Abstract

Exercise seems to be an effective, safe and cost effective treatment modality for mildly depressed and anxious patients. The exercise should be aerobic in nature. Individuality of prescription and frequent follow-up with attainable, reasonable goals are important. Physician interest should be high, and the patient should feel ownership of the program. Progression should be slow to lessen drop-out frequency.
