Title: Treating Long COVID:  A Physiotherapy Perspective

Instructor: Jessica DeMars

Date and Time: February 18th, 2021. 8:00pm-9:00pm EST

Background/Relevance to Physiotherapy Practice:

There is growing evidence of a significant population of individuals affecting by symptoms of Covid19 infection for greater than 4 weeks.  These individuals may seek physiotherapy care and it is important to be aware of how to manage rehab for these individuals.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review current literature on Long Covid
  • Identify symptoms and characteristics of Long Covid
  • Review current understandings of Post Viral Fatigue and post exertional malaise
  • Review respiratory dysfunction in Long Covid
  • Identify treatable traits and how to manage them in a physiotherapy setting

Speaker’s Biography: 

Jessica DeMars graduated from the University of Alberta in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy (with distinction).  She continued her education with numerous post-graduate courses in manual therapy, myofascial release, and acupuncture.  Since 2006, she has investigated the role of breathing dysfunction in health through various courses and certifications.  This has evolved into a unique practice of addressing breathlessness in a variety of populations,  primarily in the context of respiratory disease.  In 2015 she was awarded a grant through the Clinical Research Innovation Fund and investigated the link between dysfunctional breathing and asthma in children.  With the onset of a respiratory pandemic in SARS-CoV2, she has transitioned to the treatment of Long Covid.
