Aerobic and strength exercise can improve your overall health, as well as reduce fatigue and improve bladder and bowel function, strength, balance, mobility and mood.
To achieve fitness benefits, adults with MS aged 18 to 64 who have mild to moderate disability, should get at least:
30 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity TWICE a week
Strength training exercises for major muscle groups TWICE a week
Meeting these guidelines may help to reduce fatigue, improve mobility and enhance elements of health-related quality of life.
Talk to a healthcare professional about what types and amounts of physical activity are appropriate for you.
While many special diets have been proposed for people with MS, none have been proven to prevent MS or affect the way it may develop.
