Title: Exercise and Chronic Disease

Exercise and Chronic Disease
  • Mark A. Patterson, M.Ed., RCEP
  • Clinical Exercise Physiologist Kaiser
  • President-Elect Rocky Mountain ACSM

Eating alone will not keep a man well he must
also take exercise. For food and exercise, while
possessing opposite qualities, yet work together
to produce health. Hippocrates, Regimen, 5th
Century B.C. Slide borrowed from Russ Pate and
Robert Salis

  • Registered Nurses
  • Physicians
  • Personal Trainers
  • Massage Therapists
  • Accupuncture
  • Chiropractors

What is Clinical Exercise Physiology?
  • The Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist is
    an allied health professional who works with
    apparently healthy people and patients with
    chronic diseases and conditions where exercise
    has been proven to provide therapeutic benefit.
    The RCEP performs exercise assessments and
    prescribes exercise and physical activity,
    primarily in hospitals, clinics or other
    health-care provider settings. The RCEP assists
    individuals in developing self-management skills
    to promote good health. The RCEP is an integral
    part of the health care team and works closely
    with other health professionals including
    Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners,
    Physician Assistants, Respiratory Therapists,
    Physical Therapists and Registered Dietitians.
  • RCEPs are trained to work with patients with
    chronic diseases such as Cardiovascular
    disease, pulmonary disease, diabetes,
    neuromuscular disorders, musculoskeletal
    conditions, obesity, cancer, end stage renal
    disease, neoplastic / immunological /
    hematological disorders

Functional Exercises
  • What is a functional exercise?
  • Exercise that is specific to and closely mimics
    task to be completed.
  • Walking lunge better to strengthen muscles to
    assist in increasing efficiency of walking /
    running than leg extensions.

  • Each patient is a delicate snowflake!
  • Make sure to get detailed history of disease,
    co-morbidities, check that risk factors are in
    control, prior exercise history, check for
    current symptoms and review support team and
    resources for exercise

What is the Risk of Exercise?
Exercise Prescription Tips
  • Cardiovascular
  • Medications (HR and BP)
  • Symptoms (CAD, CHF, PAD)
  • F.I.T. Principle Considerations
  • Importance of Warm Up and Cool Down
  • Do not hold your breath!

When can they start?
  • Assuming Patient is Medically Stable
  • All patients should start with slow progression
    of walking, stationary bike, etc.
  • PCI without MI exercise testing and more
    moderate exercise after about 4 weeks of
    consistent low intensity aerobic exercise.
  • MI with or without PCI exercise testing and
    more moderate exercise after about 4-6 weeks of
    consistent low intensity aerobic exercise.
  • CABG exercise testing and more moderate aerobic
    exercise about 4 weeks post surgery, moderate
    strength training about 12 weeks post surgery.
  • CHF Asymptomatic patients increase aerobic
    exercise very conservatively as can tolerate, if
    EF is below 30 strength training may be

Exercise Prescription Tips Peripheral Vascular
  • Claudication
  • Walking is a must Specificity
  • 2 Most Important Measures
  • 1. Onset of symptoms
  • 2. Maximum walk time
  • Intermittent Walking to Moderate Pain
  • High Risk of Heart Disease (CAD)
  • Add other modes of aerobic exercise to increase
    total conditioning time
  • Role of Strength Training
  • Non-Claudicant
  • Can prescribe exercise like people with heart
    disease / or at high risk for heart disease

Claudication and Strength Training

Diseases Superiority of Treadmill Walking
Exercise Versus Strength Training for Patients
with Peripheral Arterial Disease Implications
for the Mechanism of the Training Response.
Circulation 90(4) October 1994 1866-1874
Exercise Prescription Tips Lung Disease
  • Perceived Exertion vs. Shortness of Breath
  • Reliability of HR?
  • Aerobic
  • Walking Part of most activities of daily
  • Stationary Bike
  • Arm Ergometer
  • Importance of Strength Conditioning
  • 1. Improve efficiency of muscles / conservation
    of energy

Exercise Prescription Tips Diabetes
  • Monitor Blood Sugar Before and After
  • 250 with Ketones,
  • Post Exercise Hypoglycemia
  • Meals and Medications
  • Autonomic Neuropothy and HR
  • Peripheral Neuropothy and Wound Care

Exercise Prescription Tips Diabetes
  • Autonomic Neuropathy
  • Silent ischemia and infarction, tachycardia at
    rest and early in exercise, reduced max HR,
    exercise intolerance, exercise induced
    hypotension, thermoregulatory dysfunction, prone
    to dehydration and hypoglycemia unawareness.
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Loss of peripheral sensation, poor healing of
    wounds, overstretching can cause musculoskeletal
    injury, loss of balance, falling

Exercise Prescription Tips Diabetes
  • Aerobic
  • Frequency
  • 3-7 days per week
  • Intensity
  • 40-60 Moderate
  • 60 Vigorous
  • Time
  • 150 minutes / week moderate
  • 90 minutes / week vigorous
  • Resistance Training
  • Frequency
  • 3 days per week
  • Intensity
  • 8-10 repetitions
  • Volume of Exercise
  • 8 exercises
  • Aerobic Exercise Modes
  • Choose exercises such as stationary bike and
    eliptical trainers
  • - help with balance
  • - less chance of falling
  • Walking also a good choice as involved in most
    activities of daily living specificity
  • Resistance Training Modes
  • Machine weights are preferred at start since they
    can help with balance

Exercise Prescription Tips Multiple Sclerosis
  • Aerobic Exercise
  • 1. Perceptual Scale better for Exercise
  • 2. Adjust daily according to symptoms and energy
  • 3. Avoid exercise in heat, exercise early in day
    better for symptoms of fatigue
  • 4. Bladder issues can cause patients to not
    hydrate properly
  • Strength Training
  • 1. Optimize in unaffected muscle groups
  • 2. Functional exercises best, Emphasize core
  • 3. Increase rest period time
  • 4. During times increased symptoms focus
    stretching, ROM
  • 5. Weight machines preferred.

Exercise Prescription Tips Parkinsons Disease
  • Aerobic
  • Safety walking is preferred, but may need to
    use bike ergometer, eliptical, arm ergometer or
    others if symptoms warrant.
  • Balance devices harness, walking poles
  • Strength
  • Warm up important
  • Focus on exercises that extend the trunk
  • Functional exercises best
  • Auditory cues may be needed to help
  • with timing of repetitions
  • Ensure good posture

Exercise Prescription Tips Osteoarthritis
  • Weight Bearing Aerobic Exercise
  • Continuous weight bearing aerobic exercise can be
  • Careful with those who have severe osteoporosis
  • Water Walking against current may be a good
  • Exercises to improve balance
  • Minimize forward flexion and twisting movements
  • Can start with strength training
  • Can do combination of short bouts of aerobic
    training with strength training done during rest

Exercise Prescription Tips Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Can follow same basic guidelines as with
  • Avoid exercise during inflamatory phase

Exercise Prescription Tips Fibromyalgia
  • Must customize to individual
  • Careful to avoid overexertion
  • Progress slowly (water to land walking)

Exercise Prescription Tips Obesity
  • Walking important as is involved in most aspects
    of activities of daily living
  • If balance is an issue then stationary bikes and
    eliptical trainers are good option
  • Water walking and water aerobics ideal for those
    with problematic joints
  • Watch carefully for signs of cardiopulmonary and
    metabolic disease.

Exercise Prescription Tips Obesity
  • Strength Training
  • Machine weights may help with balance and help to
    ensure proper form
  • Light weights recommended with moderate to high
  • May be best option to concentrate on early as
    de-conditioning and joint issue may limit ability
    to perform aerobic exercise at onset of new

Exercise Prescription Tips AIDS
  • HIV
  • Exercise Rx must be adapted per stage of disease
  • Asymptomatic usual general ACSM guidelines are
  • Symptomatic need to adjust day to day, should
    not exercise with fever above 100, or if having
    nausea, vomiting, uncontrolled diarrhea or

Exercise Prescription Tips AIDS
  • Moderate better, overtraining increases
    likelihood of infections
  • Environment
  • Abrasions, tissue injuries
  • Cross infection, sharing of water bottles
  • Overseas travel

Exercise Prescription Tips AIDS
  • Exercise and Sickness
  • Common cold
  • Mild to moderate exercise OK
  • Intense exercise OK a few days after symptoms
  • Fever, extreme fatigue, muscle aches best to
    wait 2-4 weeks before resuming intense exercise

Exercise and Dialysis
  • Effects of Kidney Disease and Long Term Dialysis
  • bone disease, fatigue, coronary artery disease
    and rhythm disturbances

Exercise and Dialysis
  • Because of the reduction in cardiovascular risk
    factors that results from exercise training, and
    because of the need to prevent progressive
    deconditioning, dialysis patients may actually be
    placed at a greater risk for cardiac events and
    adverse musculoskeletal outcomes in the are not
    participating in regular physical activity Adv
    Ren Repl Ther, Vol 6, No 2, 1999 pp 165-171

Exercise and Dialysis
Exercise and Dialysis
  • Exercise Tips
  • Breathing is at conversational level
  • Feel complete recovery in one hour post exericse
  • Warm up and cool down essential
  • Expect some mild soreness after exercise but not
    so much that it prevents activity.
  • When Not to Exercise
  • Body temperature 101.0 degrees (38.3 degrees C)
  • Missed more than one treatment
  • Newly undiagnosed illness
  • Pain
  • Not feeling well
  • Blood Pressure
  • Unstable sugar levels
