‘Long haul’ COVID rehab worse than cancer rehab, CDC – July 2021

‘Long haul’ COVID recovery worse than cancer rehab for some: CDC MedEdge

  • “People experiencing ongoing or “long-haul” symptoms after COVID-19 illness were more likely to report pain, challenges with physical activities, and “substantially worse health,” compared with people needing rehabilitation because of cancer, lead author Jessica Rogers-Brown, PhD, and colleagues report.”
  • “Compared with people referred for cancer rehabilitation, those with COVID-19 symptoms lasting beyond 4 weeks were
  • 2.3 times more likely to report pain,
  • 1.8 times more likely to report worse physical health, and
  • 1.6 times more likely to report difficulty with physical activities,
    • an adjusted odds ratio analysis reveals.
  • …” results indicate that post–COVID-19 patients specifically referred to a large physical rehabilitation network had poorer health measures than those referred for cancer, which indicates that some patients recovering from COVID-19 had substantial rehabilitation needs.”
