Exercise Guidelines for People with Multiple Sclerosis
This month, I wanted to share some information on exercise recommendations for adults with Multiple Sclerosis. I think this quote really captures the essence of exercise implications on MS.
“Although exercise prescription is gaining favour as a therapeutic strategy to minimize the loss of functional capacity in chronic diseases, it remains under-utilized as an intervention strategy in the MS population. However, a growing number of studies indicate that exercise in patients with mild-to-moderate MS provides similar fitness and psychological benefits as it does in healthy controls.” (White & Dressendorfer, 2004).
