Clinical Exercise Physiology, Third edition provides a comprehensive look at the clinical aspects of exercise physiology by thoroughly examining the relationship between exercise and chronic disease and addressing diseases and populations that clinical exercise physiologists encounter in their work.
The two original goals of this book, as stated in the preface, are to disseminate the research associated with clinical exercise physiology and to provide a comprehensive resource for people working in the field.
Clinical exercise physiologists, sports medicine practitioners, exercise and sport science educators, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and physicians interested in treating their patients with exercise will benefit from the current information provided by this book.
The book is composed of 8 parts including 32 chapters. Additionally, there are a glossary, references and and an index at the end of the book. The book contains 70 figures including line drawings and 190 tables.
