Spinal Cord Injury exercise guidelines video launched

Senior Patient in Wheelchair at Rehabilitation

The Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport (PHC) has developed a new video to help people with spinal cord injury (SCI) to better engage in meaningful physical activity and take ownership of their health.

The video provides an introduction to physical activity, including tips on where to find exercise opportunities, how to start, plan and set goals, and where to find social support throughout the process.

Conducted in the context of the reduced physical capacity and increased chronic disease risk in persons with SCI, the video informs viewers how regular activity is key; not only to prevent chronic disease, but also to maintain the ability to engage in activities of daily life.
