Universidad Europea runs a clinical exercise program with patients from the Hospital Niño Jesús

The initiative stresses the importance of exercise in treating different conditions in children

Exercise as medicine, as another medication. This is the cornerstone of the clinical exercise program run by Universidad Europea professors with patients at the Hospital Infantil Universitario Niño Jesús, in Madrid.

With no side effects, exercise -monitored by professionals and adapted to the physical ability of each patient and condition- can offer enormous benefits in terms of anorexia, cystic fibrosis, leukemia, solid tumors, cerebral paralysis, etc., as stressed by the experts involved in this initiative.

The initiative has drawn attention from the program “Madrid se mueve”, on Telemadrid, which recently broadcast a report on the work of Universidad Europea professionals at the hospital.
