Physical Deconditioning


  • There is conflicting evidence that cardiovascular deconditioning is present in CLBP and limited evidence for wasting of the multifidus muscle. No study examined the effectiveness of cardiovascular training specifically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The objectives of the present study were, firstly, to test the assumption that long-term non-specific LBP leads to a decrease of the level of physical activity (disuse), secondly, to evaluate any development of physical deconditioning as a result of disuse[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Pattern A is seen earlier, where the potential for cardiopulmonary disease is present, but not manifest.[mhmedical.com]

  • Exercise, hemodynamic, and metabolic studies were performed at base line and at the termination of the 3-wk treatment period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • As a consequence physical reconditioning has been proposed as treatment-goal in patients with chronic low back pain (LBP). However, it is still unclear whether a patient's physical fitness level really decreases after pain-onset.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
