Pediatric Exercise Medicine: From Physiologic Principles to Healthcare Applicationdraws from the most current research activity in the area to examine physical activity as a prerequisite to the good health and physical performance of children. The book also considers the effects of lack of exercise on children and the relevance of exercise to clinical pediatrics for children with chronic diseases.

While Pediatric Exercise Medicine: From Physiologic Principles to Healthcare Applicationemphasizes clinically related issues, it provides comprehensive coverage of the child-exercise-health triad of importance to all professionals serving young people. The text identifies current research in the area of pediatric exercise. It also helps the reader to compare the exercise responses of healthy children to the responses of children with clinical impairments. In turn, readers will recognize the factors that can influence children's activity behavior, trainability, and performance.

The book contains three chapters related to the normal physiological and perceptual exercise responses of the healthy child. The next nine chapters consider the effects of exercise on children with clinical impairments, including asthma, diabetes, cerebral palsy, and obesity.

A special feature is the coverage of children's trainability and the factors that can influence performance. The information, including environmental stressors on children, will be of interest to scholars and students as well as to coaches working in this area.

The book also has these features:

-Extensive graphic interpretation of the data—more than 250 illustrations

-Helpful reference tables

-Six appendixes on normative data, methods, energy-equivalent tables for different activities,scaling for body size, and a glossary of terms.
In Pediatric Exercise Medicine: From Physiologic Principles to Healthcare Application,you'll find content you can apply in your daily work as a therapist, exercise scientist, physician, or other professional. You'll also find evidence-based rationale for the need for physical activity as a preventive measure and treatment of disease in children.

Dietary supplement companies and the food industry spend millions to reach resistance trainers—often with exaggerated marketing messages—while health practitioners continue to counsel athletes that their interest in protein is misguided and even dangerous. There appears to be a disconnect between scientists and almost everyone else in sports nutrition. With so much conflicting information, it’s difficult to know who to believe. With contributions from the world’s foremost experts, Dietary Protein and Resistance Exercise delivers the uncut scientific truth about the role of dietary protein in the well-being of athletes.

Updating and clarifying the issues surrounding purposeful protein intake and resistance trainers, this volume:

  • Reviews the science-related history of protein and its consumption among strength athletes
  • Analyzes the mechanisms behind what proteins do in muscle cells
  • Describes protein’s effect on performance, recovery, and body composition
  • Explores various populations that actively employ resistance training and dietary protein
  • Discusses timing, type, and safety data regarding liberal protein diets and related supplements
  • Includes sidebars, practical examples, and case studies—translating the science into a practical understanding of various protein-related topics

Separating fact from fiction and providing the hard science behind the numbers, this volume demonstrates how changes in dietary protein intake may lead to measurable improvements in body composition, energy levels, and athletic performance.

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a technique that delivers mild electrical currents across the intact surface of the skin to reduce pain. TENS is used by practitioners throughout the world to manage painful conditions and TENS equipment can be purchased by the general public so that they can self-administer treatment. There are thousands of experimental and clinical research studies published on TENS and related techniques yet there is uncertainty about the best way to administer TENS in clinical practice. This is because currents used during TENS can be administered in a variety of ways and the findings of research studies have been inconclusive. This book provides guidance on how best to use TENS based on an evaluation of current research evidence. The book covers what TENS is, how it works, and safe and appropriate clinical techniques for many conditions including chronic low back pain, osteoarthritis and cancer pain. It also offers solutions to the problems faced by researchers when trying to design clinical trials on TENS. Accessibility written, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) provides a comprehensive coverage of research issues and findings about TENS and will essential readings for healthcare professionals, practitioners and students.
