Everyone deserves to play sports, even those who are not so great at athletics and sports. There is something beneficial in sports for every person regardless of their limitations or capabilities. While many people assume that sports are only for the healthy, they are for everyone, even the disabled. Although some modifications may be made to the sport for a disabled person to play, there isn't any reason why someone in a wheel chair or someone who just has physical limitations shouldn't be allowed to have some fun, and enjoy the thrill of competing.
Sports are first and foremost a great way to stay in shape. Even for those with disabilities, sports provide an opportunity to get moving, increase blood circulation, and really do your body a favor. Sometimes, when you have a disability it's easy to create reasons why you shouldn't or don't need to take part in sports and exercise, but exercise can be even more important to someone who has a disability.
If you believe that your disability will hold you back from truly participating in sports, there are plenty of opportunities for the disabled to play in situations that are fair to all the players. There are many leagues for those who are a bit disabled to join, so why not get involved in one of these programs so that you'll fit in, and you can take part in all of the sports that you like without feeling like you are the odd man out.
Exercise can be a great source of motivation for those who are disabled. If someone is newly disabled it's not uncommon for them to become depressed, due to the fact that they are unable to participate in a sport they love. If you are disabled and you liked sports before your injury or accident, you should still try to play the sports. Even if you think you cannot move around like you used to, there is no reason not to play. Everyone can enjoy sports, even those with various types of disabilities.
The bottom line is that there is a sport out there for everyone despite his or her abilities or physical limitations. A disability shouldn't keep you from playing and enjoying the sports that you've always enjoyed. In fact, when you play sports it may help you recover from your disability, it'll lift your spirits and remind you that there is so much you can do even when you have limitations.
