It is well established that after infection, there is a general period of physical deconditioning that occurs. This is characterized by a decrease in muscle mass and an increase in body fat. However, recent research has shown that there may be other mechanisms at play when it comes to exercise intolerance after COVID-19. In this blog post, we will explore some of the new perspectives on exercise intolerance after COVID-19.
There are many possibilities for exercise intolerance after a COVID-19 infection. These include physical deconditioning, inflammation, autonomic dysfunction, and cardiac dysfunction. While more research is needed to confirm these mechanisms, they provide new insights into the causes of exercise intolerance after COVID-19.
If you have had a recent COVID-19 infection and are experiencing exercise intolerance, speak to your healthcare provider. Together with your provider, you can discuss an exercise regimen specific to your situation.
