Physical activity programming: An opportunity to promote health and well-being among military vetera

from Society of Behavioral Medicine

The benefits of regular physical activity (i.e. sport, exercise, and recreation) for mental and physical health are well-substantiated. Military personnel are generally more physically active than civilians; however, the transition to life as a veteran is characterized by a steep drop in physical activity, and a sharp rise in obesity and related health conditions. Veterans may also bear physical (e.g., chronic pain, traumatic brain injury) and psychological injuries (e.g., post-traumatic stress, depression) stemming from their service, which can contribute to isolation and poor health. Physical activity promotion among veterans, particularly those with physical limitations and/or mental health conditions, represents an opportunity to promote holistic well-being. more
