About this item

From the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and specialists from around the world, this 32-chapter guide outlines a framework for exercise management for people with chronic diseases and disabilities. It describes basic physical activity and exercise recommendations, clinical exercise programming, and counseling and socioeconomic factors (in a new section), then common chronic conditions, cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases, immunological, hematological, and organ failure, neuromuscular conditions, and cognitive and psychological disorders, with information on pathophysiology, management and medications, effects on the exercise response and training, recommendations for exercise testing and programming, and integration into a medical home model. This edition has new content on comorbid conditions; discussion of less common conditions; new basic recommendations; current evidence on exercise management for people with multiple conditions; a refocused goal of using physical activity to optimize functionality and participation in life activities, rather than treating disease; content on prescribing physical activity for health, well-being, and longevity; and reorganized case studies into one chapter.
