Exercise is Medicine® Australia has developed a number of factsheets and resources to help educate you on the role of exercise in the treatment of chronic conditions or disorders. Two factsheets are available for most conditions; The first is a “professional” version aimed at doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, and the second is a “public” version aimed for patients and the general public. The factsheets provide information on:

  • the condition;
  • the benefits of exercise;
  • how exercise produces benefits for that condition; and
  • the most appropriate exercise for that condition.
