Several studies have proven that, in many chronic diseases, the disabling process is aggravated by a sedentary lifestyle; this causes also new deseases, functional limitations and additional disabilities. In scientific literature there is a sufficient amount of data that leads to the conclusion that in many chronic diseases this vicious circle can be corrected with appropriate programs of regular physical activity.
