Overview

New Horizons in Pediatric Exercise Science brings together new reviews by leading international authorities on the impact of exercise on healthy children and children with chronic diseases. Clinicians, practitioners, and researchers who are interested in the effects of physical activity on the growing child will find comprehensive information on the endocrinologic aspects of pediatric exercise; physical activity, nutrition, and bone mineral development; exercise training in pediatric cardiac patients; nutrition and physical activity in developing countries; and the relationship between physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness. Using a multidisciplinary approach that adds to the body of knowledge in the growing subdiscipline of pediatric exercise science, this book goes beyond mere research compilation to include implications for clinical practice.
