Active Therapies Keep MS Patients Doing What They Love – The Seattle Times

For many, the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease of the nervous system that disrupts the flow of information in the brain and the body, means they have to limit their activities. While the cases and symptoms are unpredictable and varied, evidence has shown that exercise and movement slows the progression of the disease. 

The disease makes movement more difficult but also more important than ever. As a result, treatment often involves physical and occupational therapies that keep patients moving. However, doctors are finding that treatment doesn’t have to be confined to the gym with its weights, elastic bands and three sets of ten. It doesn’t have to be limited to repetitive movement. Treatment can involve going outside and having fun or doing things patients have always wanted to do – like skiing or skydiving.
