Multiple sclerosis and Physiotherpay
There is a strong body of evidence demonstrating that exercise used as part of a rehabilitation programme can increase activity and improve the health and well-being of people with MS.
In addition there is an emerging body of evidence to say that physiotherapists, as part of a specialist neuro rehab service, have a key role in managing specific symptoms of MS including pain, spasticity and the prevention of secondary complications such as contracture.
Results from randomised controlled clinical trials of exercise programmes in MS have demonstrated benefits in muscle strength, cardiovascular fitness, aerobic thresholds and activity levels and functional improvements, such as walking ability.
Exercise is generally highly valued by patients who report improvements in mood and quality of life.
