Recreational Sports

MD patients can also take part in recreational sports such as skiing with specially designed skis and equipment for those with impaired leg strength and balance issues. Wheelchair hockey is another popular sport that allow MD patients to participate via different types of hockey sticks that take into account the individual's upper body capabilities. These are just a few of the sports along with wheelchair rugby, tennis and bowling that MD patients can enjoy.

Even while the social and emotional aspect of these activities shouldn’t be discounted, the take away from MD patients participating is that while they do something that they love, they’re also using exercise to keep their bodies in a healthier state for as long as they can.
