Many HCM Patients Physically Inactive

According to a recent study of HCM patients, more than half of the patients surveyed did not participate in adequate physical activity due to complaints of pain, injury and disability.

The takeaway from this study is that for those with HCM, physical activity should be encouraged to the extent possible for each patient.
