Do you want to feel better, move better and sleep better? Experts now say that any amount of physical activity counts toward better health — even just a few minutes! Despite the mobility limitations that people may face, everyone can find ways to be active and live healthier. Fortunately, there are many ways that people with mobility restrictions, such as using a wheelchair or living with limb amputation, can adapt exercise to stay physically fit. Being active will improve your strength, energy and coordination. The benefits of regular physical activity include decreasing your risk for obesity, heart disease, diabetes and depression. For those in wheelchairs, being active can reduce the risk of bladder infections, skin breakdown and breathing problems.
