Patient Spotlight – George Alvarez

March 5, 2021 3:38 pm / Category: Uncategorized

George tested positive for COVID-19 in early November 2020 and was hospitalized for 36 days, on a ventilator for five of those days. He received physical therapy while in the hospital, which prepared him for his outpatient rehab. Three weeks after his release from the hospital in early January 2021, George began his physical therapy with Dr. Rebecca Gasca at our Laguna Niguel Rausch Physical Therapy location.

George had heard about Rausch Physical Therapy through a friend, and when he came in for his initial evaluation, he was extremely impressed with the outstanding, laser-focused evaluation that he received from Rebecca. She diagnosed that his back muscles were very tight due to COVID and that his balance needed improvement, as well as his weak core and weak leg muscles.

After recovering from COVID and his hospital stay, George had a ways to go in order to get back to the bike rides that he enjoyed so much. He spent his time with Rebecca working on balance, endurance, flexibility, and core strength. After all of his dedication and hard work, George now feels more energetic and flexible. Just last week, he was able to get back on his bike for his first ride since his recovery! George can not express enough how much his time working with Rebecca helped him get back to his peak physical strength and activity after COVID.
