Exercise is Medicine

 

 

The Healing Moves Foundation has joined the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Exercise is Medicine™ network in an effort to promote physical activity as part of a patient’s treatment plan.

 

The guiding principles of Exercise is Medicine™ are shared by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American Medical Association (AMA). They are designed to help improve the health and well-being of our nation through a regular physical activity prescription from doctors and other health care providers.

The guiding principles of Exercise is Medicine™ are as follows:

  • Exercise and physical activity are important to health and the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases
  • More should be done to address physical activity and exercise in healthcare settings
  • ACSM and AMA are making efforts to bring a greater focus on physical activity and exercise in healthcare settings
