Long Covid

Respiratory physio Covid

Ruth Ainley is a specialist respiratory physiotherapist with PhysiosOnline and Clear Path Physiotherapy.

When Covid struck, Ruth immediately went to work to support the NHS in an acute hospital setting, where she helped treat people with serious Covid-19 related illness. She speaks about some of the impressive recoveries she saw in people who had been seriously ill with the condition.

Since returning to her independent physiotherapy clinic, Ruth has been treating people affected by Long Covid symptoms.

We discuss the issue of Long Covid, the problems with having so little scientific data to go on, and the importance of validating patients’ experience of these symptoms.

You can attend Ruth in person at her clinic in London Clear Path Physiotherapy or book an appointment with her for a physiotherapy video consultation here. Ruth takes referrals from consultants, GPs and self-referrals.
