Exercise

Why isn't there any comments on exercise? Us MS sufferers are supposed to exercise. It can improve our fitness, endurance, and strength in our arms and legs. Those are my weak points now, so I definitely do exercises for them.

  1. Hi vvxjr9! We actually have several articles on exercise, but you have to search them in our archives. This is a list of results I got when I put the word "exercise" in the Search box at the upper left corner of the page: https://multiplesclerosis.net/search?s=exercise. You can click on any of those headings to access the article. We could always use more articles though since people need different exercises, depending on the progression of their MS. So please let us know if you don't find what you are looking for. Best of all wishes! - Lori (Team Member)

  2. Hi , I agree that exercise is very important and can improve fitness, endurance, and strength. It's hard to know what to recommend for exercise as each of us are different. When I engaged in physical therapy, I was almost surprised at what counted as exercise. Sometimes something as simple as sitting on a balance ball and reaching for something counted as exercise. It certainly worked core strength but to a healthy observer, it probably didn't look like much.

    What are some of the things you do to focus on your weak points? What types of exercises do you like to do and find most helpful?

    Best, Lisa

    1. Lisa, I certainly agree about the part of PT that they think and count as exercise. I don't, we need to really strength our core and then we can focus on our weak issues and exercise to strength them. I am participating in my 7th PT and over the years I have included a lot of the exercises I was taught in my PT, but also focus on strengthening areas like my arms or legs.

      1. That's wonderful that you workout regularly, @vvxjr9. That has got to help your overall health. I hope you continue to remain strong. Thanks for sharing and encouraging others. Best wishes! - Lori (Team Member)
