CHALLENGES IN SPORTS AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AMONG STUDENTS WITH POOR HEALTH CONDITIONS AT SECONDARY SCHOOL LEVEL
Health issues such as pulmonary diseases like chest infection, asthma, tuberculosis, and neurological diseases like migraine are among the health problems that many students face. These health conditions have a negative impact on their school performance. While some students are able to perform well academically despite these risks, they are less fortunate to get benefits of sports and other physical activities in the schools due to their poor health conditions. Everyone's health, mobility, and disease progression are slowed when they engage in regular physical activity, but this is especially true for persons with poor health conditions or disabilities.
However, despite this, the degree of physical activity among people with poor health conditions is low. Children with poor health conditions are the primary focus of this study in order to gain a better understanding of the factors that influence healthful physical activity participation. Convenience sampling was used to select a sample of 150 students with poor health conditions of secondary schools’ level from Punjab, Pakistan. Questionnaire was used to collect data for this study. Descriptive and inferential stat methods were used to analyze data.
