Fatigue in Parkinson's disease: A review
What is known about fatigue in Parkinson's disease is reviewed, putting it into the context of fatigue in other disorders, and a program for developing better understanding and therapy is outlined.
Effects of fatigue on physical activity and function in patients with Parkinson’s disease
PD patients with more severe fatigue are more sedentary and have poorer functional capacity and physical function compared with patients with less fatigue, and the Up and Go Test, Leisure Activity Score, CL use, and diastolic blood pressure were the best predictor variables of fatigue.
Updating ACSM's Recommendations for Exercise Preparticipation Health Screening.
The new ACSM exercise preparticipation health screening recommendations reduce possible unnecessary barriers to adopting and maintaining a regular exercise program, a lifestyle of habitual physical activity, or both, and thereby emphasize the important public health message that regular physical activity is important for all individuals.
Perceived environments as physical activity correlates and moderators of intervention in five studies.
Relationships between perceived environments and physical activity may differ depending upon population groups and activity domains and merit investigation by using stronger prospective designs.
Respiratory Muscle Strength in the Physically Active Elderly
It is hypothesized that regular exercise in the elderly would attenuate this age-related decline in respiratory muscle strength, and that recruitment of the diaphragm and abdominal muscles during nonrespiratory activities may be the source of this training effect.
Relationship between physical activity and general mental health.
A hyperbolic dose-response relationship between physical activity and general mental health is established, with an optimal range of 2.5 to 7.5h of physical activity per week being established.
