Description

Getting a prescription for a medication is nothing new. Neither is getting your doctor’s advice to exercise regularly. When that advice takes the form of a detailed plan tailored to your individual health goals it’s called an exercise prescription.

It’s a relatively new term that’s gaining traction across disease states – from diabetes to osteoarthritis to depression to cancer – and it’s particularly well suited to the treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Host, Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., a cardiologist and lipidologist with Baptist Health’s Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute welcomes Eli Friedman, M.D., the Institute’s director of sports cardiology, to talk about the ins and outs of exercise prescriptions.
