Using Exercise and Other Physical Therapy Interventions to Optimize Functional Mobility

Below is a link to a PDF that was used for a presentation at the KDA annual conference. Anyone who follows my blog knows that I highly recommend developing a frequent and sustainable "smart" exercise program for those of us living with Kennedy's Disease (SBMA). The presentation expounds upon the benefits of a regular exercise program as well as provides warnings and tips.

As always, I recommend three things:
1. Consult with your doctor and a physical therapist before beginning any exercise program.
2. A PT familiar with KD or ALS is essential in the design of a sustainable program.
3. Don't overdo. Listen to your body.
