Evidence supporting exercise interventions for persons in early-stage Alzheimer's disease
The purpose of this article is to grade research evidence supporting exercise-based interventions for persons with early-stage dementias and to report the recommendations of a consensus panel. The search produced 11 databased articles testing the effects of exercise interventions on a variety of outcomes. The body of evidence to support exercise interventions in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease is growing and has potential as a treatment modality following translational studies in recreation therapy and other fields.
