About this Channel 

Long term neuromuscular conditions carry a significant burden to the individual, their families and carers, the NHS, and to society as a whole. Neuromuscular conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease, and epilepsy result from damage to the brain, spinal column or peripheral nerves. Some neuromuscular conditions are life threatening, with many severely affecting an individual’s quality of life.

These educational presentations will allow you the opportunity to advance your knowledge and understanding of various medical conditions and special populations. Additionally, we will explore the benefits that exercise has on these specific client groups.

About This Channel

Metabolic syndrome is the medical term for a combination of non-communicable diseases including diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure) and obesity. It places individuals at greater risk of developing coronary heart disease, stroke and other disorders that affect the blood vessels.


Each disease on their own (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity) can damage the blood vessels, but having all three together is particularly problematic. These conditions are commonly related, which explains why metabolic syndrome impacts the lives of an estimated 1 in 3 older adults aged 50 or older in the United Kingdom.

Cancer & Exercise

About This Channel

One in two adults will be directly affected by cancer before the age of 75, with breast, prostate and bowel cancers accounting for over half (53%) of all new cancer cases in the United Kingdom in 2017 (Cancer Research UK). In 2017, approximately 187,000 new cancer cases were reported in males and 179,000 new cases in females. This equates to approximately 367,00 new cancer cases in the United Kingdom each year. The older population group (>75 years or older) account for 36  per cent of all cancer cases. Regrettably, this indicates that every two minutes someone in the United Kingdom will be diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer continues to be a global killer, despite the high volume of research and pioneering work performed over the last decade. By 2020 the worldwide population will be approximately 7.5 billion and from this it is projected that 15 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed, and regrettably 12 million cancer patients will die (Brayand and Moller (2007). The association between physical activity, diet, and cancer is observed from varying rates of specific cancers in several countries.

About This Channel

Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis make-up over 150 diseases and syndromes which are generally progressive and associated with severe pain and disability (WHO, 2018). These conditions are generally categorised as joint diseases, spinal disorders and conditions resulting from trauma. Osteoarthritis is a local degenerative joint disease affecting one or multiple joints and most commonly in the hands, hips, spine, and knees. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disease in which there is a pathologic activity of the immune system against joint tissues. Other common rheumatic diseases include fibromyalgia, systemic lupus erythematosus, gout, and bursitis.
