Physical Activity and Alzheimer's Disease
1 NCSF CEU
Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. This progressive disease begins with mild memory loss and can lead to a loss in the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to the environment. Physical activity is a valuable part of any overall body wellness plan and is associated with a lower risk of cognitive decline. Research is still evolving, but evidence is strong that people can reduce their risk of cognitive decline by making key lifestyle changes, including participating in regular physical activity, staying socially engaged, and maintaining good heart health.
