Getting a Shirt Off--The Elbow Hook

Do you a have a buddy that you work with that has a terrible time getting their shirt off when you are going for a swim?

It took me a little bit to figure it out for him but I discovered he has been missing the "elbow hook". 

The pulling of the neck or trying to pull the arm through first has been a source of stress for my friend until I taught him the elbow hook. 

Here is how it goes:
1. Reach across the front of the belly to grab the bottom of the shirt. 
2. Lift the bottom of the shirt over the opposite elbow. 
3. Now pull up with the elbow and hand together pulling the shirt over the head. 

Try it yourself thinking about the steps. You might find out it is EXACTLY what you do yourself!

Is Exercise a THERAPY or is it THERAPEUTIC?

Or is it both?

I am in a discussion with an Occupational Therapist who has concerns over the use of the words Exercise IS Therapy as the name of my organisation.

Fair enough.  In order to practice OTs and Physiotherapists belong to a provincially governed professional groups, or Colleges like other professionals (Physicians, Teachers).  Each group provides specialised treatments in the area that they were trained.

Kinesiologists are also trained in an area of specialised treatments.  In BC practicing Kinesiologists are encouraged to join the BC Association of Kinesiologists. Membership in this association allows practitioners to get access to liability insurance (that OTs, PTs, and MDs also carry).  In Ontario Kinesiologists have had the opportunity to create a provincially governed professional College of Kinesiologists.

So here are my questions:
Do you consider EXERCISE to be a therapy?
Should EXERCISE be a service that can be prescribed AND COVERED by extended benefit plans?

Please weigh in with a comment.
