Plan Your Outdoor Adventures With MS
Sunshine, fresh air, beautiful views -- there’s a lot to love about the outdoors. And so many ways to enjoy it, from hiking a mountain trail to gardening in your backyard. You don’t have to give it up because of MS. A little planning and the right tools can help you enjoy yourself while you stay safe and comfortable.
Swimming and water aerobics are excellent workouts for people with MS. The water supports your body and makes it easier to move. It also provides resistance, which will strengthen your muscles. Plus, you’re much less likely to overheat when your heart rate starts to climb. If the pool is heated, check the temperature to make sure it’s not too hot. A range of 80-84 degrees is ideal.
