One thing that’s becoming clear is the growing need (and opportunity) for


health professionals to get involved in helping prevent further deterioration in the health of the nation.


As health and medical professionals, we hopefully have both the respect and trust of our patients and clients which puts us in an ideal position to offer advice on areas of wellbeing that might fall outside what has been our traditional scope of practice.


A vast majority of you who read sportEX medicine, will have received sound medical training and will be aware of the role that exercise can play in both the prevention and treatment of many medical conditions. It therefore strikes me that this is a golden opportunity to extend the scope of your practice and offer a wider range of services to your clients.


Our sister publication, sportEX health, covers just this subject and with online access to 10 years worth of articles there’s very little we haven’t covered! Why not order a sample issue by emailing subs@sportex.net - and explore the opportunities that this area presents?
