Adaptive Exercises

by tipps2016

The following YouTube channel has several videos highlighting some of the ways to modify traditional exercises for people with all kinds of disabilities. Physical activity is one of the most important things to incorporate into a healthy lifestyle to prevent a future stroke, however, the task of learning how to workout with a disability can be daunting. Start small with simple exercises such as raising your arms above your head or walking around the block and don’t be afraid to get creative with your movements. One of the best things about exercise is that it can be modified to meet anyone’s needs. Any movement is better than no movement so grab a water bottle and do what you can!
