How does Adaptive Cycling Improve a Disabled Veterans quality
Many Veterans in general isolate because of issues with PTSD and Mobility, its just too stressful. Adaptive Cycling provides much needed exercise and can be very therapeutic both for physical and psychological ailments “For me personally before I started riding almost never left my home except to go for groceries or to a Dr appointment however Adaptive Cycling provided me a much needed active outlet and incentive to get out, Riding along the Bosque Trails is both relaxing and challenging, It is the best therapy I’ve had in 18 years.” -Troy Shelby-
