Exercise physiologists work to prevent or delay the onset of chronic disease in healthy participants or to provide therapeutic or functional benefits to patients with known disease.
Research by scientists trained in Exercise physiology will greatly expand the understanding of the ways in which exercise affects cell function. Advances in research in Exercise Physiology will provide a foundation for many types of exercises related treatment, rehabilitation and bring improvement in the training of sport persons. The area includes cardiovascular , diabetes , aging , sports and female participation obesity, physiological aspects of extreme sports, disuse atrophy and other ailments too.
