Abstract

Physical activity has beneficial effects on the common disorders of later life. General practice is a potentially important setting for promotion of physical activity among older adults, but the effectiveness of such interventions is presently unknown. The aim of this article is to review the effectiveness of physical activity interventions for adults aged 50 and above, delivered through general practice.
