What Is It?

As physiotherapists we already know that exercise is an incredibly important component in the prevention and treatment of co-morbidities, however it can be a challenge at times to achieve buy in with our patients. The Exercise is Medicine Canada website is a great resource for reinforcing this idea. Through the use of patient handouts, posters and flowcharts, you can easily increase your patients motivation to exercise on a daily basis.

Our Thoughts:

This is a great website with a simple message. Posters reinforcing the importance of exercise are great additions to physiotherapy clinics and exercise prescription handouts make prescribing patients general exercise programs easy. Underneath the “EIMC In Action” heading, you will also find links to exercise resources from other organizations such as the Canadian Paediatric Society, Canadian Diabetes Association, Cancer Care and Osteoporosis Canada.
