Abstract

Aims: The purpose of this study was to see how telerehabilitation affected post-viral tiredness following COVID-19.

Study Design: Narrative Review.

Materials and Methods: Various computerised data bases were used to conduct a structured Literature search. PubMed, Google Scholar, Pedro, American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), World Health Organization (WHO), World Confederation Physical Therapy (WCPT), Medscape, Research-gate Embase, American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), World Health Organization (WHO), World Confederation Physical Therapy (WCPT), Medscape, Research-gate Embase Clinical trials, randomised controlled trials, cross-sectional studies, cohort studies, and literature reviews were all part of the search strategy. The search was restricted to English literature alone.

Result: A total of 75 items were found in various electronic databases. Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, 57 articles containing actual substance were shortlisted. Telerehabilitation in post-viral fatigue syndrome following covid 19 had a good effect on the patients, according to the study. It helps individuals with Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome increase their breathing rate, physical strength, and overall function.

Conclusion: This narrative review of the literature discovered that physiotherapy therapies, particularly Telerehabilitation, have a good effect in post-viral fatigue following covid19. Telerehabilitation has a greater impact on reducing the symptoms of post viral fatigue syndrome patients and will aid in their recovery. The things taught in Telerehabilitation also assist a lot, and the exercise improves the cardiovascular system by increasing HR (heart rate), breathing rate, body temperature, and blood pressure (Blood pressure).

Keywords: Telerehablitation, COVID-19, respiratory diseases, post viral fatigue syndrome
