Abstract

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2-also known as COVID-19-is primarily known for respiratory illness. Although it is clear that patients with moderate to severe cases of COVID-19 will require pulmonary rehabilitation, physiatrists will need to consider effective management plans for COVID-19 survivors with extrapulmonary involvement. This report will summarize key nonpulmonary considerations to guide rehabilitation clinicians who may be involved in the care of COVID-19 survivors with the best available early evidence.
