Best Answer

Some medical conditions that restrict the movement of a diver's arms and legs may in turn limit in-water mobility. Additionally, some people may experience pain or discomfort with the physical exertion of Scuba diving. Before training, a medical evaluation would be necassary. Such health issues would require individual evaluation by a physician before learning to dive.
