COVID-19 Rehab

Breathing Center of Houston has been helping patients with chronic lung disease regain strength, independence, and health for more than 12 years. Since the arrival of Covid-19, we have been able to use our specialized expertise, innovative protocols, and deep experience in pulmonary rehabilitation to assist patients recovering from COVID-19. Our program focuses on the physical and emotional challenges of getting back to everyday life.

Physical complications after COVID-19 can persist for months or even years, and include impairments in muscle strength, heart and lung capacity, pain, balance, endurance, and walking ability leading to a loss of function and independence.
