Long COVID

We have all been experiencing challenges in different ways over the past 2 years with the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately for some people there are ongoing challenges and up to 20% experience long term effects of COVID-19. Long COVID presents differently for each person in terms of the symptoms, the intensity, and the duration.

Common Symptoms include:

  • extreme fatigue (tiredness)
  • shortness of breath, heart palpitations, chest pain or tightness
  • problems with memory and concentration
  • changes to taste and smell
  • joint and muscle pain

Symptoms can be:

  • fluctuating, with good and bad days
  • progressive, with greater difficulty managing day to day tasks
  • continuous, with constant impact on your life

Empower Rehab specialise in providing integrated rehabilitation (including physiotherapy, psychology and medical) to help reduce the Long COVID symptoms you may be experiencing and improve your function in all areas of life (e.g., home, social and work).

New Location, Bigger Team

Empower Rehab and Psychology are excited to announce its new location at 365 Bell St, Bellfield, Victoria.

In response to increased demand for psychology services we have recruited more staff and we are pleased to advise we are taking new referrals. We are now able to assess new clients within 4 – 8 weeks from referral.

Wellness throughout the Life-Span

At Empower Rehab and Psychology we work with individuals aged 18+ and many of our clinicians have a special interest in working with older adults. We are passionate about focusing on meeting the needs of older adults. Targeted psychological therapy can facilitate improved health and well-being in later life. In addition, we’ll soon be offering workshops and education sessions in this space.
