Physical Deconditioning


  • RESULTS: 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]
  • Pattern A is seen earlier, where the potential for cardiopulmonary disease is present, but not manifest.[mhmedical.com]
  • 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]
  • The present study tested the hypothesis that HDBR deconditioning would modify the forebrain organization for heart rate (HR) control during baroreflex unloading.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Data are presented as mean SD and statistical significance was achieved at p 0.05).[archive.rubicon-foundation.org]
  • –Pulmonary (lungs): mild lung collapse, pneumonia, decreased oxygen to the organs (hypoxemia), increased difficulty breathing with activity and at rest.[sralab.org]
Loss of Appetite
  • –Digestive (gastrointestinal and bowel): loss of appetite, constipation. –Urinary: loss of bladder control (incontinence), bladder infection, electrolyte imbalance.[sralab.org]
Orthostatic Hypotension
  • In contrast to the exercise control group, the saline and dobutamine groups developed orthostatic hypotension, tachycardia, and accentuation of the renin-aldosterone response over the 3-wk treatment period; for the saline group, this is best explained[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Some of these effects include: –Cardiovascular (heart): decrease in cardiac output, faster heart rates at rest and with activity, decreased blood pressure in upright positions (orthostatic hypotension), decreased ability to exercise.[sralab.org]
Chest Pain
  • Stop exercising and notify your doctor if your heart rate remains elevated for more than five or six minutes after you stop exercising or if you experience any type of chest pain, nausea, shortness of breath or other signs of cardiac distress, warns the[livestrong.com]
  • This physical deconditioning contributes in varying degrees to lifelong medical complications, including accelerated cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, osteopenia, and visceral obesity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Decreased physical activity alone without actual confinement to bed may result in skeletal calcium loss. 15 Gaber et al. 16 have shown that patients with CLBP have an increased incidence of osteopenia and osteoporosis.[clinicalgate.com]
  • –Psychological: confusion, disorientation, anxiety, depression. These changes can affect the ability to do self care, to walk, to engage in leisure activities and to work.[sralab.org]


  • Our findings indicate that 24 h of HDBR minimized the impact of diuretic treatment on baseline autonomic and cardiovascular variables.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Exercise, hemodynamic, and metabolic studies were performed at base line and at the termination of the 3-wk treatment period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • […] overweight/obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension, and dyslipidemia—the latter as depressed high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and elevated triglycerides—are strongly associated with physical deconditioning, which is common after SCI/D and worsens the prognosis[link.springer.com]
