Ryan Nall speaks with KATU2 about how PT can work to treat long-haul COVID patients

(KATU) — A knee injury or a shoulder tear will likely lead you to a physical therapy office, and now – so could COVID-19.

Physical therapists are working to improve long haulers’ functional capacity, much of which the novel coronavirus has hit hard.

Ryan Nall is a physical therapist with ProActive Physical Therapy. He’s worked with several long-COVID sufferers.

“I had a couple patients who had major symptoms, up to six months later, where they cannot even walk more than two to three minutes without having significant fatigue,” Nall explained.
