Matheson, Mavis J., MD.

Title: Exercise - What Is Right For You
[ Full Text Here ] Also reproduced in Issue No.3 - January 1997 of LINK-PIN
Author(s): Mavis J. Matheson. MD.
Original Publication: April 1995 (updated 2005).
Abstract/Extract: Many people with a history of polio can improve muscle strength and cardiovascular conditioning with an exercise program. One of the problems that people with Post-polio Syndrome face is how much exercise they should be doing. We have all been told to conserve our energy. We know that too much exercise will further damage already weak muscles. We also know that if a muscle is not exercised it will lose strength. So what should we be doing?

Title: Managing the Late Effects of Polio from a Life-Course Perspective
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Frederick M. Maynard.
Original Publication: Ann N Y Acad Sci 1995 May 25;753:354-360
Abstract/Extract: This paper reviews the implications of recent research investigations for the management of patients with PPS. It proposes that current knowledge supports the view that PPS is a secondary condition frequently occurring during the life course of people with residual motor impairment from paralytic poliomyelitis and does not support the view that PPS is a distinct pathological process which should be labeled a disease or illness.

Title: Recognizing Typical Coping Styles Of Polio Survivors Can Improve Re-Rehabilitation
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Frederick M. Maynard, MD and Sunny Roller, MA
Original Publication: Am. J. Phys. Med. Rehabil. Vol. 70, No. 2, April 1991
Abstract/Extract: During the past ten years many polio survivors in the U.S. have actively been seeking professional help for a wide range of new physical problems, commonly referred to as the late effects of polio. Often these persons require re-rehabilitation in order to continue their accustomed social roles. In our experience at the Post-Polio Program of the University of Michigan Medical Center, we have come to recognize among polio survivors three distinct patterns of emotional reaction to the need for re-rehabilitation. These patterns appear to result from characteristic styles of living with a chronic disability. We propose a model for categorizing polio survivors that is based on our observations. Although it is limited by overgeneralization, we have found that polio survivors themselves have verbally validated our proposed categories at many post-polio conferences. A 1963 study of children with polio and their families also describes early coping behaviors that are compatible with our model.

NOTES

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.

People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.

"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
