Exercise with medical conditions or after injury

Nothing should hold you back from living the life you want, that includes injuries and medical conditions. If you have a chronic condition, regular exercise can help you manage symptoms and improve your health. Aerobic exercise can help improve your heart health and endurance and aid in weight loss. Resistance training can improve the strength, anaerobic endurance and size of the skeletal muscles.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia…

"When properly performed, strength training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being, including increased bone, muscle, tendon, and ligament strength and toughness, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, increased metabolism, increased fitness and improved cardiac function."

(Medical conditions covered include; Coronary Heart Disease, Musculoskeletal diseases, Respiratory disease, Diabetes, Mellitus, Obesity & Metabolic Syndrome, Mental Health (stress, anxiety, depression)

Considerations

Exercise limitations and requirements in special populations e.g. obesity, hypertension, diabetes

Contraindications to exercise, risk factors, warning signs, symptoms.

Working under the NHS - NQAF guidelines

Developing individually based behavioural strategies for exercise and lifestyle, recognising and responding to warning signs and symptoms

Movement is key

You need to be able to move well.
This may seem like an obvious statement.
Many adults will have some kind of impingement that creates pain in their daily or weekly lives. These impingements are most likely created from imbalances in muscle groups, which create poor movement. If you can move in a pain-free way it will allow you to use your consciousness to focus on other areas of your life. Pain is a distraction, and moving well is a great start to eliminating most discomfort.

Creating a balanced program

When you build a house, you start with the foundations. You add the walls and then work on the plumbing and electricity. Each part of the process is added to the foundation that is keeping it structurally sound.
Building a body is the same. We must start with a foundation, a base, and then progress into the finer details of the body. Each addition is dependent on the previous step.
