Long COVID -
The Functional Neurology Approach
Presented by: Dr. John McClaren
The Role of Functional Neurology in Rehabilitation from Long-COVID: Utilization of concepts in Clinical Neuroscience to establish and improve rehabilitation paradigms
As the world continues to grapple with the impacts of COVID, many patients are experiencing ongoing symptoms of long-COVID. Healthcare providers have a vital role to play in helping those patients find resolutions to what are becoming chronic health issues. This program provides training on this topic and will cover diagnosis, pathophysiology, assessments, and treatment approaches to this multi-factorial condition.
Who is this class for?
The healthcare professionals that can attend this program are MD, DC, DO, PT, OT, ATC, LMT, ND, LAc, PA, NP, and CA (If accompanied by DC).

Included In Your Tuition
Re-attendance policy: Scholars who have registered and completed the program have the ability to re-attend the course with no additional fee. When re-attending a course, the scholar will not receive continuing education credits and will receive an audit.
