Should exercise be prescribed by doctors?

Mar 17, 2017

Most medical researchers agree -- Exercise is good for you. But a recent study shows that most physicians do not have the training or expertise to help their patients make exercise part of their health regime. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Jordan Metzl, a sports medicine physician, about prescribing exercise. Metzl practices at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 a.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
