Research has shown that, for people living with MS, regular exercise and physical activity can improve their quality of life while helping to manage MS symptoms.
But research has also shown that people living with MS tend to be less active than people in the general population. In response, the National MS Society convened a group of experts to develop fact-based guidance for promoting exercise and lifestyle physical activity for all people with MS, regardless of their ability level.
Joining me to talk about these exercise recommendations along with some of the real benefits that exercise produces for people living with MS is Dr. Nora Fritz, a board-certified Neurologic Physical Therapist and an Assistant Professor in the Physical Therapy Program in the Department of Health Care Sciences and Department of Neurology at Wayne State University School of Medicine, where she's also the Director of the Neuroimaging and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory.
