The Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine and its Fellows and Members publishes useful documents for Clinical Commissioners (CCGs), the NHS, medical professionals an the public provising evidence and facts about Sport and Exercise Medicine's application to public health.
Our Fresh Approach documents outline the benefits of Exercise Medicine, putting forward the case for commissioning Exercise and Musculoskeletal (MSK) Medicine services via Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Boards and Trusts in the UK.
Exercise for Life helps the medical profession understand the benefits of exercise as a treatment and exercise prescription, which is vastly under used in the NHS.
The purpose of these documents is to encourage Commissioners and the NHS to provide exercise medicine and MSK medicine services to the general public in order to prevent and manage many common conditions and diseases.
Providing Physical Activity Interventions for People with Musculoskeletal Conditions
“This is an important document produced by Arthritis Research UK in partnership with DH, NHSE and PHE. As an advisor to the project, and a NHS Sport and Exercise Medicine Consultant, I know the value of this work as we encourage 'more people to be more active more of the time' – even those with arthritis. Physical Activity is good for helping patients prevent and treat OA, as well as co-morbidites that very typically co-exist. Building upon UK CMO guidelines the report provides practical Physical Activity advice for those with Musculoskeletal conditions".
