Exercise Physiology in Special Populations,
Edition 1 Advances in Sport and Exercise Science
By John P. Buckley, BPE, MSc, PhD, BASES, Accr, Neil Spurway, MA, PhD and Don MacLaren

Publication Date: 14 Aug 2008
Exercise Physiology in Special Populations covers the prevalent health conditions that are either linked to an inactive lifestyle or whose effects can be ameliorated by increasing physical activity and physical fitness. The book explores physiological aspects of obesity and diabetes before moving on to cardiac disease, lung disease, arthritis and back pain, ageing and older people, bone health, the female participant, neurological and neuromuscular disorders, and spinal chord injury. The author team includes many of the UK’s leading researchers and exercise science and rehabilitation practitioners that specialise in each of the topic areas.New to the popular Advances in Sport and Exercise Science series, this book covers key aspects of exercise physiology including: •Coronary Heart Disease & Cardiac Dysfunction •Neurological disorders (Strokes, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Head Injury) •Spinal cord injuries •Obesity & Diabetes •Amputees •Downs syndrome •Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease •Musculo-rheumatological disorders and pain •Bone Health •Older People •HIV/Aids •The female exercise participant

Key Features

· Structured in an easy accessible way for students and lecturers· Well referenced, including a further reading list with each chapter..· Written by a group of highly experienced experts.
