Benefits of Physical Activity for people with disabilities

The benefits of physical activity for those living with disabilities are much the same as for those without a disability. Physical activity has been proven to be good for your body and mind. It also improves our overall health, and helps prevent long-term conditions.

For those with a disability, the right type of physical activity could help you manage this. This section is to help find the right type of exercise for you. There are also loads of exercises on the NHS website.

This can also go a long way in boosting your confidence. This could also encourage anyone living with disabilities to aim higher and achieve more.

Check out the infographic below for more information on the benefits of physical activity for those with disabilities.
