Strengthening Exercises

The benefits of body strengthening are often overlooked by healthcare professionals and people living with a long-term condition.

But research tells us that providing physio-approved, evidence-based advice and guidance would encourage more people to get started. Stronger My Way is a behaviour change campaign set up to help patients access basic exercises to do strengthening on a more regular basis.
