Watch the webinar recording to learn how you can help long-COVID patients regain their physical fitness with examples from real patients.
Watch the webinar recording, where guest speaker Dr. Kasper Janssen and Firstbeat Master Trainer Tiina Hoffman discuss the importance of recovery when working with patients suffering from Long COVID, and the value that Firstbeat Life data can play in highlighting poor recovery and the steps needed to improve, with real-life examples from a patient case study.
Did you know that according to the World Health Organization, at least 17 million people in the European region have experienced long COVID, with common symptoms including fatigue, shortness of breath, and muscle ache?
The worst of the pandemic may be over, but long COVID continues to affect the health of millions of people all over the world. Dr. Kasper Janssen, a sports & exercise physician based in the Netherlands, has been working closely with long COVID patients and found that the usual treatments were not effective.
However, after his intervention study identified the key symptoms and developed a gradually progressing protocol, Dr. Janssen found that by focusing first on recovery, including taking breaks, developing healthy sleep, and good nutrition, patients could gradually return to exercising again and regain their physical fitness.
