Adaptive Rehabilitation for Heart Health
For many people, not having enough time or not finding exercise enjoyable are common reasons for a lack of physical activity. For individuals with disabilities, the reasons are much more complex. Physical activity is important for everyone to promote better heart health, which is why adaptive rehabilitation programs are so important. With adaptive rehabilitation and recreation programs, individuals with disabilities can not only improve their physical health, but also enjoy an enhanced quality of life.
