So end of a Tuesday, let's talk about a brief section of amputee rehabilitation, and that's the exercise group.
Nearly everyday an exercise group is run by the rehab assistants , which I sometimes assist with, if one of them is away, this always looks enjoyable for the amputees and in addition to doing strengthening exercises such as squatting and bridging, a wide variety of sports are used such as seated volleyball, wheelchair tennis and even darts! 

I think it really helps patients feel better about their situation and realise they won't be confined to their wheel chair all the time!

Exercise makes everyone feel better about their life and it's no different for amputees, Whenever I'm irritated or annoyed a good hour in the pool just takes it all away and in exam periods allowed me to focus and relax. Exercise is good in every way!
