Adapted Sports

Sports and recreation can be an important part of living a full life, but an injury or illness may leave some people thinking they will be stuck on the sidelines.

However, programs in “adapted sports” right here in Maryland offer opportunities for people to stay in the game whether through adapted golf and dance to wheelchair rugby and basketball. In this interview, Mike Henley and Pam Cauley of the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute will discuss the physical and emotional benefits of adapted sports.

Do you have a question about adapted sports? Send us your question via Twitter @MPTNews #yourhealth. Then watch Direct Connection on August 25 at 7:30 p.m. to see if we use your question on the show.

Guests:

Mike Henley

Therapeutic Recreational Specialist and Adapted Wheelchair Basketball Clinic Coordinator

University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute

And

Pam Cauley

Sr. Therapeutic Recreational Specialist and Adapted Golf Program Coordinator

University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute
