Objective: The objective of the study was to investigate the effects of a functional exercise program on muscle strength and mobility in a group of patients with sporadic inclusion body myositis (IBM). Methods and Materials: Seven patients with sporadic IBM were tested for muscle strength and functional capacities before and after a 16-week, patient-specific, home-based exercise program involving mild, daily, functional exercises. Results: Significant improvements in isometric strength were… 
Improvement in Aerobic Capacity After an Exercise Program in Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis
TLDR
An aerobic exercise program can be safely tolerated by patients with sporadic IBM and can improve aerobic capacity and muscle strength when combined with resistance training, indicating that aerobic and functional muscle strengthening exercise should be considered in the management of patients with IBM.
Community exercise is feasible for neuromuscular diseases and can improve aerobic capacity
TLDR
This study provides Class II evidence that for patients with CMT type 1A and IBM, an aerobic training program increases aerobic capacity.
Blood-flow restricted resistance training in patients with sporadic inclusion body myositis: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The training protocol had a preventive effect on the disease-related decline in leg muscle strength, which may aid the long-term preservation of physical function and postpone the need for healthcare assistance.
Outpatient Physical Therapy Evaluation and Treatment of a Patient Diagnosed with Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis: A Case Study
TLDR
Physical therapy may have helped improve balance as well as subjective reports from the patient of increased feeling of confidence while navigating stairs, and many objective outcome measures could not be reassessed.
Safety and efficacy of exercise training in patients with an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy--a systematic review.
TLDR
It appears that exercise training is safe and effective in adult patients with active as well as inactive stable IIMs, however, more studies with a well-controlled design are needed.
Role of Exercise in the Management of Myositis
TLDR
All small studies on exercise in inclusion body myositis (IBM) conclude that exercise is safe as to disease activity and inflammation; however, evidence on the response of exercise on muscle strength and physical capacity is somewhat diverging.
Exercise in Myositis
TLDR
It is recommended to initiate exercise on a low intensity under supervision of a physical therapist with regular follow-up and progression of intensity over time to be considered as medicine.
The relevance of applying exercise training principles when designing therapeutic interventions for patients with inflammatory myopathies: a systematic review
TLDR
Evaluating exercise interventions in studies with IM patients in relation to the application of principles of exercise training, the reporting of FITT components, the adherence of participants to the intervention, and the methodological quality of the included studies found them to be satisfactory.
Exercise as a therapeutic modality in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies
TLDR
Accumulated evidence supports safety and efficacy of exercise in polymyositis and dermatomyositis, although data are more inconclusive for efficacy in patients with IBM, and there is a need for larger studies to further ensure efficacy in IBM and juvenile dermatomyotis.
[Exercises in patients with myositis--active treatment intervention?].
TLDR
It is now known that active exercise and exercise with resistance improve strength and endurance of muscles, aerobic capacity and overall functional ability.

Safety of a home exercise programme in patients with polymyositis and dermatomyositis: a pilot study.
TLDR
The results indicate that this home exercise programme can be safely employed in patients with stable, inactive polymyositis and dermatomyositis, with beneficial effects on muscle function.
Sporadic inclusion body myositis: pilot study on the effects of a home exercise program on muscle function, histopathology and inflammatory reaction.
TLDR
The home exercise program was considered as not harmful to the muscles regarding muscle inflammation and function and may prevent loss of muscle strength due to disease and/or inactivity.
A pilot randomised controlled trial of a home-based exercise programme aimed at improving endurance and function in adults with neuromuscular disorders
TLDR
A home-based approach aimed at improving endurance in adults with NMDs is feasible and further investigation on a larger sample is warranted.
Improvement of physical fitness and muscle strength in polymyositis/dermatomyositis patients by a training programme.
TLDR
No rise in inflammatory activity, but significant improvement in muscle strength, oxygen uptake and well-being, were found in patients with inflammatory myopathy as a result of physical training.
Safety and efficacy of strength training in patients with sporadic inclusion body myositis
TLDR
It is concluded that a supervised progressive resistance training program in IBM patients can lead to gains in dynamic strength of the least weak muscles without causing muscle fatigue and muscle injury or serological, histological, and immunological abnormalities.
The role of exercise in the rehabilitation of idiopathic inflammatory myopathies
TLDR
Data indicate that active exercise, adapted to disease activity and disability should be included in the rehabilitation of patients in all stages of IIM, and the newly developed and validated outcome measures for patients with polymyositis and dermatomyositis help assess the effects of interventions on diseaseactivity and disability.
A comparative study of organized class-based exercise programs versus individual home-based exercise programs for elderly patients following hip surgery
TLDR
There appears to be more positive health outcomes presented by the participants in the supervised/class- based group when compared to the non-supervised/home-based group, and patients may select to participate to either a home-based or class-based regime.
Exercise therapy in patients with myopathy
TLDR
Further research is needed to determine the optimum training protocols for patients with various types of myopathy, and in particular to improve the ability of patients to be active and independent in daily life.
Impact of a home-based activity and dietary intervention in people with slowly progressive neuromuscular diseases.
A high-intensity functional weight-bearing exercise program for older people dependent in activities of daily living and living in residential care facilities: evaluation of the applicability with focus on cognitive function.
TLDR
It is suggested that a high-intensity functional weight-bearing exercise program is applicable for use, regardless of cognitive function, among older people who are dependent in activities of daily living, living in residential care facilities, and have an MMSE score of 10 or higher.
