New Offering...Recovery and Reconditioning Program

Across the United States, thousands of people have been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Many individuals are also compromised by a variety of acute and chronic conditions, such as emphysema, after effects of the flu and cardiovascular disease. As you or your loved ones recover from COVID-19 or other debilitating illnesses and conditions, you may be left with varying levels of deconditioning and weakness. 

Our Recovery and Reconditioning Program was developed in partnership with leading physicians, including physiatrists and infectious disease specialists. It focuses on identifying key areas of weakness in patients. Our licensed physical and occupational therapists will develop a plan of care that will be tailored to your specific needs and goals. 

Please contact NovaCare to learn more about this program and which centers are offering it.
