Keiser Etiology and Physiological Representation of Diabetes Presentation

Need help with my Health & Medical question – I’m studying for my class.


The purpose of this final assignment is to demonstrate your understanding and application of exercise physiology principles to the treatment of a patient in the physical therapy setting with a specific condition or diagnosis.

Choose a topic from the list below. You will create a presentation based on this topic that demonstrates how the specific disease condition or diagnosis can be addressed through the principles of exercise physiology.

You may choose to develop a PowerPoint presentation with a suggested length of 10-12 slides or a video presentation with suggested length of 7-8 minutes.

You must use a minimum of 2 research articles to develop your presentation and provide a references list utilizing the Level 3 Writing Guidelines.

Pick from the following topics or contact your instructor if you’d like to research a different topic.

  1. Severely Deconditioned
  2. Diabetes
  3. Pulmonary Disease
  4. Arthritis
  5. Cystic Fibrosis
  6. Cerebral Palsy
  7. Multiple Sclerosis
  8. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  9. Spinal Cord Injury
  10. Osteoporosis
  11. End Stage Renal Disease
  12. Cancer

  2. Establishes importance of topic
  3. Prepares audience for rest of presentation (i.e. overview, objectives stated, etc.)


1.Includes brief description of etiology and physiological representations of disease/condition/diagnosis

2.Relates exercise physiology concepts (energy systems, energy transfer, exercise training principles, FITT principle, etc.) in addressing the disease

3.Integrates appropriate nutritional information

4.Incorporates the role of physical therapy

5.Knowledge of subject matter is apparent

CONCLUSION (10 points)
