This post and all to post #12 have been moved here from the BPS attempts at psychologising Long Covid thread. Links to Warwick University and National Institute of Health Research web pages in this post Eurekalert: New clinical trial to test whether structured exercise benefits 'long covid' patients Researchers at the University of Warwick and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust in the UK are to investigate whether a tailored online exercise and support programme would benefit those experiencing long-term symptoms of Covid-19 - what has been dubbed 'long Covid'. The results of the Rehabilitation Exercise and psycholoGical support After covid-19 InfectioN (REGAIN) trial will help to guide recommendations for treatment of people with long Covid, for whom there is currently only limited advice and guidelines available. ETA Due to social distancing restrictions, the trial will be conducted entirely online. ... Dr Gordon McGregor, a Clinical Exercise Physiologist, is Chief Investigator for the REGAIN trial at Warwick Clinical Trials Unit and UHCW NHS Trust. Dr McGregor said: "At a critical time in the treatment and recovery of patients with Covid-19 we are proud to be at the forefront of research into providing world class long term care. "The main aim of the REGAIN trial is to find out if we can improve people's quality of life with a single session of advice and support or an 8 week exercise and support programme. It's not just about improving fitness. It's about improving any aspect of people's lives; whatever they feel is important to them, or getting back what they may have lost after having Covid-19. For some people, that might be physical, for others it might be mental, or it could be a bit of both.
