How to deliver exercise in the community and co-location of services

Wednesday 8th May 14:55 - 15:35

Co-location of physio/MSK services in community gyms de-medicalises the treatment and promotes health and wellbeing, encouraging patients to take up regular long term exercise.

It also enables an exercise MDT approach including Rehabilitation Therapists, Physiotherapists, Health Advisers and fitness industry professionals

The objective is to prevent long term conditions including MSK (primary prevention) or reduce re-referral (secondary prevention) with an increasing emphasis on biopsychosocial approach/coaching, empowerment, shared decisions, self-care and prevention
