Campaign Overview

Exercise is Medicine® is committed to the belief that exercise and physical activity are integral to the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and should be regularly assessed as part of medical care. Along with the National Physical Activity Plan, Exercise is Medicine® strives to make physical activity a “vital sign” that is routinely assessed at every patient interaction with a health care provider.

Exercise is Medicine® is a multi-organizational initiative coordinated by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), designed to improve the health and well-being of our nation through a regular physical activity prescription from doctors and other health care providers, or from a health and fitness professional working with a health care provider. The guiding principles 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 health care settings.

Multi-organizational efforts to bring a greater focus on physical activity and exercise in health care settings are to be encouraged.

We invite you to get involved with efforts in the Exercise is Medicine® campaign by promoting exercise, weight management and lifestyle intervention to individuals, family and friends who may be suffering from chronic and often preventable diseases due to inactivity, obesity and stress. If you or someone you know is suffering from ailments due to poor diet and physical inactivity, individuals suffering from excessive low back pain or structural imbalance due to excess body weight and muscular atrophy, please refer them to our consulting team, prevention experts for the Exercise is Medicine® campaign. Some insurance coverage may apply.
