Bouncing Back from COVID-19: Your Guide to Restoring Movement
With dire news of COVID-19 continuing to roll out, here finally, is a glimmer of hope! A guidebook for patients who are in the stages of recovery from the virus – – that focuses on encouraging gentle movement and deep breathing.
This unique guidebook was developed by Dr. Peiting Lien, PT, DPT of Johns Hopkins Medicine, along with Tim Anderson and Dani Almeyda, the co-founders of Original Strength. According to Dr. Lien, “Early intervention through exercise and activity aimed at treating the whole person will play an important role in the recovery process and can be started at home during self-isolation.”
The guide shows three phases of recovery and presents easy exercises within segments labeled: Breathe Deep, Turn-on the Vestibular System, Engage in Crossbody Patterns, and Gain Endurance.
Dr. Lien and her team at John Hopkins Medicine believe this guide can also serve as a resource for anyone recovering, not only from COVID-19, but living with from any injury or surgery!
Have you or a family member experienced having the virus? How was your recovery? Would having this guidebook be of help? Will you incorporate some of the exercises into your daily routine?
