Gradual Return to Physical Activity Following COVID-19 Recovery

Before resuming physical activity, people with chronic symptoms, those who have had a severe type of COVID-19, and those who may have a history of cardiopathy should see a doctor.

People who have had a minor case of COVID-19 and wish to get back into physical exercise should do so slowly.

Start with at least two weeks of limited activity and wait at least seven days if you haven't had any symptoms.

Some persons have a protracted recovery time after a minor case of COVID-19, especially when trying to resume activity. Furthermore, COVID-19 may cause long-term problems in many people, such as chronic COVID syndrome (post-COVID syndrome or extended COVID), cardiovascular illness. Physical activity has been shown to provide several health advantages, both cardiovascular and mental. Physical inactivity, on the other hand, is a major risk factor for noncommunicable illnesses across the world, much as smoking and obesity are. Prior to the COVID-19 epidemic, the majority of adults were sedentary for the bulk of the day and did not fulfill physical activity requirements. Since the beginning of the pandemic, persons with chronic illnesses including obesity and hypertension, which are linked to severe forms of COVID-19, have been doing less physical activity. Brief counsel can encourage people to engage in physical exercise, which has several health benefits, as well as assist those recuperating from sickness in returning to prior levels of physical activity or exceeding them. Some people may be unsure about how and when to restart physical activity following COVID-19, as well as whether or not it is safe to do so. Some people may have attempted to return to their baseline workout but were unable to do so.
