Austin Sports Medicine: Exercise and the Immune System

It’s time for another Austin Sports Medicine 101 class!


It’s no secret that people who exercise regularly have stronger immune systems and generally live longer. Being fit makes you less prone to health-related issues. Exercise is good for you – we all know that! But did you know that exercise really is the best medicine?

Research suggests that exercise can be more effective than antidepressants and, in some cases, blood pressure medication and diabetes drugs. So being fit will keep you healthier. And it’s one of the best remedies for when problems do pop up.

For those of you who are wanting to exercise more but are waiting until you feel 100%, consult your doctor and start exercising as soon as possible. You don’t have to be training for a marathon to reap big benefits from exercise. Be consistent – even if that means just a few times a week – with what you can do in your life now.
