Adapting Exercises for MS
Adapting Exercises for MS: A Demonstration
Exercises for multiple sclerosis are best done within the box of your body so that you can move comfortably. The exercises that you’re able to do will depend on how severe your symptoms are, but regardless of your level of mobility, you can adapt exercises to work for you.
You may want to get help from a physiotherapist. If you do this, keep in mind the activities that you are currently able to do but would like to do with more ease – this is a good place to start.
Exercising with MS can be difficult, but keep at it. You’ll notice an increase in your level of mobility, and likely your mood, as well. As you start to build muscle, you will be able to do additional exercises.
