Memorial Healthcare System's Adaptive Sports Expo Encourages Physically Challenged To Go Beyond Perceived Limitations
Date:3/31/2015

Hollywood, Florida (PRWEB) March 31, 2015

Many people, including the ones with physical challenges, assume that activities like basketball, rock climbing, and cycling are only for able-bodied participants.

A new program called Adaptive Sports at Memorial Rehabilitation Institute aims to change that thinking.

The program, part of the Memorial Healthcare System, will host an Adaptive Sports Expo on Saturday, April 11 (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) at Memorial Regional Hospital South in Hollywood.

The event will showcase a wide variety of sports and exercises beneficial to the physical and mental health of those who have suffered strokes, lost the use of limbs, or are coping with traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.

There will also be motivational speakers that have overcome disabilities, vendors that cater to the physically challenged, and opportunities to participate in adaptive sports.

“Our theme is ‘Go Beyond’ and it’s what we preach each day to those working to overcome serious health issues at our facility,” said Ray Shipman, a former NFL player and manager of the Adaptive Sports Program at Memorial Rehabilitation Institute at Memorial Regional Hospital South.

“Go beyond what you think you’re capable of or limitations others place on you, and don’t let your current physical situation dictate the quality of your life,” he said.

There is no charge to attend or participate in the expo, which takes place on the campus of Memorial Regional Hospital South (3600 Washington Street, Hollywood).

In addition to the outdoor activities, there will also be a panel discussion and presentations by medical experts inside the hospital’s auditorium.

The Memorial Rehabilitation Institute offers world-class, comprehensive, inpatient rehabilitation services all under one roof at Memorial Regional Hospital South. Its multidisciplinary team of certified rehabilitation professionals works together with patients and families to design personal treatment plans for numerous conditions at every level of care, including inpatient hospitalization, acute rehabilitation, transitional housing, outpatient treatment, and home healthcare.
