Physical therapy clinic offers free service for Long COVID volunteers

Steamboat Springs physical therapist Gregg Johnson of Johnson & Johnson Physical Therapy is offering an opportunity for people suffering from Long COVID to receive a one-hour free visit for evaluation as part of a proposed study project.

Johnson has treated patients with Long COVID for the past 18 months and is interested in setting up a research project with volunteer patients to study the impact of manual therapy on the diagnosis.

The free appointments can be scheduled starting Tuesday. Each person will receive a one-hour visit; then after the initial evaluation, Johnson will work with patients to determine if there will be free follow-up appointments.

So far, the clinic has treated about 40 individuals of all ages with a Long COVID diagnosis. Johnson said that many patients have reported improvements in symptoms through the manual therapy offered to enhance autonomic nervous system function.

For more information on the research study, interested individuals can contact the Johnson & Johnson clinic at 1560 Pine Grove Road, Suite B, in Steamboat or by email at
