Before your child starts to do more exercises than normal, we suggest getting an exercise test to see how well your child’s lungs and heart are working. This test tells the doctors and exercise physiologist:
- How hard your child can safely exercise
- If there are any underlying health conditions that are only present during exercise
- Your child’s level of fitness
For more information about the exercise test, talk to your doctor or exercise physiologist. After your child does an exercise test, the exercise physiologist will help you and your child start an appropriate exercise program and will keep track of your child’s progress.
