fast or pounding heartbeat
  • Digestive symptoms, including diarrhea and stomach pain
  • Blood clots and blood vessel (vascular) issues, including a blood clot that travels to the lungs from deep veins in the legs and blocks blood flow to the lungs (pulmonary embolism)
  • Other symptoms, such as a rash and changes in the menstrual cycle

The “newness” of this syndrome means that the medical community is still working on figuring out the details of why some people experience 100% recovery from COVID-19, and others develop Post-COVID-19 Syndrome. There are also still questions about what causes persistent symptoms and, of course, how to treat them.

At MyoWorx, we noticed significant similarities between the symptoms of Post-COVID-19 Syndrome and those of post-concussion syndrome (PCS).  

Since we are effectively able to treat all of the symptoms of PCS with MyoWorx, we wondered if it could be possible to use the same approach for the symptoms of Post-COVID-19 Syndrome.  We are still in the early phases of answering this question with several case studies, but our results thus far are demonstrating that MyoWorx exercises are effective at reducing these symptoms for Post-COVID-19 syndrome patients.
