Description

Regular exercise can make a big difference to the lifestyle and wellbeing of a person who has a dwarf condition. It helps to keep body weight under control, which is paramount in working towards a healthy lifestyle. Keeping weight off and regular exercise can prevent and delay the need for invasive surgery to stabilise back and joint problems.
