You worked hard to keep fit before your spinal cord injury. Or maybe you weren’t as active as you would have liked, but now have the time and desire to work up a sweat. The good news is that there are still many ways to stay active. With our exercise recommendations for individuals with a spinal cord injury, sports and exercise can still be a big part of your life.

Before your injury, you may have participated in a sport or exercise activity based on what you enjoy and your unique talents – your fitness and sports “sweet spot”, if you will. The need to find that ideal activity is no different after a spinal cord injury. Once you find the best sport for you – something you enjoy and can participate in consistently to keep you fit – it can be a real boost to your quality of life.
