Synopsis:
Written for those allied health professionals who may work in a clinical exercise setting, Clinical Exercise Physiology is designed as an essential resource for those students and practicing professionals who do not have a deep background in exercise physiology. It also provides a thorough introduction to the most common clinical conditions any exercise science graduate might encounter when they enter the fitness industry as athletic trainers or physical educators. The text walks through possible conditions or disorders that affect the various body systems and discusses how exercise may play a role in their treatment and prevention. Chapters on behavior change theory help readers understand motivations that prompt individuals to make behavior and life-style changes, as well as nutritional modifications.

Key Features:
- Opens with two important chapters on health behavior theories and behavior change, topics often not covered in other texts.
- Provides an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the various systems to be covered prior to the chapters that discuss the application of exercise prescription to the diseases or conditions related to the specific system.
- A unique chapter on pregnancy outlines the specialized exercise prescription program for expecting mothers.
- A robust pedagogy includes key concept chapter openers, end-of-chapter review questions, key words and definitions, bibliography, and comprehensive tables and figures throughout the text.
- Case studies help students apply critical thinking skills to specific prescriptions.
