Are you an active duty wounded, ill, or injured service member looking for an adaptive reconditioning opportunity?
The Military Adaptive Sports Program (MASP) provides reconditioning activities and competitive athletic opportunities to all wounded, ill, and injured service members to improve their physical and mental quality of life throughout the continuum of recovery and transition.
This program is designed to enhance recovery by engaging wounded, ill, and injured service members early in individualized physical and cognitive activities outside of traditional therapy settings. The program hopes to inspire recovery and physical fitness and encourage new opportunities for growth and achievement. The benefits of physical activity for injured service members include reduced stress, increased quality of life, lower blood pressure, weight management, and enhancement of the rehabilitative process.
Through this program, service members also have access to the Healing Arts, which support both physical and psychological recovery and rehabilitation from visible and invisible wounds of war including traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and others. See here for additional Healing Arts resources through the NRD.
