If you contracted COVID-19 and you’re still feeling some lingering effects (a.k.a. Long COVID), Swords Oxygen Centre could provide you with some relief.

Some symptoms of Long COVID include:

  • Shortness of breath

  • Persistent cough

  • Muscle aches

  • Loss of taste and smell

  • Fatigue

Lung Problems

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is often used in treating lung conditions like asthma or smoke inhalation. Because COVID-19 primarily affects the lungs, many post-COVID patients continue to report a shortness of breath or persistent cough. Though research is currently ongoing into how it works, we’ve seen first-hand the way Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can relieve some of those symptoms and help clients in their recovery.

Muscle Aches

We use Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to treat both musculoskeletal problems and inflammatory conditions like arthritis. The same therapy can be applied to some of the long-term muscle aches associated with Long COVID. Aches and pains are your body’s way of telling you there’s something wrong and by getting highly-oxygenated blood to damaged tissue, we can help that tissue repair itself, relieving the pain.


Conditions associated with fatigue are little-understood, but Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has often been used to treat Chronic Fatigue and Post-Viral Fatigue conditions. Given that Long COVID falls into the latter category, it’s possible to use Oxygen Therapy to relieve the severity of fatigue symptoms for Long COVID sufferers.
