What are Physical Disabilities?
Physical Disabilities are physical or motor impairments affect a person's "mobility, physical capacity, stamina, or dexterity" (taken from Achieve Australia https://achieveaustralia.org.au/disability-services/physical-disability/). These can be caused by hereditary or congenital conditions like multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy or acquired through injuries such as spinal or brain trauma; some people with physical disabilities may use wheelchairs, canes, or prosthetic limbs while some may have difficulty with fine motor skills because of shaking or altered muscle tone.
