While most fitness professionals recognize the benefits of exercise for individuals with chronic diseases and disabilities, many avoid prescribing exercise programs for such individuals because of a lack of practical, easy-to-apply information on the subject.
Now, thanks to ACSM's Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities, clear and concise guidance is available for developing exercise programs for individuals with special health considerations. This one-of-a-kind book covers a wide range of chronic diseases and disabilities and for each condition provides the following information:
• Overview of the pathophysiology • Effects of the condition on the exercise response • Effects of exercise training on the condition • Management and medications • Recommendations for exercise testing • Recommendations for exercise programming • Suggested readings
Each chapter is written by a specialist who provides both theoretical and practical information on his or his field of expertise. And while it's not an all-encompassing reference on exercise testing and prescription, the book does provide clinical exercise personnel, health club personnel, personal trainers, and others with an excellent framework in which to guide individuals with disabilities, chronic diseases, or multiple conditions.
