Chronic Disease and Physician-Prescribed Exercise
Chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease are major public health concerns in our aging population. Chronic disease is a leading cause of death and disability in the United States.
The general health care system works well for treating short-term medical problems, such as broken bones or infections. Medical advances are generally helping people live longer. But obesity and unhealthy habits are reaching epidemic proportions, resulting in the increase of chronic disease.
Urgent change is needed in our current health care system. We need to take action to instill healthy habits in people who experience these chronic health conditions.
SPRINGWELL is taking a huge step in that direction. We draw on the incredible benefits that exercise has on the treatment and prevention of chronic disease.
Preventive health initiatives like SPRINGWELL’s medical fitness program offer a significant cost benefit to patients. Without the support of a medical fitness clinic, patients might resort to costly surgery or expensive medications, which each come with their own risks.
Regular exercise gives patients control over their own health and drastically improves their quality of life.
Experts agree that personal behavior, nutrition, and physical activity are just as important as medication in the treatment of chronic disease. Prescribing exercise is an emerging trend, but one that is quickly becoming very powerful within our health care system.
As doctors increasingly prescribe exercise, people who have never exercised in their life come to see us at SPRINGWELL Exercise Clinic. Doctors refer patients to us again and again because they see that the SPRINGWELL Exercise Clinic works!
According to the Centers for Disease Control, older adults should be getting 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate exercise per week. Activities should involve muscle strengthening, balance training, and aerobics for the full benefit.
The level of activity should be determined on an individual level. Consider how chronic or other health conditions affect one’s ability to exercise safely- medical fitness is not a one size fits all approach.
For adults unable to meet the suggested amount of exercise per week, some is still better than none. At SPRINGWELL, our members work with coaches to build up endurance and steadily increase what they are able to accomplish.
Physical activity has been shown to improve functional ability and decrease the likelihood of falls and injuries. It is also a critical component for recovering from fractures or surgeries. Exercising can even reduce the risk of certain types of cancers.
Exercise also has a benefit for brain health. It can help prevent cognitive decline, treat anxiety, and improve sleep quality.
Adults with chronic health conditions should be performing these exercises in a clinically supervised environment. A medical fitness clinic such as a SPRINGWELL ensures they are performing all activities safely and not putting themselves at risk.
