It may be difficult for MS patients to exercise, but purposeful movement is helpful for disease management. Aerobic exercise has been proven to improve cardiovascular fitness, strength, bladder and bowel function, fatigue and depression, positive attitude, and participation in social activities. It is important for people with MS to consult with their physician about the most appropriate type of exercise for their individual ability and capacity. Each period of exercise should be timed to prevent excessive fatigue. Among the many activities MS patients should try are: gardening, household chores, cooking, yoga, adaptive tai chi, and aquatic exercises.
