Exercise and Sports Medicine
Exercise stimulates tissue change and adaptation. Regular physical activity reduces the likelihood of medical illness, decreases the incidence of the major causes of death, and improves the overall health and quality of life for patients with most medical conditions. By increasing muscle mass and strength and fostering cardiovascular endurance, exercise improves functional status for sports and activities of daily living and protects against injury. Specific exercise programs are also commonly prescribed to rehabilitate patients after MI, major surgery, and musculoskeletal injury. Preoperative exercise regimens are prescribed before many elective surgical procedures to enhance postoperative recovery.
