Multiple Sclerosis and Exercise


Click here to receive MS news via e-mail

Exercise can help ease the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, but it's important to be careful if you want your workouts to be successful. The most important thing to remember is to not overdo it.
No doubt you’ve heard the sayings "no pain, no gain" or "feel the burn," but that’s not good advice when you have MS. Do too much, and you can end up straining your muscles, increasing pain, and putting too much stress on your body and your mind. Never exercise to the point of fatigue.
Check with your doctor before you start any fitness program. He may make recommendations about:
  • The types of exercise that are best for you and those you should avoid. The right moves depend on your symptoms, fitness level, and overall health.
  • How long and intense your workouts should be
  • Any physical limitations for your routines
  • Other professionals, such as a physical therapist, who can help you build a personal exercise program that meets your needs
