In a recent Medscape email, there is an article on the new joint venture of the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Medical Association for the prescription of exercise to all patients, called Exercise is Medicine (TM). It is good that they are addressing exercise as treatment, and they do have guidelines for <65 and 65+. However I could not find a mention of physical therapy, physical therapist, or APTA; interesting that their exercise prescription pad only allows for a physician’s signature. It is an interesting idea to have a prescription pad for wellness/ exercise, and from my adherence research two ways of improving adherence to exercise is physician recommendation and a prescription.
