The benefits of physical activity and maintaining a sensible weight for helping to prevent and reverse many health conditions are becoming increasingly better known and appreciated. But how do you broach the topic with a patient who doesn’t realise or perhaps doesn’t want to know that their lifestyle is damaging their health? How do you encourage lasting behavioural change? Physical and manual therapists are uniquely placed to begin these conversations and this article, in conjunction with the resources at Moving Medicine and Co-Kinetic, provides the tools and confidence to go about it in the most effective way in however much or little time you have available. In addition to doing the best for your patients, it might also enable you to broaden the services you offer and your client base.
