Using exercise and physical therapy for recovery from the effects of MS, and for maintaining physical function.

MS and Martial Arts

I was just diagnosed and consider myself lucky. My symptoms are not super bad. Just leg numbness, balance issues, and loss of some coordination.

I was wondering if anyone here practices martial arts and what they might recommend.
I started a year ago, and intend to continue.

I am finding that the constant work on spinning kicking, and 3 plane movement has helped.

physical therapist in your home

Does anyone have a physical therapist that comes to your home on a regular basis? I can't go to a facility on a regular basis. I only have my husband to rely on and he can't keep missing work like that. Explaining that to doctors is like speaking a foreign language. I can't be unique in that department. I need someone to help me get in position to exercise. I spend all my time setting ...

Biking with MS

Do you have MS and still love to ride your bicycle? I do, but I go slower and not as far now and my balance is a bit off so I have to be extra careful – but I won’t give it up yet. I’m not ready for a tricycle or a handcycle (although they are kind of cool). I tried a stationary exercise system with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) applied to my arms and ...

magnesium loss and exercise

Update on the relationship between magnesium and exercise. Nielsen & Lukaski 2006
Magnesium is involved in numerous processes that affect muscle function including oxygen uptake, energy production and electrolyte balance. Thus, the relationship between magnesium status and exercise has received significant research attention. This research has shown that exercise induces a redistribution of magnesium in the body to accommodate metabolic needs. There is evidence that marginal magnesium deficiency impairs exercise performance and amplifies the ...

Rubber legs?


I spent about an hour walking in the pool today. (First time in ages)
I also have hip dysplasia, so any high impact is out.
My legs felt fine in the pool, yet when I got out, they felt like rubber, and I had zero balance.
Is it possible I spent too long in the pool? I feel fine now, so what gives?
Any ideas?

Pushing it just about right (when to stop)

Hi everyone,
I'm new around here (in about a week I should get results if I have MS or it was just an episode of ADEM). I have been a long-distance runner for past 7 years (not a professional one, but still... liked running). Almost two months ago I've had a severe attack of demyalinisation (I was like a plant for three days (quadriparesis), some double vision for a week, urinary problems, etc), and the ...
