Mike here – I’m one of our Exercise Physiologists working in our Pascoe Vale clinic and also offering sessions online. Let me explain about how Movement Is Medicine. It’s the theme for Exercise Right Week (May 25 – 31). Read on!
Movement Is Medicine
Prevention And Management Of Disease
So many diseases and illnesses can be lessened and prevented with evidence based exercise, hence the phrase “movement is medicine”.
Movement that improves your physiology is the BEST way to manage your health, in partnership with making well informed choices about your health, such as sleep, nutrition and managing stress.
Movement is a way of connecting with others in your community whilst looking after your physical health. It can be with small group classes (Strong To The Bone, Diabetes Classes). Also, connecting in the virtual with us via online telehealth. There’s also small group outdoor activities like walking; and my favourite golfing.
Self Confidence And Sense Of Achievement
There’s no better feeling than reaching a goal that requires discipline and motivation to do so. Regular exercise helps you achieve things and get more done.
Whether it’s productivity at work, your personal relationships, lowering the golf handicap, getting to the shops, trimming the hedges, enjoying the next holiday, looking after the grandchildren… Being active and making the best of your health with exercise is the key.
Value For Money
Exercise and movement is one of the best value investments you can make! Whether it’s no cost walking, or low cost like seeing an expert here at PridePlus Health.
Movement as medicine is unbelievably good value for money!
