Long COVID is a relatively new disorder that is marked by chronic health complications following an acute infection of COVID-19. Approximately 10 per cent of people that contract SARS-CoV-2 continue to be in poor health three weeks after the initial onset. Currently, there are no standardised treatment methods for those suffering with long COVID due to the marked variation between individual experiences.

The subject of the study suffered with gastrointestinal pain, distention and irritable bowel for four months after initial infection. After using a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, the patient’s pain disappeared, the stools became formed and regular and distention was minimal. This case illustrates the possibility of using traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as a viable treatment for long COVID.
