Local 12: Advice for exercising post-COVID-19

Michael Donaworth, assistant professor of orthopaedics in the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and a UC Health physician, spoke with Local 12 news about ways to safely begin exercising after recovering from COVID-19. Donaworth, who specializes in sports medicine, says the advice doctors give with COVID-19 is different from what you might hear after recovering from the common flu or cold. Often physicians want to see their patients return to physical activity. But after COVID-19 some patients still might experience conditions such as blood clots of myocarditis so there is extra caution. A slow return to sports and athletics is the most likely pathway, explains Donaworth.
