Have Down's syndrome daughter, who is 44. Has been diagnosed

Customer Question

Have Down's syndrome daughter, who is 44. Has been diagnosed with peripheral neurology but I haven't received any kind of treatment especially when she is in pain. Her neurologist wants her to get a sleep study machine and so does her ENT. This will be done but I don't know what exercise to give her or anything. She is morbidly obese.
