Physical Activity and Long Term Conditions

In the UK, 1 in 4 people (15 million) have at least one long term health condition. What's more, those living with long term health conditions are twice as likely to be inactive, even though there is lots of evidence that increased activity can actually help in the management of many long term health conditions.

The pages below provide information about some common types of long term conditions, how exercise can help with the treatment and prevention of these and what kinds of exercise are best for different conditions.
