How many times have you read about walking for exercise? The articles tell us to just get out there and walk. It’ll improve you circulation, your heart and lungs will be healthier, you’ll lose pounds and every part of you will benefit.
But what happens if you can’t walk? What happens to your body when you stop exercising because you’ve lost the movement in your legs, arms or more because of a spinal cord injury (SCI)?
After hearing David Ditor, associate professor of the Department of Kinesiology (the study of human movement) at Brock University, talk about the benefits of exercise on a body that won’t voluntarily move, I decided to go to Brock and take a look at what’s going on.
