ALS Learning Series
ALS and Exercise
April 20, 2023
Many people living with ALS struggle to understand whether it is OK to exercise, what kind of exercise is most beneficial, and whether exercise slows disease progression. In this webinar, Hannah Redd, PT, DPT, NCS, will discuss the benefits of exercise among people living with ALS along with providing insight into appropriate exercises and signs of overworking. This talk will benefit both people living with ALS and their care teams by providing practical information on home exercise programs and outpatient therapy.
Hannah Redd specializes in providing patient care in the area of neuromuscular disorders at the outpatient neurologic clinic at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. She is currently an adjunct faculty member with the Northwestern University Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences and has previously been on faculty at Byrdine F. Lewis College of Nursing and Health Professions at Georgia State University and Emory University School of Medicine.
