Physical Activity Guidelines for Adults with Spinal Cord Injury
Resource by SCI Action Canada UBC
These guidelines provide a useful evidence-based resource for individuals living with spinal cord injury who are looking to improve their physical activity.
The guidelines have been developed by an international group of SCI scientists, people living with SCI, clinicians, and representatives from SCI organizations. These physical activity guidelines are based on the best scientific evidence available.
The guidelines have two levels: a starting level and an advanced level. Which level you choose depends on your goals, abilities and current fitness level. If you’re just starting a physical activity program, consider working up to the starting level and ideally work up to the advanced level. If you’re already physically active, you might want to begin with the advanced level.
