SEM physicians are also specialists in the prescription of exercise for health in both healthy populations and those with specific conditions such as arthritis and other rheumatological disease, diabetes, heart disease, lung conditions, neurological conditions, cancer and many others. It is now well known that there are many benefits of exercise in both the healthy population and those with chronic illness for both prevention and management of these conditions.
If you are currently sedentary or have never exercised in your life, a SEM physician can help you achieve your activity goals in a safe and healthy way. General health screening can also be performed prior to starting an exercise program guided by your specialist SEM physician. Exercise is medicine and it’s never too late to start!
