Exercising with MS


Exercising with MS for a Better Life

Exercise has been shown to help improve many of the symptoms MS patients experience, but only if that exercise is being done safely.

Always have water nearby to stay hydrated and consider exercises that allow you to avoid a flare-up caused by your heat sensitivity. Swimming can be a great exercise, since you can go to an indoor pool all year round and the water will keep you naturally cool. And it’s easy to take a break if you’re feeling tired – just float and relax for a while.

Whatever exercise you choose, don’t push yourself too hard. If you feel like you’re going to be sick or if something starts hurting, stop immediately, rest, and get some water.
