  • According to the new CDC Vital Signsreport, nearly half of adults with disabilities get no aerobic physical activity—an important health behavior to help avoid and manage many chronic diseases.
  • Adults aged 18–64 years who have a disability and get no aerobic physical activity are 50% more likely to have heart disease, stroke, diabetes, or cancer than those who get the recommended amount of physical activity.
  • Doctors and other health professionals can use CDC’s physical activity and disabilities resources page to recommend physical activity among adults with disabilities.
