Early treatment helps change the course of the patient's recovery in a positive way, announces

Individuals who receive physical therapy following COVID-19 have lower mortality rates, according to a recent study presented at the Association of Academic Physiatrists Annual Meeting. Researchers examined patients who were older and had more comorbidities. In addition, their level of physical function before their hospitalization for COVID was lower than that of patients who didn't receive physical therapy.

The therapy helped to lower their mortality rates to 12 percent. In contrast, the group that didn't receive physical therapy had a mortality rate of 25 percent. This study shows the importance of physical therapy for individuals who become infected with the virus, and Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness Services in Denver, CO is ready to help.

"Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness offers a Variety of Therapeutic Services. This includes craniofacial pain & TMJ treatment, dry needling, functional movement screening, hand therapy & splinting. Our team helps patients with headaches, injury risk management, instrument-assisted soft tissue treatment, Kinesio therapy, lymphedema, and manual therapy. Contact us to learn more about our men & women's health services, pre-employment screening, return to sports training, running analysis, TRX training, and vestibular therapy. Our physical therapists work with clients to determine which services will benefit them as they recover from the virus and its long-term effects," Maggie Wetzel, spokesperson for Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness, reports.

Physical therapists find early treatment benefits patients. They believe doing so might allow them to change the course of the patient's recovery for the better. As the elderly remain at the highest risk of complications from COVID, any therapy that improves their outcome needs consideration. Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness also refers clients to physicians if they need additional treatment, and the patient does not know where to turn.

"We want to help patients in any way we can. For this reason, we work with clients to find the best surgeon or specialty doctor that suits their unique needs. In fact, we offer a free phone consultation for individuals. They call in and share information about their physical ailments, and the team makes recommendations on physicians that may treat them. Individuals may choose this option or ask for help in finding a doctor when they come for an appointment," Wetzel continues.

To help physicians offer the highest level of care for patients, including those suffering from COVID-19, Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness now offers practice management services. They help business owners simplify operations while improving revenue. Furthermore, the services allow practitioners to return their focus to offering care rather than handling back-office tasks.

" Contact us to learn about the Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness: Occupational Therapy and Practice Management services. We currently work with seven large orthopedic groups and would love to help you, regardless of your location in the United States. We have provided staffing and management services to physician groups in their locations since 2012 and will be happy to do the same for you," Wetzel states.
