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


So I know that I have been hit or miss on the forums here, honestly it is my fault, and I have no one to blame but myself. But I just wanted to share a little story to some of those and hopefully give some of those who need a little encouragement.

About six months ago (January) I switched neurologists and got weighed I am 5'6''male, and this was the most that I have ...

Running with MS

I received my MS diagnosis in Nov 2009- almost exactly two months to the date of running my second marathon. I was looking into running with MS and came across pretty much nothing. Is there anyone out there that still runs?

Currently I am only running 10 miles a week after my big attack in Oct, but the plan is to try and run the Akron Marathon again this year (it is in Sept). My ...

is Bungee Jumping dangerous for MS ?

I've diagnosed with MS last year and now I'm symptom-free and wanna Jump from a 40 meter bungee. Is this very dangerous for me? Does it increase the risk of another attack? Is there any previous cases of relapse due to jumping stress?
Thank you so much in advance.

Denver CO

Does anyone know of any physical trainers /therapists in Denver who are worth a darn? I worked with a girl named Katherine here, but I need something a bit more. I feel bad not wanting to use her, but right now I need someone who can incorporate a cardio, weight training, and neurological acuity regimen.

I have no clue where to start looking so I figured here would be a good place to start.

Aspiring fitness competitor w/MS looking for ideas

Hi everyone!
In 2003, prior to my diagnosis(in 1/05), I competed in fitness. Now I have decided that while I am doing ok I want to do one more, just in case I cannot in the future. I am having difficulty with the training. Unlike before, I have to deal with the side effects of the medication (avonex), try to lose body fat w/o raising core temp, space out my workouts, try to follow a ...

The local chapter of the MS society here has started a free weekly pilates class and it is wonderful. Everyone in the class has MS and so not everyone can do the full version of each exercise, but everyone does what they can. I enjoy it so much more than yoga, where leg spasticity poses frequent problems. Encourage your local MS society chapter to sponsor a class and then support it! I know I feel ...

Exercise has changed my life!

I started exercising on January 2, 2007. I have always made excuses...I don't feel good....I can't, I'm too body hurts...I'm too dizzy, etc. I decided that I needed to strengthen my body and the weight loss would also help me feel better. I was also worried about Type 2 diabetes....I don't need another disease!

I use the weight resistance machines for about 45 minutes and walk on the treadmill for about 30 minutes...faithfully, daily. ...
