Life After Diagnosis
After a person has been diagnosed with a neurological condition it is common for them to experience a loss in conditioning that may involve one or more of the following:
Practically, this may impact on a person’s ability to complete normal daily activities such as cleaning, working or ability to interact in social settings. Compounding this deconditioning, neurological conditions often come with specific impairments such as spasticity, lowered muscle tone or contractures. Neurological research often links deconditioning and neurological impairments as working together to increase the impact that a disease has on an individual’s life. As such, improving conditioning may lessen the impact that the impairments have.
There is a need for people with neurological conditions to build and maintain as much aerobic capacity, strength and balance as possible to lessen the impact of impairments on their daily activities.
