Exercise, is it on your “To Do” List?

For those with many existing chronic conditions who are understandably hesitant about returning to exercise😷 Please know that we are absolutely certain Exercise Therapy is Beneficial for you.💪🤸‍♂️🏋️🚴🏌🏼‍♀️🧘🏻‍♂️🕺💃

Those with multimorbidites (many conditions) improve both Psychosocial and Physical health with Exercising 2 – 3x per week regardless of the combination of conditions. 🤔😯🧐

Bricca, Harris and Jager et al’s (2021) review, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, illustrates the benefits of supervised exercise therapy for those with complex presentations, that are often unsuccessful treated with a modern allopathic medical model.

The studies review included leading causes of global disability that share risk factors and that have coexisting conditions, plus all studies had 80+ % of participants with 2 or more chronic conditions such as:

Osteoarthritis (OA).

Hypertension.

Type 2 Diabetes.

Depression.

Heart Failure.

Ischaemic Heart Disease (IHD).

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

In my experience, I’m sure returning to your regular weekly exercise therapy session will be beneficial to you if you have these conditions👍For help and assistance feel free to contact me. Christmas is coming and new year resolutions shouldn’t be the only time you try to start being heathy… 🥗🚰🏋️🧘🏻‍♂️🌛😃

Exercise however, comes in many forms so do keep consistently active and do what you can with what you have 👌

➡️Bottom Line:

Movement should be the drug of choice, and it’s free, get addicted and do it safely! Haven’t we inheritantly known exercise is positive for health for hundreds of years… 🤦🤷🏼 Start today👍
