To map available scientific evidence on rehabilitation in the daily lives of people with post-covid-19 neurological sequelae.


This is a scoping review according to the guidelines of the Joanna Briggs Institute. The included studies were based on the mnemonic strategy participants/ problem (adult people with neurological sequelae), concept (rehabilitation in everyday life) and context (covid-19 pandemic), with timeframe from 2020 to 2022, available in the seven selected databases, in Portuguese, English and Spanish, collected and analyzed according to PRISMA-ScR.


A total of 1,027 studies were recovered, and the sample consisted of 11 articles that presented rehabilitation programs for sequelae: fatigue, anosmia, cognitive and neuropsychological disorders. Among the main rehabilitation programs found, the following stand out: progression walking, breathing exercises; olfactory training using essential oils and cognitive approaches. From the findings, the rehabilitation process has been shown to be effective for the management of post-covid-19 neurological sequelae, and should be started early.


Rehabilitation programs should involve a multidisciplinary team, since the disease presents persistent multisystemic symptoms, involving a holistic approach, which encompasses behavioral aspects related to self-care, physical rehabilitation, emotional support and health education, promoting recovery and improving the quality of life of individuals affected by the disease.
