“The education of health care practitioners has yet to evolve into providing the information needed to ‘coach’ patients towards better health, through the use of things like exercise”
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
FPR’s Dr. Kevin Jardine spoke at the World Federation of Chiropractic conference in South Africa a couple of weeks ago and came away with an even stronger devotion for bringing the public strategies for self-care through the use of exercise.
Dr. Jardine emphasized that an important role of being a health care practitioner is educating people on the habits that should be practiced in order to avoid having to use the services of health care practitioners.
After the conference Dr. Jardine was interviewed by Cosmopolitan magazine in South Africa on the benefits of physical activity for the brain as well as the body. Some of the highlights of the interview include:
- The reasons why exercise makes people smarter
- How movement is medicine and should be used as a first-line treatment for being active and injury-free
- Why people don’t need to do a “full workout” everyday
- The de-conditioning disease: The disease entity of physical inactivity
