How to recover from long covid 19?

Long covid symptoms can show quite wide variations.

start gentile and easy with exercises

Having said this, the clients I have seen with long covid 19 had similar symptoms.

They have been significantly deconditioned, dramatically reducing their cardiovascular endurance and physical strength.
Further, all my clients have had some information about the heart, around the heart, or both. (Myocarditis and Pericarditis).

Even light tasks and activities can easily overload them and exhaust these clients.

Hence, long covid sufferers must contact a physiotherapist that is a rehabilitation specialist. To obtain this specialised knowledge, a rehabilitation and sports physiotherapy education like Sports Physical Therapist from the International Academy for Sportscience or a Master in Sports physiotherapy is required.


The key to recovery from Covid 19 is UNDERLOADING and pacing.

If necessary, a detailed plan includes breaks and additional sleep during the sessions. The key is pacing and underloading. We want to avoid set back as much as possible. Instead, we are aiming for small gradual steps of progress.
