Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


Physical activity is associated with a myriad of health benefits relevant to adults who commonly receive rehabilitation. Unfortunately, the prescription for exercise and overall activity still continues to be overlooked, which is a missed opportunity because those receiving rehabilitation are most likely to benefit from the effects of physical activity. The purpose of this supplement is to fill this knowledge gap by featuring articles that examine the efficacy of physical activity, and describe mechanisms underlying changes in physical activity and how physical activity in rehabilitation populations fits within broader medical and public health frameworks.
