Single blind, randomised controlled trial of pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, vaginal cones, and no treatment in management of genuine stress incontinence in women. (1/3429)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, vaginal cones, and no treatment for genuine stress incontinence. DESIGN: Stratified, single blind, randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Multicentre. PARTICIPANTS: 107 women with clinically and urodynamically proved genuine stress incontinence. Mean (range) age was 49.5 (24-70) years, and mean (range) duration of symptoms 10.8 (1-45) years. INTERVENTIONS: Pelvic floor exercise (n=25) comprised 8-12 contractions 3 times a day and exercise in groups with skilled physical therapists once a week. The electrical stimulation group (n=25) used vaginal intermittent stimulation with the MS 106 Twin at 50 Hz 30 minutes a day. The vaginal cones group (n=27) used cones for 20 minutes a day. The untreated control group (n=30) was offered the use of a continence guard. Muscle strength was measured by vaginal squeeze pressure once a month. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Pad test with standardised bladder volume, and self report of severity. RESULTS: Improvement in muscle strength was significantly greater (P=0.03) after pelvic floor exercises (11.0 cm H2O (95% confidence interval 7.7 to 14.3) before v 19.2 cm H2O (15.3 to 23.1) after) than either electrical stimulation (14.8 cm H2O (10. 9 to 18.7) v 18.6 cm H2O (13.3 to 23.9)) or vaginal cones (11.8 cm H2O (8.5 to 15.1) v 15.4 cm H2O (11.1 to 19.7)). Reduction in leakage on pad test was greater in the exercise group (-30.2 g; -43. 3 to 16.9) than in the electrical stimulation group (-7.4 g; -20.9 to 6.1) and the vaginal cones group (-14.7 g; -27.6 to -1.8). On completion of the trial one participant in the control group, 14 in the pelvic floor exercise group, three in the electrical stimulation group, and two in the vaginal cones group no longer considered themselves as having a problem. CONCLUSION: Training of the pelvic floor muscles is superior to electrical stimulation and vaginal cones in the treatment of genuine stress incontinence.  (+info)

Increased orthostatic tolerance following moderate exercise training in patients with unexplained syncope. (2/3429)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a programme of simple, moderate exercise training increases blood volume and improves orthostatic tolerance in patients with attacks of syncope or near syncope related to orthostatic stress. DESIGN: An open study in 14 patients referred with unexplained attacks of syncope, who were shown to have a low tolerance to an orthostatic stress test. Measurements were made of plasma and blood volumes, orthostatic tolerance to a test of combined head up tilt and lower body suction, and baroreceptor sensitivity by applying subatmospheric pressures to a chamber over the neck. Cardiorespiratory fitness was assessed from the relation between heart rate and oxygen uptake during a graded treadmill exercise test. Assessments were made before and after undertaking an exercise training programme (Canadian Air Force 5BX/XBX). RESULTS: After the training period, 12 of the 14 patients showed evidence of improved cardiorespiratory fitness. All 12 patients were symptomatically improved; they showed increases in plasma and blood volumes and in orthostatic tolerance, and decreases in baroreceptor sensitivity. Despite the improved orthostatic tolerance, values of blood pressure both while supine and initially following tilting were lower than before training. CONCLUSIONS: Exercise training has a role in the management of patients with syncope and poor orthostatic tolerance. It improves symptoms and increases orthostatic tolerance without increasing resting blood pressure.  (+info)

Randomized, controlled trial of long-term moderate exercise training in chronic heart failure: effects on functional capacity, quality of life, and clinical outcome. (3/3429)

BACKGROUND: It is still a matter of debate whether exercise training (ET) is a beneficial treatment in chronic heart failure (CHF). METHODS AND RESULTS: To determine whether long-term moderate ET improves functional capacity and quality of life in patients with CHF and whether these effects translate into a favorable outcome, 110 patients with stable CHF were initially recruited, and 99 (59+/-14 years of age; 88 men and 11 women) were randomized into 2 groups. One group (group T, n=50) underwent ET at 60% of peak &f1;O2, initially 3 times a week for 8 weeks, then twice a week for 1 year. Another group (group NT, n=49) did not exercise. At baseline and at months 2 and 14, all patients underwent a cardiopulmonary exercise test, while 74 patients (37 in group T and 37 in group NT) with ischemic heart disease underwent myocardial scintigraphy. Quality of life was assessed by questionnaire. Ninety-four patients completed the protocol (48 in group T and 46 in group NT). Changes were observed only in patients in group T. Both peak &f1;O2 and thallium activity score improved at 2 months (18% and 24%, respectively; P<0. 001 for both) and did not change further after 1 year. Quality of life also improved and paralleled peak VO2. Exercise training was associated both with lower mortality (n=9 versus n=20 for those with training versus those without; relative risk (RR)=0.37; 95% CI, 0.17 to 0.84; P=0.01) and hospital readmission for heart failure (5 versus 14; RR=0.29; 95% CI, 0.11 to 0.88; P=0.02). Independent predictors of events were ventilatory threshold at baseline (beta-coefficient=0.378) and posttraining thallium activity score (beta-coefficient -0.165). CONCLUSIONS: Long-term moderate ET determines a sustained improvement in functional capacity and quality of life in patients with CHF. This benefit seems to translate into a favorable outcome.  (+info)

Effect of number of home exercises on compliance and performance in adults over 65 years of age. (4/3429)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is limited research on the effects of the number of exercises a person is told to perform on compliance and performance, as defined by cueing requirements, correct alignment, and quality of movement. Some studies of medication suggest that compliance decreases as the number of medications increases. The purpose of this study was to determine whether older adults comply and perform better (ie, requiring less cueing, exhibiting correct alignment, and exhibiting controlled, coordinated, and continuous movements) when they are asked to do 2, 5, or 8 exercises. SUBJECTS: Subjects were 11 women and 4 men, aged 67 to 82 years (X=72.8), who were living independently in their communities. METHODS: Subjects were randomly prescribed 2, 5, or 8 general strengthening home exercises. They were instructed on their exercises at an initial session and asked to record the number of repetitions performed each day in a self-report exercise log. At a return session 7 to 10 days later, subjects were scored on their performance of the prescribed exercises using a newly designed assessment tool. RESULTS: The group that was prescribed 2 exercises performed better, as defined by their performance tool score, than the group that was prescribed 8 exercises. The group that was prescribed 5 exercises was not different from the groups that performed 2 or 8 exercises. No differences were found among groups regarding the self-report measurement of compliance. There was a moderate correlation between performance scores and the self-report percentage rates. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: Subjects who were prescribed 2 exercises performed better than subjects who were prescribed 8 exercises. The question of an optimal number of exercises to prescribe to elderly people warrants further study.  (+info)

Effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with multi-strand semitendinosus tendon. (5/3429)

To evaluate the effects of aggressive early rehabilitation on the clinical outcome of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon, 103 of 110 consecutive patients who underwent ACL reconstruction using multistrand semitendinosus tendon (ST) or the central one-third of patellar tendon with bony attachments (BTB) were analyzed prospectively. Subjectively, the Lysholm score was not different among the groups. The Lachman test indicated a trend of less negative grade in the ST men's group than that in the BTB men's group. On the patellofemoral grinding test, only women patients of both groups showed pain, with less positive crepitation in the ST group than in the BTB group. KT measurements at manual maximum showed more patients with more than 5 mm differences in the ST group than in the BTB group. The results of this study suggest that aggressive early rehabilitation after the ACL reconstruction using the semitendinosus (and gracilis) tendon has more risk of residual laxity than with the BTB.  (+info)

Views of survivors of stroke on benefits of physiotherapy. (6/3429)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the components of physiotherapy valued by survivors of a stroke. DESIGN: Qualitative study using in-depth interviews. SETTING: Two adjacent districts in North East Thames Regional Health Authority. PATIENTS: 82 survivors of stroke taken consecutively from a stroke register when they reached the tenth month after their stroke, 40 of whom agreed to be interviewed. MAIN MEASURES: Content analysis of interviews. RESULTS: Patients who agreed to the interview were significantly less likely to be disabled 12 months after stroke than those who did not. Twenty four patients had received physiotherapy, and these were more disabled than those who had not. Patients appreciated physiotherapy. It was believed to bring about functional improvement; the exercise component was valued because it was perceived to keep them active and busy and exercise programmes to follow at home were also valued for the structure they gave to each day; and therapists were considered a source of advice and information and a source of faith and hope. CONCLUSIONS: Many of the positive aspects of caring which patients described in the context of physiotherapy could be incorporated into the mainstream of rehabilitation care and training. However, health professionals need to be careful not to promote false expectations about recovery. IMPLICATIONS: The outcome of treatment is of critical importance to patients and should become a central dimension of patient satisfaction questionnaires. The impact of physiotherapy is not confined to reducing physical disability but may also affect wellbeing. The choice of outcome measures in rehabilitation research should reflect this situation.  (+info)

Effects of regular walking on cardiovascular risk factors and body composition in normoglycemic women and women with type 2 diabetes. (7/3429)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the impact of a 12-week walking program on body composition and risk factors for cardiovascular disease in women with type 2 diabetes and in normoglycemic women with first-degree diabetic relatives. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: There were 11 postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes and 20 normoglycemic women of similar age and BMI who were asked to walk 1 h per day on 5 days each week for 12 weeks. Fitness (estimated VO2max) was assessed with a 1.6-km walking test; body composition was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry; and sex hormone, metabolic, and lipid concentrations were measured in serum. RESULTS: After 12 weeks, estimated VO2max improved in both groups (P < 0.005). In the diabetic women, BMI and fat content of the upper body and android waist region decreased (P < 0.05). Concentrations of fasting blood glucose (P < 0.05) HbAlc (P < 0.05), total cholesterol (P < 0.005), and LDL cholesterol (P < 0.05) decreased, while HDL cholesterol and sex hormones were unchanged. In contrast, normoglycemic women failed to lose body fat after 12 weeks of exercise in a walking program. However, their HbAlc, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, sex hormone-binding globulin, and total testosterone concentrations decreased (P < 0.05). On pooling the data and including diabetes as a categorical grouping variable, stepwise multiple regression analysis indicated that the change in centralized body fat, but not the change in VO2max, was related to change in fasting blood glucose. CONCLUSIONS: Twelve weeks of walking increased the fitness of diabetic and normoglycemic women. Improvement of fasting blood glucose was related to the loss of centralized body fat rather than to improved fitness.  (+info)

The Diabetes Prevention Program. Design and methods for a clinical trial in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. (8/3429)

The Diabetes Prevention Program is a randomized clinical trial testing strategies to prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes in high-risk individuals with elevated fasting plasma glucose concentrations and impaired glucose tolerance. The 27 clinical centers in the U.S. are recruiting at least 3,000 participants of both sexes, approximately 50% of whom are minority patients and 20% of whom are > or = 65 years old, to be assigned at random to one of three intervention groups: an intensive lifestyle intervention focusing on a healthy diet and exercise and two masked medication treatment groups--metformin or placebo--combined with standard diet and exercise recommendations. Participants are being recruited during a 2 2/3-year period, and all will be followed for an additional 3 1/3 to 5 years after the close of recruitment to a common closing date in 2002. The primary outcome is the development of diabetes, diagnosed by fasting or post-challenge plasma glucose concentrations meeting the 1997 American Diabetes Association criteria. The 3,000 participants will provide 90% power to detect a 33% reduction in an expected diabetes incidence rate of at least 6.5% per year in the placebo group. Secondary outcomes include cardiovascular disease and its risk factors; changes in glycemia, beta-cell function, insulin sensitivity, obesity, diet, physical activity, and health-related quality of life; and occurrence of adverse events. A fourth treatment group--troglitazone combined with standard diet and exercise recommendations--was included initially but discontinued because of the liver toxicity of the drug. This randomized clinical trial will test the possibility of preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes in individuals at high risk.  (+info)

Purpose: Over 90,000 osteoarthritis (OA) related TKR surgeries take place across the UK annually, with patients undergoing regular post-surgery physiotherapy that is reliant on home-based exercise rehabilitation and driven by personalised self-management. With poor patient adherence that is difficult to ascertain, clinicians who are challenged to optimise patient outcomes are unable to determine whether improvements (or lack of) can be attributed to an exercise intervention or (non) adherence. There is a clear need for enhanced forms of objectively monitoring patient adherence to home based exercise rehabilitation, providing valuable biomechanical knowledge to clinicians to guide personalised exercise prescription. This could provide rigorous adherence measurements, optimise the rehabilitation process, reduce NHS burden and improve patient satisfaction. This research aims to determine whether the performance of 4 rehabilitation exercises, routinely prescribed to OA patients following TKR, can be ...
Background-Exercise training is an effective treatment for important atrial fibrillation (AF) comorbidities. However, a high level of endurance exercise is associated with an increased AF prevalence. We assessed the effects of aerobic interval training (AIT) on time in AF, AF symptoms, cardiovascular health, and quality of life (QoL) in AF patients. Methods and Results-Fifty-one patients with non-permanent AF were randomized to AIT (n=26) consisting of four 4-minute intervals at 85-95% of peak heart rate 3 times a week for 12 weeks or a control group (n=25) continuing their regular exercise habits. An implanted loop recorder measured time in AF continuously from 4 weeks before to 4 weeks after the intervention period. Cardiac function, peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak), lipid status, QoL, and AF symptoms were evaluated before and after the 12-week intervention period. Mean time in AF increased from 10.4% to 14.6% in the control group and was reduced from 8.1% to 4.8% in the exercise group (p=0.001 ...

OBJECTIVE To determine whether an activity specific exercise program could improve ability to perform basic mobility activities in long-term care residents with Alzheimer disease (AD). DESIGN Randomized, controlled, single-blinded clinical trial. SETTING Residents of 7 long-term care facilities. PARTICIPANTS Eighty-two long-term care residents with mild to severe AD. INTERVENTION An activity specific exercise program was compared to a walking program and to an attention control. MEASUREMENTS Ability to perform bed mobility and transfers was assessed using the subscales of the Acute Care Index of Function; functional mobility was measured using the 6-Minute Walk test. RESULTS Subjects receiving the activity specific exercise program improved in ability to perform transfers, whereas subjects in the other 2 groups declined.
While obesity is known to have many physiological consequences, the psychopathology of this condition has not featured prominently in the literature. Cross-sectional studies have indicated that obese children have increased odds of experiencing poor quality of life and mental health. However, very limited trial evidence has examined the efficacy of exercise therapy for enhancing mental health outcomes in obese children, and the Sheffield Obesity Trial (SHOT) will provide evidence of the efficacy of supervised exercise therapy in obese young people aged 11-16 years versus usual care and an attention-control intervention. SHOT is a randomised controlled trial where obese young people are randomised to receive; (1) exercise therapy, (2) attention-control intervention (involving body-conditioning exercises and games that do not involve aerobic activity), or (3) usual care. The exercise therapy and attention-control sessions will take place three times per week for eight weeks and a six-week home programme
The foundations of stroke rehabilitation exercises is the concept of neuroplasticity. The 1990s was declared The Decade of the Brain. During this period
This study seeks to 1) compare the changes in ambulatory function, vascular function, and health-related quality of life in patients limited by intermittent claudication following a home-based exercise rehabilitation program, a supervised exercise program, and a light resistance training exercise program; and 2) determine whether changes in walking efficiency, calf muscle circulation, and calf muscle oxygen are the reasons by which both home-based and supervised exercise rehabilitation improve ambulatory function.. We hypothesize that a home-based exercise program utilizing new physical activity monitoring technology that can accurately quantify exercise adherence as well as the intensity, duration, and volume of exercise sessions will result in similar changes in ambulatory function, vascular function, and health-related quality of life compared to a standard, supervised exercise program. Further, both the home-based and supervised exercise rehabilitation programs will result in greater changes ...
Physical exercise is often touted as an effective treatment for depression but, as with other therapies for depression, rates of recovery are incomplete and it is not known who benefits most from this treatment approach. In a recently published paper, a team of researchers, led by Federal University of Porto Alegres Felipe B. Schuch, scoured around 2,000 studies that explored the effects of exercise treatments for depression. After excluding articles that did not specifically explore who benefits most from exercise treatment for depression, the researchers were left with 11 articles. Several variables were reported to predict benefit from treatment including global functioning and social support. Few variables were explored in multiple or methodologically rigorous studies but levels of inflammation and bran-derived neurotrophic factor (BNDF) were reported to predict treatment response.. Depression has been associated with inflammation, along with a host of other diseases. Physical exercise has ...
A sprained ankle is a tear to the ligaments of the ankle joint. Treatment involves applying ice and compress followed by rehabilitation exercises.
Eighteen RCTs (2,580 participants) were included in the review. Fifteen other studies were excluded because of a PEDro quality score of less than 6. The included studies scored from 6 to 8 points. All the included studies reported randomisation. Allocation concealment was reported in 11 studies. Assessors were blinded in 15 studies. Thirteen studies reported drop-outs of less than 15%. Intention-to-treat analyses were used in 13 studies. Follow-up periods ranged from five weeks to 36 months.. Physical exercise therapy compared to no exercise: There were statistically significant benefits with physical exercise therapy compared to no exercise in mobility based on final values (SMD 0.18, 95% CI 0.05 to 0.30, Ι²=9%; six RCTs, 956 participants) and change scores (SMD 0.82, 95% CI 0.54 to 1.10; one RCT, 215 participants) and physical functioning based on final values (SMD 0.27, 95% CI 0.08 to 0.46; one RCT, 424 participants) and change values (SMD 2.93, 95% CI 2.50 to 3.36; two RCTs, 287 ...
The large increase in V̇o2peak in AIT may be explained in part by lower baseline values and a higher exercise intensity than in previous studies (eg, Dubach et al18 and Gielen et al19), and one could speculate whether we underestimated V̇o2peak at before exercise but not afterward. However, this appears unlikely, because only 2 patients did not manage to satisfy the criteria defined for reaching true maximal oxygen uptake at both time points. Furthermore, high blood lactate concentrations and high respiratory exchange ratios suggest that the patients exercised at maximum effort at both occasions.. Two previous studies20,21 involving patients with coronary artery disease have employed aerobic interval exercise with elements of the same high intensity as in the present study, both with a substantial increase of V̇o2peak. These studies showed that 12 months of exercise at 50% to 95% of V̇o2peak 3 to 5 times per week induced an improvement in V̇o2peak of 37% to 42%. A longer training period, a ...

A patient strikes a sensor in a manner to produce an impact load at an impact rate along the axis of a bone experiencing the bone disorder, and that impact load and impact rate are measured and compared to desired impact load and impact rate values to determine a success indicator of how close the patient came to the desired impact load and impact rate values in striking the sensor. The success indicator is provided to the patient as feedback for the active exercise treatment and is recorded.
# 161 Scoliosis Classification and Specific Exercises Scoliosis affects up to 5% of the population. That means 5 out of every 100 patients a therapist treats will have scoliosis. In addition, more patients with scoliosis will complain of back pain than those without scoliosis. It can be theorized that an even higher population of patients with scoliosis will present to a therapist for back pain. Few therapists have received training to recognize and classify scoliosis both clinically or with imaging and do not incorporate a scoliosis specific treatment plan into their plan of care. This workshop will teach therapists how to clinically classify scoliosis and incorporate scoliosis specific exercises into a plan of care. Information is applicable to all ages of children and adults.Participants will take home a skill set they can start using the next Monday they return to clinic as well as a solid base to further their exploration of a scoliosis specific exercises.

Clinical trials have resulted in mixed results.[1][2][3] Surveys of patients conducted by patient charities have universally found Graded Exercise Therapy to be harmful, although a minority of patients found it helped them or simply ineffective.[4][5] A number of severely ill patients have reported that starting Graded Exercise Therapy will moderate symptoms cause a severe escalation of symptoms, leaving them permanently worse. Two highly influential peer-reviewed articles often used to support the use of Graded Exercise Therapy, the Cochrane review and the PACE trial, have had widescale calls for retraction based on criticism of the scientific method and standards used.[3]. Robin Brown, a British doctor with ME/CFS has created petition that many thousands have signed calling for GET and related CBT to be removed from the UK treatment guidelines immediately.[6]. ...
Fasting plasma insulin (P = 0.01), HOMA-IR (homeostasis model assessment, insulin resistance) (P = 0.002), waist circumference (P = 0.003), waist-to-hip ratio (P = 0.002), fat percent (P = 0.04), and supine diastolic blood pressure (P = 0.03) decreased during the program, while weight and body mass index remained unchanged. VO2 peak and maximal work load (W/kg) improved by 5% (P = 0.01 and P = 0.02, respectively) during the exercise program. The results of the Sit-Up test, Back extensor test, and Full Squatting test improved as well (P = 0.01, P = 0.002, and P = 0.0004, respectively). ...
Context: Many different rehabilitation exercises have been recommended in the literature to target the gluteus medius (GMed) muscle based mainly on single-electrode, surface electromyography (EMG) measures. With the GMed consisting of 3 structurally and functionally independent segments, there is uncertainty on whether these exercises will target the individual segments effectively. Objective: To measure individual GMed segmental activity during 6 common, lower-limb rehabilitation exercises in healthy young adults, and determine if there are significant differences between the exercises for each segment. Method: With fine-wire EMG electrodes inserted into the anterior, middle, and posterior segments of the GMed muscle, 10 healthy young adults performed 6 common, lower-limb rehabilitation exercises. Main Outcome Measures: Recorded EMG activity was normalized, then reported and compared with median activity for each of the GMed segments across the 6 exercises. Results: For the anterior GMed ...

BACKGROUND: Increased physical activity and dietary protein intake are promising interventions to prevent or treat the age-related decline in physical performance in older adults. There are well-controlled exercise as well as dietary intervention studies that show beneficial effects on physical performance in older adults. In practice, however, weekly group based exercise or nutritional programs may not be as effective. To optimise these exercise programs for community dwelling older adults, a digitally supported and personalised home-based exercise training program has been designed aiming to improve physical performance in older adults. In addition, a protein intervention in combination with the training program may further improve physical performance in older adults. METHODS: The VITAMIN study will be a cluster randomised controlled trial with three parallel arms. In total, 240 community dwelling older adults (≥ 55 years) participating in weekly group exercise are randomly allocated into: ...

OA is a leading cause of disability worldwide and associated with pain, impaired mobility and quality of life.1 Physical activity, including therapeutic exercise, patient education and weight control are recommended in key OA treatment guidelines.2 Nevertheless, the belief that therapeutic exercise may harm knee joint cartilage remains common among people with knee OA, and health professionals treating the condition, creating a prevailing barrier to implementing evidence-based care.3-5 The current discord between evidence and persistent beliefs highlights the need for better education. Providing a clear and engaging summary of the evidence to communicate the positive impact of therapeutic exercise and physical activity on the knee joint is crucial to encourage greater acceptance of, and participation in exercise and physical activity to … ...
The Rehabilitation Exercise for Health after Breast Cancer trial is the first study to evaluate the physiological effects of exercise training on fasting insulin, glucose, insulin resistance, IGF, and IGFBP in cancer survivors. We found that exercise training had no significant physiological effects on fasting insulin, glucose, insulin resistance, IGF-II, and IGFBP-1 in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors. However, exercise training did have significant physiological effects on IGF-I, IGFBP-3, and IGF-I:IGFBP-3 molar ratio.. The strengths and limitations of our data merit consideration. Strengths include the randomized controlled trial design, standardized blood collection protocols, high exercise adherence rate, and minimal loss to follow-up. Limitations include the 14% recruitment rate, small sample size, short exercise intervention with no long-term follow-up, and use of a single hormone measurement to classify participants.. Key findings of our trial were that exercise training had no ...
Exercise Therapy Exercise therapy refers to the implementation of exercise with a specific goal in mind. An exercise therapy program may be supervised or unsupervised. Supervised exercise is usually part of a physical rehabilitative program. Patients may be provided with simple exercises, which they can perform at home. Home exercises are often provided to help improve flexibility and restore the strength required to stabilize a joint region. Some exercises are provided to help reduce the risk for injury or re-injury. A spinal stabilization exercise program is often used to strengthen muscles around the spine to reduce excessive or abnormal joint and spinal region movement patterns. Physical Therapy Physical therapy often includes the application of modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat, cold and iontophoresis in an attempt to reduce pain and inflammation. In some cases a combination of these approaches may be used. Manual approaches such as joint mobilization or joint ...

Physical activity reduces the risk for disease, improves overall health, and quality of life. Group exercise classes are large contributors for meeting physical activity recommendations. Improving long-term adherence to group exercise classes is essential in order to receive health and fitness benefits. Many contributing factors affect adherence rates including the role of the instructor. The instructor has great influence over the decision to return to a group exercise class. It is important to find out what qualities and characteristics are preferred among those who take classes to increase long-term adherence. Another important factor relating to adherence is body type, appearance and attractiveness of the instructor. These factors have been influential in other areas including performance enhancement consulting, counseling, teacher ratings, and willingness to accept health advice. However, little research has been done to determine if body type, appearance and attractiveness influence adherence to

ABSTRACT Objective: Preoperative functional evaluation is central to optimizing the identification of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who are candidates for surgery. The minute ventilation/carbon dioxide output (VE/VCO2) slope has proven to be a predictor of surgical complications and mortality. Pulmonary rehabilitation programs (PRPs) could influence short-term outcomes in patien...
Estimation of GFR (eGFR) using formulae based on serum creatinine concentrations are commonly used to assess kidney function. Physical exercise can increase creatinine turnover and lean mass; therefore, this method may not be suitable for use in exercising individuals. Cystatin-C based eGFR formulae may be a more accurate measure of kidney function when examining the impact of exercise on kidney function. The aim of this study was to assess the agreement of four creatinine and cystatin-C based estimates of GFR before and after a 12-month exercise intervention. One hundred forty-two participants with stage 3-4 chronic kidney disease (CKD) (eGFR 25-60 mL/min/1.73 m2) were included. Subjects were randomised to either a Control group (standard nephrological care [n = 68]) or a Lifestyle Intervention group (12 months of primarily aerobic based exercise training [n = 74]). Four eGFR formulae were compared at baseline and after 12 months: 1) MDRDcr, 2) CKD-EPIcr, 3) CKD-EPIcys and 4) CKD-EPIcr-cys. Control

Physical therapy is a known benefit in treating many orthopedic and neurologic conditions. In humans, it is considered a mandatory and routine intervention before, after, or in lieu of surgery once a diagnosis is made.. Rehabilitation exercises improve joint mobility, and post-operative patients have an earlier return to function when rehabilitation is incorporated into their treatment regimen. Rehabilitation exercises also may delay the progression of non-surgical diseases and maintain quality of life for affected patients.. With goals centered around service, teaching, and research, the physical rehabilitation services team takes a translational approach to discovering and leveraging the most effective rehabilitation techniques for our patients.. ...

I have read the paper by McDowell et al with great interest. While the trial showed no significant improvement in the main outcome measure it is crucial to understand why. The intervention group had 30 patients who were recruited from 6 hospitals over a period of 3 years or in other words hospitals recruited 1-2 patients per year who had personalised (lonely) exercise sessions. Outcomes from rehabilitation of COPD are thought to be driven by a multi-disciplinary approach [1] and peer-support from fellow patients [2]. The latter is likely to improve resilience [3] and impact on overall self-reported quality of life ...

Participants (n = 16) were randomly allocated to either a control PAD-IC group (CPAD-IC, n = 6) which received standard medical therapy, or a treatment PAD-IC group (TPAD-IC; n = 10) which took part in a supervised exercise program. During a graded treadmill test,
Subacromial pain is the most common problem among patients with shoulder complaints seeking primary care. The recommended treatment for these patients is primarily non-surgical with a focus on exercise treatment. If this treatment fails arthroscopic subacromial decompression (ASD) followed by exercise treatment is recommended. Surgical treatment with ASD has increased substantially in Sweden in recent years even though studies comparing exercise treatment with surgery report equally positive results. Still, there is a need of evidence based preand postoperative exercise treatments, standardised and described in detail, to guide treatment of these patients in clinical practice.. The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate the efficacy of pre- and postoperative exercise strategies on shoulder function and how the preoperative strategy affects the need for surgery in patients with long-standing subacromial pain.. This thesis comprises four papers which are based on two randomised controlled ...
BACKGROUND: Adults in intensive care units (ICUs) often suffer from a lack of sleep or frequent sleep disruptions. Non-pharmacological interventions can improve the duration and quality of sleep and decrease the risk of sleep disturbance, delirium, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and the length of stay in the ICU. However, there is no clear evidence of the effectiveness and harms of different non-pharmacological interventions for sleep promotion in adults admitted to the ICU. OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy of non-pharmacological interventions for sleep promotion in critically ill adults in the ICU.To establish whether non-pharmacological interventions are safe and clinically effective in improving sleep quality and reducing length of ICU stay in critically ill adults.To establish whether non-pharmacological interventions are cost effective. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL, 2014, Issue 6), MEDLINE (OVID, 1950 to June 2014), EMBASE ...

Background: Anxiety and depression are the most common complications after coronary artery bypass surgery. Although patients may gain some physical and psychological benefit from cardiac rehabilitation after cardiac surgery, but some individuals and social aspects may change the cardiac rehabilitation procedure. Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of short-term cardiac rehabilitation on anxiety and depression in patients after coronary artery bypass surgery. Methods: In this quasi-experimental pretest - post test design study, all patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery in Razavi hospital in Mashhad (1392) were participated and for sampling, 70 patients allocated into experimental and control groups by non-randomly convenient method. Subjects in an experimental group received 4-week (10 sessions) cardiac rehabilitation program, while control group received only routine post discharge care. Data was collected using demographic form, social support questionnaire and the

Clinical guidelines recommend research on sub-groups of patients with low back pain (LBP) but, to date, only few studies have been published. One sub-group of LBP is movement control impairment (MCI) and clinical tests to identify this sub-group have been developed. Also, exercises appear to be beneficial for the management of chronic LBP (CLBP), but very little is known about the management of sub-acute LBP. A randomized controlled trial (RCT) was conducted to compare the effects of general exercise versus specific movement control exercise (SMCE) on disability and function in patients with MCI within the recurrent sub-acute LBP group. Participants having a MCI attended five treatment sessions of either specific or general exercises. In both groups a short application of manual therapy was applied. The primary outcome was disability, assessed by the Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ). The measurements were taken at baseline, immediately after the three months intervention and at twelve-month
Introduction. Circuit Training Circuit training is a method of training. A circuit usually has 8 to 15 stations, where at each station a different exercise is carried out for a certain amount of time. Circuit training can improve muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, aerobic fitness, muscular strength, speed and agility. Specificity My circuit-training program is for running and it is based over a six-week period. The 10 stations are specifically suited to what is needed to run. My circuit is aimed to improve the following over a six-week period: muscular endurance, muscular strength, speed, agility, cardiovascular endurance, these are all needed for a runner. For example: � Muscular Endurance - To keep the muscles contracting for the full length of the race without getting out of breathe too easily. � Muscular Strength - the force your muscles exert. When a runner gets too tired, we always rely on our arms to keep us going as it acts as our pace setter. � Speed -This is maybe not ...
Discussion. This preliminary RCT investigated the routine feasibility and the clinical effects of the addition of a video-game assisted program to a standard exercise training program in patients with stable COPD in a very simple organizational context with limited available facilities. We found that the addition of this program using a Wii Fit balance board was feasible but in the given conditions did not add any benefits to and was more expensive than a standard exercise program.. Mazzoleni et al.18 showed, in a routine setting, significantly greater improvement in 6MWD and TDI in patients also undergoing a shorter (seven days) video-game assisted program compared with patients undergoing just a standard pulmonary rehabilitation program, without any other substantial additional benefit. Albores et al.25 assessed the effects of virtual game technology on 20 patients with COPD undergoing a home-based exercise program. That uncontrolled study25 concluded that 12 weeks of Wii exercise led to ...
Abstract: Thirty-two women students at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro participated in a study of the effect of two different exercise programs, one isometric and one stretching, on selected girth and skinfold thickness measurements. The subjects were randomly divided into two groups, both of which exercised daily for a four weeks period. All subjects were measured at the beginning and end of the study. Girth measurements were taken of the hips, waist, and right upper-arm. Skinfold thicknesses measured were triceps and subscapular. Using Fishers t test of significant difference between initial and final scores, the isometric exercise group showed a reduction of hip girth, upper arm girth and upper arm skinfold measurements significant at the five per cent level of confidence or better. There was no statistically significant difference in initial and final measurements of the waist girth and subscapular skinfold thickness.. The effect of two different exercise programs on ...
Aerobic Exercise Training May Not Offset the Pro-inflammatory Effects of a High Fat Feeding. Katie C. Carpenter, Lisa Esposito, Kelley A. Strohacker, Richard J. Simpson, Brian K. McFarlin. University of Houston, Houston, TX Increased adiposity is associated with an increase in systemic inflammation, which is involved in the pathophysiology of various disease states. A current hypothesis in our laboratory suggests that the toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) pathway may link physical activity and systemic inflammation. PURPOSE: The primary purpose was to determine if 6-weeks of aerobic exercise training (5 days per week, 1 hour per day. 21-22m/min) would limit the increase in systemic inflammation resulting from high-fat (60% of calories from fat) feeding. A secondary purpose was to determine if changes in cell-surface TLR4 expression would account for observed differences in inflammatory status between mice which exercise and those that remain sedentary. METHODS: 36 CD-1 male mice were randomly assigned to one

The following are the most common benefits of regular physical exercise:. Decrease Death Rate. As we all know, regular physical exercise keeps a person healthier than ever. The practice has healing power and can fight almost every problem in your body. It is therefore evident enough that a person will live longer if he has practically no illness. As per German Research Reports, doing regular exercise brings down the death rate of nearly 35%, and people can live up to 7 plus years. Is it not amazing?. Better Skin. You may have heard many people telling you that practicing yoga can make you look a lot younger than your actual age. The logical part of the whole saying is that any exercise helps you to sweat. Now while you are sweating, a lot of microbes and bacteria washes away from your skin, making it healthier. Also, physical activities help in improving blood circulation, making your skin glow more. Helps in Maintaining Body Postures and Balance. Exercising or working out helps to improve body ...
The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of a specifically tailored exercise plan to treat MCI versus a traditional general exercise plan for NSLBP.. 201 patients with lower back pain were recruited, and were then screened using a number of criteria including age and comorbidities, with 48 being excluded before baseline assessment. Following baseline assessment, a further 47 patients were excluded for various reasons.. The remaining 106 patients were then randomly allocated to either a general exercise (GE) group, which aimed to improve muscle strength of all relevant muscle groups in the lumbar and pelvic region, or a MCI specific exercise group which specifically addressed pain-provoking postures and control on impaired movements. The patients were allocated using block randomisation.. The primary outcome measure used was the Patient Specific Functional Scale (PSFS), and the secondary outcomes were pain, as measured by the graded chronic pain scale (GCPS), and disability, ...
Objective Previous studies have shown that estrogen deficiency, arising in postmenopause, promotes endothelial dysfunction. This study evaluated the effects of aerobic exercise training on endothelial dependent vasodilation of aorta in ovariectomized rats, specifically investigating the role of nitric oxide (NO) and reactive oxygen species (ROS). Methods Female Wistar rats ovariectomized (OVX - n=20) or with intact ovary (SHAM - n=20) remained sedentary (OVX and SHAM) or performed aerobic exercise training on a treadmill 5 times a week for a period of 8 weeks (OVX-TRA and SHAM-TRA). In the thoracic aorta the endothelium-dependent and -independent vasodilation was assessed by acetylcholine (ACh) and sodium nitroprusside (SNP), respectively. Certain aortic rings were incubated with L-NAME to assess the NO modulation on the ACh-induced vasodilation. The fluorescence to dihydroethidium in aortic slices and plasma nitrite/nitrate concentrations were measured to evaluate ROS and NO bioavailability,
This page contains the article Manual Therapy and Exercise Therapy in Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized, Controlled Trial With 1-Year Follow-Up http://www.chiro.org/Low_Back_Pain/Manual_Therapy_vs_Exercise_Therapy.shtml
Sixty-one randomized controlled trials (6390 participants) met inclusion criteria: acute (11), subacute (6) and chronic (43) low-back pain (1 unclear). Evidence was found of effectiveness in chronic populations relative to comparisons at all follow-up periods; pooled mean improvement was 7.3 points (95% CI, 3.7 to 10.9) for pain (out of 100), 2.5 points (1.0 to 3.9) for function (out of 100) at earliest follow-up. In studies investigating patients (i.e. presenting to healthcare providers) mean improvement was 13.3 points (5.5 to 21.1) for pain, 6.9 (2.2 to 11.7) for function, representing significantly greater improvement over studies where participants included those recruited from a general population (e.g. with advertisements). There is some evidence of effectiveness of graded-activity exercise program in subacute low-back pain in occupational settings, though the evidence for other types of exercise therapy in other populations is inconsistent. There was evidence of equal effectiveness ...

Supervised exercise is usually part of a physical rehabilitative program. Patients may be provided with simple exercises, which they can perform at home. Home exercises are often provided to help improve flexibility and restore the strength required to stabilize a joint region. Some exercises are provided to help reduce the risk for injury or re-injury. A spinal stabilization exercise program is often used to strengthen muscles around the spine to reduce excessive or abnormal joint and spinal region movement patterns. Physical Therapy Physical therapy often includes the application of modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat, cold and iontophoresis in an attempt to reduce pain and inflammation. In some cases a combination of these approaches may be used. Manual approaches such as joint mobilization or joint ...

By DeTurk, William E Scott, Lisa Benz ABSTRACT Purpose: Physical therapists have engaged in cardiac rehabilitation (CR) and pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) for decades, but the extent of their current involvement in this practice area is unclear. This study surveyed directors of CR and PR programs on a statewide level to ascertain what type of provider is writing the prescription, which methods of exercise formulation are used, which outcome measures are used and their congruency with established guidelines. Methods: A convenience sample of outpatient CR and PR directors (n=31) representing 38 CR and/or PR programs located in New York completed a survey in spring 2005 (29 CR and 9 PR). Results: Results showed that only 2 physical therapists were responsible for writing exercise prescriptions in CR and PR programs. Most program directors were registered nurses (53%), who also wrote the majority of CR exercise prescriptions. Exercise intensity was most frequently determined using formulae and data ...
Exercise regimens are very essential in a fitness program. Pre-determining your exercise regimen will give you a good start with your workout. But there are things that you must do first before you finally sign yourself up in any kind of fitness program. These things will help you figure out if youre really up to it.. In setting up an exercise regimen, youll have to consider certain aspects of its design such as safeties, efficiency and effectiveness. The first thing you have to do is determine if youre fit or not. Your fitness level will determine what kind of fitness program is more appropriate for you. The routine of your workouts should be focusing not only to your strengths but also to your weaknesses.. If you have been accustomed to just sitting around all day or your body is not used to doing any kind of exercise at all doesnt mean your too weak. Being sedentary doesnt automatically mean youre not healthy enough to have one of those exercise regimens; you may need to consult a ...
The effects of a novel high intensity exercise intervention on established markers of cardiovascular disease and health in Scottish adolescent youth
The present study examined the effect of an acute bout of aerobic exercise on sustained attention and discrimination ability in children with LD. With the intensity of exercise confirmed via HR and RPE monitoring, the results demonstrated that a single session of aerobic exercise led to shortened reaction times and improved accuracy rates on the DUAF sustained attention test and the determination test, even as the LD and TD control groups, which did not undergo the exercise session, showed no such improvements. The results provided strong evidence of acute exercise on childrens performance in tasks requiring sustained attention or discriminatory ability, with a high ES (25% of variance explained; Cohen, 1988, p. 287). Also, compared with the TD children who participated in the exercise treatment, the children with LD participating in acute exercise demonstrated greater positive impact in the reaction times and accuracy rates. Our findings suggest that higher accuracy rate and fast reaction time ...

Aging is associated with a loss of brain function and conditions such as dementia and Alzheimers disease. It is likely that decreased brain metabolism is contributing to the progression of age related degenerative diseases. Aerobic exercise training can increase brain volumes and is associated with decreased risk for degenerative brain conditions. However, little is know about the changes that occur to brain metabolism with aerobic training and aging.. ...
Only half of GPs are able to refer patients with depression to exercise schemes five years after guidance recommended exercise as a treatment in mild to moderate cases. A new report from the Mental Health Foundation says a number of factors are preventing patients getting exercise on prescription.. The report, Moving on up says clinical guidelines published in 2004 supported the use of exercise in some cases but research has shown just 49 per cent of GPs report that they have access to an exercise referral scheme. The Foundation says barriers to patients getting the treatment include funding constraints within local government and primary care trusts. There is also a lack of awareness of exercise schemes amongst GPs and other healthcare professionals. The charity says these barriers have to be overcome.. Its report finds that more than 8 out of ten GPs who do have access to an exercise referral scheme use it as a treatment for their patients. People with depression who have been referred to ...
All participants will receive a personalised programme of exercise during the pulmonary rehabilitation session and a home-based programme designed according to their individual needs. We expect that all patients will experience improvement in exercise capacity and breathlessness regardless of the group they belong to. If the intervention (HIIT) is successful, the active group is likely to experience additional benefits. All patients will benefit from the educational sessions that are part of the pulmonary rehabilitation programme. Another benefit for patients is that they will be able to express their views about their programme and care and will be encouraged to set goals to improve their quality of life. Again, this benefit is independent of the group the patients will belong to. There are no major anticipated risks from the programme and all assessments are non-invasive. Both groups, active and control, will receive the standard treatment (pulmonary rehabilitation). Both types of training ...
Methods. The study was designed as a randomized controlled trial and was carried out over a period of 16 weeks from the beginning of March to the end of June 2015 at a primary care center. The study population were women from Granada (Spain) who were not engaged in regular physical exercise, but otherwise healthy and able to exercise, aged between about 45 to 60 years coinciding with the perimenopausal period. They were randomly assigned to either an exercise intervention group (N = 74) or to control group (N = 76). Both groups received four conferences in which general advice about the positive effects of a physical exercise program and of the Mediterranean diet were given. The exercise intervention was performed in four groups. The groups trained 3 days/week (60minutes/session) for a 16-week period at the primary care centre. Each exercise included a 10-minute warm-up period with walks and mobility exercises, followed by 40-minute of a main part which varied across week days. Sessions finished ...
One of the main barriers for getting to the gym is time. Sometimes, it can feel like you need 2 hours to fit in a really effective workout and feel accomplished. I used to feel the same way until I switched my major to Kinesiology and discovered circuit training. Circuit training is a set of 10-15 different exercises that utilize aerobic or resistance training or a combination of the two. A moderate intensity should be selected (40-60% 1RM for weight training or 40-60% VO2max or a 12-13 out of 20 on a 6-20 scale). Each exercise should only last 15 repetitions or 30 seconds. Typically you will rest for the same amount of time between sets as you do during your set (i.e. workout for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds). Your relief time could also include active recovery, such as walking, jogging, or other calisthenic activities. You would then continuously repeat this cycle for 2-4 sets. When you are done, you might even feel as if you got a 2-3 hour work out in in 30 minutes. This is good yes?? ...
Methods Forty patients with chronic low back pain randomly divided into two groups of 20 patients. 20 patients in the first group received low-energy laser + exercise treatment, other group received low-energy laser treatment alone. The parameters such as pain and muscle strength were assessed in all patients pretreatment and posttreatment. Pain measurement was done using the visual anologue scale. Muscle strength measurement (m. rectus abdominus, oblicus, hip abductors, hip adductors, extensors and internal rotators, knee flexors and extansors, foot flexors and extansors, and dorsal extansors) was done using the manual muscle strength testing. ...

Balance Exercises Are Very Beneficial Balance exercises are primarily thought to help reduce the frequency and risk of falling for the older population. See h(...)
The majority of current care for falls focuses on helping people who have already fallen instead of preventing them from falling. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using a mobile phone/tablet app to train balance among elderly participants and their acceptance, with the view to improving and maintaining good balance to prevent future falls. The findings demonstrate the feasibility of using a phone application to deliver an exercise programme for balance training. This is in line with previous studies reporting feasibility of delivering home-based exercise programme through smartphone apps for promoting physical activity in older adults.14 15 20 Our participants were positive about the app and engaged well with the given exercise programme as shown by the high adherence recorded. Adherence is a major barrier to the effectiveness of prescribed exercise regimes29 and the ability to supersede this with the use of an app is powerful. A review indicated that adherence to ...

Optimum recovery from hip fracture has been linked to the provision of effective rehabilitation, but levels of adherence vary among older patients. In this feasibility study a novel personalized DVD was designed for four participants, which delivered a 5 week tailored home exercise program (HEP), with the participant being videoed completing their exercises. Treatment fidelity of the DVD HEP was evaluated, including participants perceptions of and response to the DVD-HEP, which was explored using diaries and interviews and analyzed thematically. Secondary outcome measures including exercise adherence and self-efficacy for exercise were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Levels of adherence to the HEP were 1.2-3.5 times more than the minimum prescribed dose and participants demonstrated higher levels of self-efficacy for exercise. Adherence was found to be enhanced by physical improvement, positive self-reflection about engagement in the DVD-HEP, the format of the DVD, and increased ...
Best practice management of lung transplantation recipients includes both pre- and post-transplantation rehabilitation programs. However, the impact of a specific exercise intervention on recovery and post-transplant outcomes has not been rigorously studied. This randomized controlled trial studied the impact of a 3-month supervised exercise training program in lung transplant recipients with an uncomplicated post-transplant course. The program was initiated immediately following discharge from hospital. Treatment group patients exercised three times weekly for three months post-discharge. The primary endpoint was daily walking time, with other markers of daily physical activity, fitness, quality of life, self-perceived health status, and incidence of comorbidities studied as secondary endpoints. Although a high percentage of eligible patients refused to participate (almost 40%), of the randomized patients, the exercise intervention group had improved functional status and reduced cardiovascular ...
3. Interval Training. Doing any exercise more intensely will bring quicker and more impactful results. Its no different with exercises to lose thigh fat. You can take any cardio exercise and ramp it up with interval training. Rather than exercising at moderate intensity throughout the session, youll vary the intensity between high and low every few minutes. This causes your heart rate to peak and metabolic rate to increase more than with slow, sustained exercise levels.. 4. Specific Exercises To Lose Thigh Fat. There are specific exercises that tone up your thigh muscles and are designed to help you shed those extra pounds of fat that have piled up around them. These exercises are not meant to burn calories. Instead, they strengthen the thigh muscles and make them lean and firmer. Most of these are isometric exercises that keep the muscle length constant but place a stress on them to increase strength.. a. Side thigh lifts are where you lie on your side and lift your leg up, then bring it ...

Findings on burnout and depression in athletes highlight their potential severity. Although both constructs are discussed in similar, stress-based concepts, it is unclear how they relate to each other. To address this issue, we conducted a crosssectional multiple linear regression analysis (MLR; N = 194) and a longitudinal analysis of a three-wave cross-lagged panel (CLP; n = 92) in German junior elite athletes. MLR showed that depression and burnout were both associated with chronic stress. Stress was a significant better predictor for both burnout and depression than each was for the other. CLP analysis on the constructs of burnout and depression revealed support for cross-paths in both directions. Thus, burnout and depression might cause each other to some degree, with no distinct direction of this link. However, as both syndromes do not fully explain each other, interchanging both terms and syndromes should be avoided. Preferably, future research might consider the transfer of knowledge ...

While coaches are considered at risk of experiencing burnout, there is an absence of intervention studies addressing this syndrome. The purpose of this qualitative study was to conduct a self-regulation intervention with five Canadian developmental (n = 2) and elite (n = 3) sport coaches (three men, two women) experiencing moderate to high levels of burnout and examine the perceived impact of this intervention on their self-regulation capacity and experiences of burnout and well-being. The content analysis of the coaches outtake interviews and five bi-weekly journals revealed that all five of them learned to self-regulate more effectively by developing various competencies (e.g., strategic planning for their well-being, self-monitoring) and strategies (e.g., task delegation, facilitative self-talk).

Recreational athletes comprise the most prevalent population using illegal Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS). Despite regulatory efforts, substances are widely accessible, and most users report the experience of harmful side effects. It remains unclear why few users seek professional medical help. The aim of this study was to determine AAS users experience of side effects and help-seeking beliefs using an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis of six interviews. Participants were from the United Kingdom (n = 5) and United States (n = 1), had all experienced side effects, with some reporting prolonged use of AAS (,10 years) and self-manufacturing the drugs from raw ingredients. Results showed that AAS users discredit medical professionals competencies, and practice cognitive dissonance by avoiding challenging situations. A microculture for information-sharing has developed among AAS users who initially self-treat to counteract side effects, leaving them vulnerable to further harm. To ...
