The Multiple Sclerosis Trust also state that moderate exercise has been shown to improve strength, mobility and bowel and bladder function for people with mild to moderate MS. Exercise is also helpful in helping maintain a healthy weight. This reduces patients chances of acquiring co-morbidities, and can also reduce the impact of some MS symptoms, such as pain and fatigue.
The Multiple Sclerosis Trust have also developed some excellent resources that can help you to guide and support patients. These include building exercise routines, choosing the right exercise as well as ‘Move It For MS’ exercise videos.
