Staying active at home - customized to your condition

You probably know you need to keep active.  But if you're like most people, the pandemic has dramatically changed your options for fitness activities.  The need to physically distance means home-based activities may be your only option right now.

Depending on what you were doing before, this could mean you need to change your habits, try something new, or adapt an activity you previously enjoyed.  And these changes can difficult.  Plus, if you have a health condition you may not know what changes are safe for you, or best for your particular condition(s).  

We're therefore excited to share a new resource: the University of Manitoba has just published a handy guide for staying active at home - customized for people with health conditions.  These conditions include arthritis, cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure/hypertension, mental health, strokes, Multiple Sclerosis, osteoporosis, Parkinson's Disease, pregnancy, and respiratory conditions. 

We encourage you to take a look at the resource.  And if you have any further questions on how to customize physical activity to your particular condition, our highly-trained physiotherapists would be happy to develop an exercise program customized especially for you.
