NEW YORK (AP) - Dozens of clinics have cropped up around the U.S. to address a puzzling and troubling aspect of COVID-19 - the after-effects that can stubbornly afflict some people weeks or months after the infection itself has subsided.
The programs aim to treat and give credence to so-called long-haulers, the patients who cannot get free of the virus that has infected more than 23 million Americans and killed over 390,000 of them.
Falcon Clinic in Washington Mills is providing local long-haulers various effective treatments.
"We have some osteopathic techniques and acupuncture based on physiologic function, that we can turn that around,” said Richard Chmielewski, COVID resource consultant at the clinic. “And we've been treating people who've had COVID months before, not presently, and they've done extremely well."
The clinic also offers virtual appointments for treatments, advice and test reviews. Telemedicine appointments can be made over Zoom. For more information, click here.
