Exercises for people MS

Posted on April 3, 2013. Filed under: Balance-Based Torso-Weighting, Exercise class, Multiple Sclerosis Treatment |

I read the LinkedIn Rehabilitation Medicine comments. Today there was one on Exercise For People With MS. Exercise should be tailored to your specific needs based on an evaluation performed by a rehab specialist. It should include tests and measures of strength, range of motion, balance, and endurance among others. Core stability of the trunk is essential and many of my patients have improved their ability with Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates. They have also been able to accomplish greater challenges wearing the BalanceWear devices. However, because of the fatigue that people with MS experience the exercise should be targeted to those that will accomplish the most. That being said there was a link in the discussion that I will share from the MS trust.
