The health professional physical activity website, Motivate2Move has launched a new section on sedentary behaviour and musculoskeletal conditions which highlights the dangers of too much sitting. Written by two physiotherapists, this key resource is designed for the health professional workforce to give them the knowledge and evidence to promote physical activity for health.

The physiotherapist researchers have added a new section on musculoskeletal conditions to provide health professionals with knowledge and practical tools to help their patients manage and improve conditions such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

Motivate2Move has also been updated with the latest research findings and other new features, including practical advice for activity in type 1 diabetes, read codes for computers, the Scots PASQ screening tool, the CMO Infographics and suggested audits for practitioners and benefits for patients. Motivate2Move continues to be used free across the UK by an increasing number of allied health professions providing easy access to information.

GPs, physiotherapists and health professionals can access Motivate2Move via the Wales Deanery website.
