Exercise for Brain Health

Date Published: June 22, 2021

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of regular aerobic exercise to the preservation of brain health, memory and cognition.
  • Describe how exercise may enhance the process of neuroplasticity and the brain's ability to develop new circuits.
  • Identify components of a successful recipe for an exercise program to preserve brain wellness across the aging continuum.
  • Understand the challenges of virtual exercise instruction.

Summary

Experience how exercise can rewire the brain, promote wellness, and may positively impact the progression of neurologic age-related changes. Neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to create new circuits, maybe the driving mechanism behind positive functional and cognitive changes in people with Alzheimer's Disease, and age-related memory and cognitive loss. Exercise enhances this neuroplastic response Understand the importance of structured sessions of high-intensity aerobic training followed by goal-based task-specific exercise using quality repetition. Learn the recipe for success to create a personal training agenda or group exercise program for the aging population using aerobic exercise, focused functional mobility practice, with memory/cognitive and dual tasking challenges. Understand the importance of integrating humor and fostering a positive attitude of hope to class instruction. This presentation will include both lecture and interactive format.
 
Agenda:
  • Brief review of pathophysiology, symptoms and presentation of Alzheimer's Disease and the normal aging process (10 minutes)
  • Discussion of neuroplasticity - definition and how exercise may positively impact this process in the brain (10 minutes)
  • Understand the ingredients for a successful recipe for a group exercise class targeting the dementia population, and anyone working on enhanced memory and cognition.(10 minutes)
  • Exercise demonstration (25 minutes)
  • Q&A (5 minutes)

Knowledge Translation in Neurologic PT: Optimizing Use of Standardized Outcome Measures Across the Continuum of Care

Date Published: March 13, 2018

Summary

This course will describe the process of knowledge translation (KT) and strategies to optimize use of standardized outcome measures (SOMs) in the acute and inpatient rehabilitation levels of care. Several factors now foster improved KT and evidence-based practice in neurologic PT, including the widespread use of the electronic medical record, the emergence of clinical practice guidelines from the Academy of Neurologic PT, and the growth of board-certified specialists in neurologic PT. The Knowledge-to-Action Framework will be reviewed and examples of KT projects will be described. Then, efforts at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center will be discussed, toward a larger KT project focused on the upcoming Core Measures in Neurologic Physical Therapy Clinical Practice Guideline.

The Role of Aerobic Exercise in Improving Motor Outcomes in Stroke and Parkinson's Disease

Date Published: June 9, 2020

Summary

It is hypothesized that aerobic exercise (AE) temporarily increases levels of neurotransmitters and neurotrophic growth factors, enhancing neuroplasticity. It is theorized that this phenomenon could be exploited to improve motor outcomes in individuals with neurological disease. We have conducted several clinical trials examining the effects of intensive AE on motor recovery in Parkinson’s disease and stroke. The results of these trials have suggested that intensive AE may improve gait and upper extremity motor outcomes, in addition to modestly improving cardiovascular fitness. Improvements in global motor performance indicate that high intensity AE is likely enhancing central nervous system function. Importantly, the clinical rating improvements often persisted eight weeks after ending treatment. We will report the results of these studies, present a review of current literature, and discuss how to translate these encouraging findings into clinical practice.

Upon completion of the course, the attendee will be able to:
  1. Describe the potential mechanism underlying the neurophysiologic benefits of high intensity aerobic exercise in individuals with stroke and Parkinson’s disease based on animal and human models.
  2. Describe methodology associated with applying aerobic exercise as an antecedent to task practice.
  3. Discuss the motor and non-motor outcomes following a forced exercise and voluntary exercise paradigm in individuals with Parkinson’s disease and chronic stroke.
  4. Integrate methodology discussed in lecture to translate aerobic exercise intervention safely to the clinical environment.
