Physical or “motor” disabilities are weakness and limitations of muscular control. These include involuntary movements (including tremors), lack of coordination, paralysis, limitations of sensation, joint disorders (such as arthritis), pain that impedes movement, missing limbs, and more. It is estimated that more than 8.5 millions Americans experience a physical disability.
