RECOVE [Rehabilitation for Post-COVID-19 Syndrome Through a Supervised Exercise Intervention]

Goal: This is a randomized controlled trial of the efficacy of a tailored, multicomponent exercise training with post-COVID-19 syndrome (i.e. patients who present symptoms >12 weeks once the acute phase of the disease is over). The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of a tailored exercise-based treatment relative to the control arm in improving the subject clinical status in ambulatory patients.

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, is leading to unknown and unusual health conditions that are challenging to manage. Post-COVID-19 syndrome is one of those challenges, having become increasingly common as the pandemic evolves. The latest estimates suggest that 10 to 20% of the SARS-CoV-2 patients who undergo an acute symptomatic phase are experiencing effects of the disease beyond 12 weeks after diagnosis. Although research is beginning to examine this new condition, there are still serious concerns about the diagnostic identification, which limits the best therapeutic approach. Exercise programs and physical activity levels are well-known modulators of the clinical manifestations and prognosis in many chronic diseases. This narrative review summarizes the up-to-date evidence on post-COVID-19 syndrome to contribute to a better knowledge of the disease and explains how regular exercise may improve many of these symptoms and could reduce the long-term effects of COVID-19.
