Our rehabilitation programme for COVID-19 patients 

Have you had a severe COVID-19 disease course caused by a coronavirus infection, and possibly even required intensive care surveillance and ventilatory support?

Our respiratory experts recommend our specialised pulmonary rehabilitation service at Schoen Clinic Berchtesgadener Land – a rehabilitation hospital beautifully located near Lake Königssee surrounded by a magnificent mountain panorama.

We have developed a specialised treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. We aim to improve your overall physical condition and, where necessary, your mental health and wellbeing as much as possible.

Breathe easily again after having COVID-19 infection.

Our rehabilitation offer for you and your wellbeing

Our pulmonary rehabilitation programme is specially designed for patients with post‑COVID‑19 syndrome (long COVID). We aim to restore your impaired lung function so that you can breathe more easily. To achieve this, we use a variety of respiratory physiotherapy techniques. In the case of long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT), we adjust the ventilator parameters optimally or, if possible, try to achieve complete weaning from mechanical ventilation. At the same time, we help you to strengthen your muscles and regain your physical fitness through exercise therapy as well as strength and endurance training. If required, we also offer psychological support in coping with your illness.

Our treatment for long COVID at a glance:

  • Adjustment of the individual oxygen therapy, if possible weaning according to guidelines
  • Medical training therapy (MTT), if necessary with neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)
  • Medicines optimisation
  • Respiratory physiotherapy techniques
  • Psychological support for coping with illness
  • Social service support for reintegration
  • Individualised care
