EXERCISE AS MEDICINE
Exercise is implicated as a "first-line treatment" of several chronic diseases including:
Psychiatric diseases (depression, anxiety, stress, schizophrenia);
Neurological diseases (dementia, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis);
Metabolic diseases (obesity, hyperlipidemia, metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome, type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes);
Cardiovascular diseases (hypertension, coronary heart disease, heart failure, cerebral apoplexy, and claudication intermittent);
Pulmonary diseases (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, cystic fibrosis);
Musculoskeletal disorders (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, back pain, rheumatoid arthritis);
In the medical world it is traditional to prescribe the evidence-based treatment known to be the most effective and entailing the fewest side effects or risks. The evidence suggests that in many cases exercise therapy is just as effective as medical treatment and in special situations even more effective.
