Synopsis:
Physical disability is an impairment or long-term loss in a person's body functions that affect stamina, mobility, or dexterity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 13.7% of adults in the United States live with mobility issues. The CDC also reports that 2 in 5 adults aged 65 years and older have a disability. Rehabilitation helps people with disabilities to recover and live a normal life through training. It provides tools needed to attain independence and self- determination. Physical Disability and Rehabilitation, First Edition, provides an overview of the types of disability that limit an individual's physical functioning, mobility, dexterity, and stamina, either as a structural or functional impairment. The characteristics of specific physical disability are outlined and examples of the ways in which physical disability affects individuals-including physical and motor disability, and activity and participation restrictions- are explained, along with information on how to find government and local disability programs and resources.
