From presentation by Dr. Teresa Liu-Ambrose, PT, PhD, UBC
- Physical activity is a legitimate medical therapy for dementia prevention.
- Physical activity benefits exceed those of pharmaceutical agents.
- Moderate physical activity is beneficial for cognitive and brain health, even among those at greater risk for dementia.
- Starting to exercise in late life is not futile: Even those sedentary can improve function.
- No effective pharmaceutical approach is currently available for dementia.
- Walking 2 times around a standard track in 15 minutes per day can be neuroprotective!
- Benefits were not restricted to those at the highest level of physical activity.
