Physical Therapy for Deep Vein Thrombosis
Everyone has been touched by COVID-19. Many lives have been lost and we are still experiencing the aftermath. Many think they have been lucky with few symptoms however there is an issue that is more prevalent then though. It is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
Many healthy individuals have experienced a DVT even when they had no symptoms at all. Some even had routine testing which still did not prevent them from developing a DVT. In our clinic, we have seen over 140 patients with DVT since March 31, 2020. Before that, we had seen 12 DVT's in 14 years. These were not post-procedural patients. These were patients who had never had any type of vascular procedure yet had DVT's in many parts of their bodies with no unknown reason. Some were very active (Peleton instructor, MMA fighters) and some were on medication to treat blood clots (Eliquis, Xarelto for atrial fibrillation) thus this population cannot be explained.
Regardless, using the latest guidelines and literature, our treatment plan will eradicate as much as your clot as possible, ensure circulation is corrected in the leg, and monitor you for possible issues in the future. We know that muscle loss is also a variable that must be addressed.
