Title Addicted to exercise : when movement takes a dangerous turn / PESI ; Nicole Garber, MD, Jenni Schaefer
Published Eau Claire, WI : PESI, 2020


Description 1 online resource (148 minutes)
Summary Whether on its own or in collision with another mental health problem, pathological exercise is a serious and debilitating condition. Similar to substance use disorder, compulsive exercise can serve as a maladaptive coping strategy in response to increased arousal, hypervigilance, cognitive ruminations, and other trauma-related symptoms. Yet, in a society that glorifies more as better, movement that takes a turn to compulsive -- and dangerous -- is far too often missed and dismissed. Further, the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of pathological movement -- a process addiction -- can be complicated by the fact that balanced exercise provides clear health and healing benefits. From both a professional and patient perspective, this presentation discusses the intersection of exercise, trauma, substance use disorders, eating disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, and suicide. Utilizing neuroscience findings, the personality and temperament traits that increase an individual's risk of developing compulsive exercise in response to trauma will be described. This unique presentation discusses evidence-based as well as alternative treatment approaches
