Description
A specially-designed, easy-to-follow program to feel better and improve your quality of life.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a devastating disease that damages the central nervous system. It affects nearly 400,000 Americans with daily fatigue, loss of coordination and balance, and muscle spasms or spasticity-and it has no cure. Now, research shows that MS symptoms can be reduced through exercise, making living with MS a little easier. "Exercises for Multiple Sclerosis" tells you how to improve your daily symptoms, especially fatigue and mobility.
Written by a licensed postrehabilitation specialist who has worked extensively with MS patients, "Exercises for Multiple Sclerosis" provides a tested program. An essential reference for anyone who suffers from MS, it will show you:
- How daily exercise can help reduce your fatigue
- How to increase physical strength while decreasing spasticity
- How to compensate for loss of balance and coordination while walking
- Why medical treatments are just not enough
If you or someone you know suffers from MS, you need this book. With an easy-to-follow, simple workout designed to adapt to many energy levels, "Exercises for Multiple Sclerosis" will help MS sufferers to achieve a healthier, happier, more productive life.
