How do I manage my mobility impairment on a daily basis?

Mobility impairments are life-altering conditions. They may or may not be permanent, but they affect the way you live and require daily management. Physical therapy is a major part of dealing with limited mobility and is something that requires daily dedication to help recover strength and range of movement. Conditions like diabetes and stroke that can restrict mobility are affected by what you eat and drink, so commitment to a healthy lifestyle can help prevent future problems. Avoiding repetitive, stressful motion can help ease arthritis symptoms. You might also need to learn how to operate equipment that can help your mobility, from crutches to wheelchairs to prosthetic limbs and even specially designed computers.
