Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Training

Author(s): David Miller*

According to a recent analysis, cardiovascular disorders appear to be the major cause of death in people who have had a spinal cord injury. Due to the significant circulatory demand imposed by wheelchair propulsion, cardiovascular fitness is highly important in the wheelchair-dependent population. Despite the fact that there is strong evidence that endurance training improves cardiovascular health and that spinal cord injured persons are interested in exercise and sport programmers, these aspects of rehabilitation may not always be appropriately addressed. The general public, as well as persons with heart disease and a variety of other chronic ailments, have been given recommendations for fitness programmers. Only a few authors have suggested activity programmers for people with spinal cord injuries. The purpose of this study is to examine at patients who have experienced a spinal cord injury's fitness level, cardiorespiratory capacity, and reaction to endurance training programmers. Based on this review, the reader should be able to establish general guidelines for activity programmers for people with spinal cord injuries. A sedentary lifestyle may occur from a loss of motor function as a result of a spinal cord injury, and a devastating cycle is likely to emerge due to a lack of incentive to exercise.
