Exercise your right to better health.

Having epilepsy increases your risk of developing high blood pressure and prediabetes. But with regular exercise, you can help manage those health problems.

And it may even reduce the frequency of seizures, based on preliminary research. Try these exercises to get on track toward better overall health.
