For individuals with a physical disability such as the muscle weakness caused by LGMD, there are still many adaptive sports and recreation programs that can be enjoyed for health, wellness, leisure, social, and competition benefits.
Some of the adaptive sports for individuals with disabilities include horseback riding, golf, water skiing, parachuting, paddling, sailing, tennis, basketball, hockey, target shooting, archery, pool, fishing, hunting, table tennis, snorkeling, bowling, scuba, snow skiing, and many more.
Before participating in recreational activities or sports, check with your physical therapist or physician to be sure that you are healthy enough for exercise, and what amounts of physical activity are safe for you. A physical therapist can help you determine possible modifications to equipment, and advise which activities might be best for you.
Several organizations are devoted to providing people with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy sports and recreation of all types. You may want to check with your local rehab facility or contact a sports club or association to see if an adaptive program is available in your area.
