Your Health, Objectively. Treating Everyone Right.
Dr. Richard Lehman, Medical Director at U.S. Center for Sports Medicine is joined by CORA’s Post-COVID Care Committee to form an expert panel! In case you missed it, the first panel of our 4-part series introduced the implementation of two recovery programs now at CORA: Post-Acute COVID Recovery and Deconditioning. Listen to the full session here, or visit our post-COVID recovery page to learn more about the investment our clinicians are making in patients for a safe and functional return to previous home, work and social roles.
Part 2 of our Post-COVID panel examines the growing importance of Deconditioning + Programs for Inactivity to counteract the affects of isolation with early intervention exercise and rehabilitation as societies return to normalcy. The negative side effects of inactivity across patient populations of all ages and abilities are increasingly exponentially as social distancing has forced us from our normal routines. A direct byproduct of limited activity is general deconditioning due to the sedentary lifestyle we’ve endured while being ordered to stay-at-home. Main concerns include decreased strength and aerobic capacity which are two of the more common tell-tale signs of deconditioning as our ability to seek preventative and maintenance services has been restricted. Our panel of experts address questions such as:
- Who is at risk for deconditioning and increased symptoms of chronic disease?
- What are some of the warning signs and symptoms of inactivity?
- What does a deconditioning program look like?
- Is there a certain level of decreased strength or aerobic capacity that is concerning? How does someone know whether they should consider the program?
- How is deconditioning measured? Are there certain benchmarks or fitness levels?
- Are those levels based on comparative norms for certain age groups?
- How do I know if it is safe to return to my normal sport or activity without risking injury?
The fact is those with existing conditions have not been able to effectively manage their symptoms while others will undoubtedly notice an increase in symptoms of chronic disease due to recent and elongated periods of stress and inactivity. We hope you join us for Part 2 of our panel series dedicated to bringing you vital facts and information on post-COVID recovery.
