Exercise is Medicine

In general, our society has a bias toward curative rather than palliative medicine, toward making the disease go away rather than finding ways to cope with disease

The unfortunate consequence of this perspective is that individuals with chronic disease or disability devalue functionality and well-being, thereby losing self-determination

Exercise is the solution, perhaps the greatest potential benefit of exercise is its ability to preserve functional capacity, freedom, and independence.  It's amazing we don't call it medicine
