Healthy Joints Initiative
HEMOPHILIA FOUNDATION OF MARYLAND - 2022 JOINT HEALTH INITIATIVE
It is important for individuals with bleeding disorders to participate in some form of physical activity. Being physically active helps to strengthen one’s muscles, bones, and joints. One of the many benefits of having a strong, healthy body can be a reduction in the number of joint bleeding episodes an individual might experience.
HFM provides grant funding for bleeding disorder patients to enroll in physical activities such as swimming, yoga, golf, etc.
