May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month

As a healthcare manufacturer of wound care products, we have first-hand knowledge of the detriments of chronic disease on the health of the skin. During May, the Office on Disease Prevention and Health Promotion celebrates National Physical Fitness and Sports Month to raise awareness of the potential for disease prevention through physical activity.

For people with chronic wounds, physical activity can be essential for healing. Exercise can increase blood flow, bring oxygen and nutrients essential for healing. This activity also reduces inflammation and improves immune function. (Note: Consult with a healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.)

“Our mission is to help people with chronic wounds live their lives to the fullest by providing innovative wound care solutions that promote healing and improve quality of life,” stated President of Human BioSciences Dr. Rohan Jain. “Paring the healing properties of our collagen wound care products with increased physical activity is a winning combination for wound healing.”

Physical activity is any form of movement that requires energy expenditure, such as walking, running, swimming, cycling, or dancing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that adults engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity per week, as well as muscle-strengthening activities at least two days a week.

Regular physical activity can reduce the risk of many chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. It can also help to lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of obesity. In addition, physical activity can also have mental health benefits, such as reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.

May is the beginning of spring with a natural inclination to get outside and do more. National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is an excellent opportunity to begin a new habit of regular exercise to reduce the risk of many chronic conditions, improve mental health, and support wound healing. Human BioSciences is committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle and innovative wound care solutions because all wounds matter.
