A recent op-ed in the Washington Post, written by American author Madeline Miller, describes how living with Long COVID has changed her life. She details her frustration, her fears, and the daily struggles she endures with no knowledge of when it will end. Unfortunately, her story is not unique…
As a practice specializing in chronic illnesses, we understand the physical, emotional, and mental toll that conditions such as Long COVID can take on your life.
We understand that living with unanswered questions, the fear of being doubted, and the persistence of your symptoms may leave you feeling frustrated, isolated, and disheartened.
We understand that though research is progressing rapidly, and medical professionals are learning more and more about this complex condition every day, these words may be of little consolation.
Like other complex chronic illnesses, Long COVID causes a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems which can quickly derail your life. But we want to assure you that you are not alone and there is hope.
Long COVID is a multi-system condition that looks a lot like other chronic illnesses we have seen in our clinic that have started with an infection. But, with the right support team and a multidisciplinary treatment approach in place, you will find ways to adapt, cope and heal.
Our message to you is: Do not hesitate to seek support from your loved ones, healthcare providers, and mental health professionals. Self-compassion and patience will be essential companions on your journey and every step you take, no matter how small, is a step towards healing.
We have created a multi-disciplinary program at our Center for people with Long COVID symptoms. We have decades of experience treating complex conditions and we’re ready to help you address the physical and emotional impacts of this disease. Please give us a call to find out how we can help you improve the quality of your life today.
We are here for you, and we want to help.
Our goal is to return you to optimal health as soon as possible. To schedule an appointment please call: 703-532-4892 x2
