I really enjoyed this article. My first profession was nursing. During those 13 years of working I felt that the medical field was only looking at symptoms and giving a prescription, it was so frustrating. I left nursing and became a Personal Trainer specializing in post rehab and training clients with Chronic Ilnesses. I have noticed over the years that exercises do offer a great deal for our clients and in some cases improve their quality of life. I love to see my clients improving and slowly removing prescriptions out of their life, that is so gratifying. I do beleive that we need to bridge the health world and the exercise world, we are the missing key.
