There are plenty of reasons for everyone to exercise regularly, but for the spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) community, exercise has potential benefits in supporting greater muscle strength and motor function. With many still at home due to the ongoing pandemic, Cure SMA is pleased to share a new Physical Therapy Webinar Series, sponsored by Biogen and The Luke 18:1 Foundation.

These educational webinars will be led by licensed physical therapists who are experienced in providing care for both adults and children with SMA. These experts will discuss a wide variety of home exercises during two, 1-hour webinars dedicated to adults with SMA and children with SMA, respectively.

Upon registration, attendees will be mailed a resistance band set (limit 1 per individual with SMA in a household, maximum 3 per household). We will then show how this versatile item can be used to strengthen muscles through a variety of both passive and active movements.
