Long Term Health Conditions
Physical activity benefits people living with long-term health conditions.
Sometimes known as a Chronic Health Condition, a long-term health condition can be defined as a condition that cannot be cured but can be managed with support and a care plan in place.
Living with long-term health conditions can be difficult and individuals may find the thought of participating in physical activity daunting due to the risk of pain and/or symptoms worsening. However, research indicates that exercise and physical activity can actually help to lessen the impact of some of the symptoms.
The following long-term health conditions can be supported with physical activity:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Mental health difficulties
We Are Undefeatable
We are Undefeatable is a nationwide movement supporting people with long-term health conditions to 'get moving' in ways suited to their ability and condition.
