World Hemophilia Day raises awareness, dispels misconceptions



    MONTREAL, April 15 /CNW Telbec/ - As organizations around the world plan
activities to mark World Hemophilia Day on April 17, the theme adopted this
year by the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is simple but important:
exercise is vital to good health and it's no different for people with
hemophilia than it is for anyone else.
    Hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder characterized by prolonged
or spontaneous bleeding, especially into the muscles, joints or internal
organs. Contrary to a common misconception though, regular exercise is key to
maintaining a healthy lifestyle for children and adults with hemophilia.
    To highlight the important role of physical therapy as part of
comprehensive care for hemophilia, the WFH has adopted the slogan "Improve
Your Life!" for World Hemophilia Day 2007. Read more at:
