SIMFEROPOL, 8 Feb - RIA Novosti Crimea. Rehabilitation after suffering COVID-19 is important, but each patient must be treated individually. Oleg Matveev, Candidate of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department of Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, Physiotherapy and Physical Education of the KFU Medical Academy, announced this on the air of the Sputnik in Crimea radio.
"It is impossible to give any standards of rehabilitation, it must be an individual approach. The main task of rehabilitation is to improve the quality (of life). After suffering a coronavirus, there should be a general effect on the entire body," he said.
According to the head of the Department of Internal Medicine of the 2nd Medical Academy named after S.I. Georgievsky Crimean Federal University named after V.I. Vernadsky, Professor Vladimir Beloglazov, coronavirus causes problems with blood vessels and affects all organs.
"It affects the nervous system, kidneys, heart. Patients can also exacerbate chronic diseases. Without rehabilitation, the consequences can be unpredictable," he added.
In addition, experts do not recommend taking various vitamins and any drugs that they have not been prescribed by the attending physician for prophylaxis.
"Some multivitamins worsen the course of a number of diseases. We can only advise you to gradually increase your physical activity and take care of your health, as well as constantly be under the supervision of specialists. This is what medical resorts are important, where a person receives qualified medical care for 24 days," Beloglazov noted.
Earlier, the RIA Novosti Crimea website reported that a vacation in Crimea with COVID-19 rehabilitation programs became the sales leader in the first month of 2021.
