About Clinical Exercise Sessions
What is a Clinical Exercise Session?
We work alongside doctors, local hospitals, physiotherapists and other health care professions who recommend patients to Longevity Health and Fitness for clinical exercise, but we welcome anyone with an interest of improving their health and fitness to get in contact with us.
Our clinical exercise sessions aim to manage chronic diseases, illnesses, or injuries, while improving longevity.
Chronic diseases are the number one cause of morbidity worldwide. Despite over 15 million people in England living with a chronic condition, including: heart disease, cancers, respiratory conditions, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, and lower back pain, for many living with a chronic illness can feel like you are alone. Currently medical professionals are working to provide treatment for the huge demand of these conditions, but a greater emphasis is needed to use ‘exercise as medicine’ to prevent the development and improve the management of these conditions.
With immense evidence supporting the need for exercise within chronic disease management, Longevity Health and Fitness works to prescribe clinical exercise to reduce the risk of chronic diseases, better manage and improve symptoms and conditions. We also provide a huge emphasis on improving physical, mental, and social wellbeing, self-confidence and proving education to our clients too.
