Exercise may seem difficult to perform at times, but even the smallest bit can improve a variety of MS conditions, most importantly helping you better complete daily activities.
Taking a few minutes every day to move the body can increase energy, range of motion, manage spasticity and help with muscle atrophy.
Even a little bit of activity can help with depression, balance and agility. Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. The best thing you can do is to try a variety of activities to find the best fit.
Because heat can exacerbate MS symptoms, choose activities where you stay cool (swimming, air-conditioned workout areas, early morning). There are also some great cool-vest on the market.
Whichever activity you choose, be sure to start slow, stretch and drink plenty of water. Most importantly, listen to your body.
