It’s common sense that exercise can keep the doctor away. But, are you up-to-date on the research about why exercise is so important and the various exercise routines that are better indicated for certain types of mental health conditions?
In this course, we’ll cover the evidence on health risks associated with a lack of exercise. Nearly 35 chronic conditions have established correlations to a sedentary lifestyle including premature death, metabolic syndrome, obesity, cognitive dysfunction, mental health issues and so much more.
We’ll explore studies evaluating exercise as a first line of treatment for psychiatric symptoms. You’ll learn the small, but relevant evidence base for exercise recommendations for anxiety and depression. We’ll also explore when to refer patients for more specific exercise regimens. This course is designed for the provider who wants to spend less time prescribing and more time supporting patients with lifestyle changes.
- Dive into the evidence for the health risks of lack of exercise
