Exercise is Medicine®
What if there was one medicine so powerful in maintaining and improving
health that it could prevent or treat dozens of diseases, such as diabetes,
hypertension, heart disease and obesity?
There is! It’s exercise. Exercise is Medicine® is a global initiative
to combat physical inactivity and improve people’s health and well-being.
Jupiter Medical Center is proud to be a member of the Exercise is Medicine network.
Benefits of Physical Activity
Most Americans do not exercise enough on a regular basis. Physical inactivity
is a fast-growing public health problem and contributes to a variety of
chronic diseases and health complications, including obesity, diabetes
and cancer. Regular physical activity helps manage weight and improve
your overall health. In addition, increasing physical activity has proven
effective in the treatment and prevention of chronic diseases, delaying
the effects of aging, and improving functional capacity and psychological
well-being at any age.
Our Exercise is Medicine program is specifically designed to support you
in achieving your optimum levels of health, social and emotional functioning.
You may benefit from this program if you are healthy but inactive or managing
any of the following medical conditions:
- Bariatric surgery
- Weight loss management
- Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase III
- Pulmonary conditions
- Cancer survivors who completed treatment within the last 5 years
- Patients who completed Jupiter Medical Center physical, occupational or
speech rehabilitation within the last 3 months
We believe that exercise is the best medicine and offer you the comfort
and security of a state-of-the-art hospital-based facility that is more
“health” than club. Our programs are led by degreed and certified
exercise specialists, and other health professionals.
