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

type of exercise and diet

I know it has not been proven but when I first experienced my first symptom and it gradually got worse over the 6-7 I have been dealing with MS. I gained a lot of weight in a short period of time 6 yrs ago. I read that up that ms can either cause extreme weight or loss gain.

Resistance Exercise and MS

A recent Pubmed article reports that heat sensitive individuals with MS may tolerate resistance forms of exercise better than endurance training:

This is so in my case. it's now been about 10 years since I was able to run or swim or bike, but I workout several times a week using resistance training with light free weights. I assume resistance training is a better fit for me because ...

Exercise prevents brain atrophy

For a Healthy Brain, Physical Exercise Trumps Mental Workout
http://www.livescience.com/24180-physic ... ealth.html

Regular physical exercise appears to protect the brain from shrinking, an otherwise natural process in old age that is associated with memory and thinking problems.

Extreme aerobic exercise and improvement in symptoms

Like many people with MS, I have been told by my physicians not to exercise to exhaustion. I did that anyway because I am a passionate amatuer athlete (marathons, triathlons, figure skating, skiing, etc.), and I was willing to pay the price to do what I love.
I have heard that patients with MS who get exhausted can have fatigue that wipes them out for hours or even days.
That's not what happened to me. ...

I did a brief test run a few days ago and found that the velcro strap on one of the bike's pedals is worn out and will not hold. I need ...

Does exercise have any effect on MS exacerbations?

I'm getting mixed opinions over the thoughts of MS and exercise. Somebody in my IRL group says that it made their exacerbations a bit more frequent. Others say it makes it less frequent and less severe. I run pretty much whenever I can (Along with some mild strength training 3 times a week), and it didn't really seem to have any effect whatsoever on the occurrences of my attacks, but it did lessen the severity ...
