  • Exercise improves physical and psychological well-being among people with spinal cord injury, pg 643
      This study demonstrates that individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) who exercise twice a week report having less pain, stress, and depression than individuals who do not exercise regularly. Study participants completed written questionnaires that assessed pain, stress, and depression at 0, 3, 6, and 9 months. The findings suggest that the beneficial effects of exercise on stress and depression are the result of two chain reactions. Exercise led to a change in pain that led to a change in stress and, in turn, a change in stress that led to a change in depression.

  • Older adults who exercise regularly have better health and more active lifestyle, pg 653
      This study compares the physical function of sedentary and physically active older veterans to the physical function of their civilian peers. Forty-four participants in an outpatient exercise program for older veterans were evaluated for lower-body strength and cardiorespiratory endurance. Test results were then compared to published national norms. Sedentary veterans scored significantly lower than exercising veterans and the national averages. This study emphasizes the positive associations between regular exercise and maintenance of physical functioning to maintain independent living.

  • Exercise promotes physical & mental well-being for nursing home residents, pg 659
      This study evaluates the effectiveness of a 6-month exercise program on functional performance, mental health, and depression in seniors who live in a nursing home. After the 6-month program, seniors who participated in the exercise program showed significant improvement in knee extension strength, were less depressed, and demonstrated more functional ability than seniors who did not exercise.
