Physiological and Biomechanical Benefits of Resistance Exercise for Joint Disease examines theimpact of resistance exercise on individuals who have joint-related disease. From a physiologicaland biomechanical perspective, the DVD reviews how resistance exercise affects several types ofjoint disease, including low back pain, knee osteoarthritis, and knee arthritis. Featuring threewell-respected health/fitness professionals the DVD provides over two hours of information,ideas, and insights on a critical topic.

Among the topics covered:

  • Current research
  • RX considerations for LBP
  • Resistance training and knee arthritis (KevinR. Vincent)
  • Benefits of resistance exercise
  • What about biomechanics?
  • Resistance exercise and changes in gait forpersons with joint diseases (Heather K. Vincent)
  • So…can resistance exercise actuallyimprove gait?
  • What about the knee`s adductor moment?
  • Bridging the gap between the clinic andresearch: using computed tomographyand fluoroscopic imaging to assessexercise training effects on joints in vivo(Scott A. Banks)
