Did you know that COVID-19 symptoms can sometimes persist for months?
If you are recovering from COVID-19, or any other significant illness or hospitalization, be sure to ask your medical team when it is safe to resume physical activity. “The old adage of move it or lose it has truth to it,” said Heilig. “Gradual resumption of physical activity and progressive exercise can prevent, decrease and even reverse the long-term negative effects on overall function and quality of life.”
