Case Studies: How An EP Help Your Patients Treat/Manage Their Condition...

1) An overweight patient with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure

After examining the patient’s medical history, medications, and conducting a musculoskeletal assessment, the AEP will develop an integrated exercise and nutrition program to assist the patient to reduce body fat levels, improve blood glucose control and reduce blood pressure. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce blood pressure by up to 10 mm Hg and significantly increase insulin sensitivity.

An exercise program will be designed that takes into account any musculoskeletal or biomechanical concerns and the patient’s current fitness level. This information will be used to determine the most appropriate exercise options.

Nutritional advice may also be provided to assist the patient to achieve their health goals. The program may also include some supervised exercise sessions to ensure the patient is exercising at the appropriate intensity. Blood glucose levels may also be monitored before and after exercise to ensure the patient is exercising safely.

2) A patient who had a recent coronary infarction requiring the implantation of a stent

The AEP will review the patient’s history and cardiologist’s report (including any results of relevant cardiac investigations such as an exercise stress test) to assess the patient’s current cardiac risk profile. The patient’s exercise tolerance and medications will be reviewed to develop a safe and effective exercise program so as to improve exercise capacity and quality of life.

Relevant advice on the optimal exercise type and intensity will be provided, and supervised exercise sessions will be conducted initially to ensure exercise safety and provide reassurance. Nutritional advice may also be provided to assist with any issues related to blood cholesterol and weight management.

3) A patient who has chronic lower back pain, knee osteoarthritis after surgery, and an unstable shoulder

 Following a definitive diagnosis of the back and shoulder pain, an AEP can design a specific exercise rehabilitation program that will strengthen and mobilise the musculoskeletal structures that support the joints, which may be contributing to the chronic pain cycle and reduce the re-occurrence of an injury.

4) A patient recently diagnosed with osteoporosis

High intensity strength training and impact exercise have been shown to be effective in increasing muscle strength and maintaining or even increasing bone density by up to 2%/year, which will assist in reducing the risk of a fracture during a fall. An AEP can design and supervise a specifically focused strength and balance training program, so as to reduce the possibility of a premature fracture during falls. The AEP may also be able to advise on a nutrition program to maximise the gains in muscle and bone mass with exercise.

5) A patient recently diagnosed with chronic depression

Regular exercise is now well recognised to reduce the symptoms associated with depressive illness. However, as these benefits are associated with high intensity weight training, it is important that exercise sessions are supervised by an AEP.

The AEP can also assist with motivation and compliance of the program, which is an important support mechanism especially for patients with a mental illness.

6) A patient undergoing chemotherapy after being diagnosed with cancer

Regular exercise not only reduces the risk of developing cancer, but has also been shown to be an important component in the rehabilitation process to maintain fitness and quality of life. The AEP will consider the type of cancer concerned, any resulting functional impairment and the type of treatment being undertaken.

As chemotherapy may lead to fatigue, compromised immune function and nausea, the AEP will be able to design a progressive exercise program that takes into consideration these concerns. The AEP will also work with your medical team to maximise the potential outcomes of the exercise program, while minimising any side effects
