The Link Between Exercise and Multiple Sclerosis

Final remarks by the authors

Final remarks by the authors

Thomas Edwards and Lara A. Pilutt came to the rather obvious conclusion that more research is necessary. However, they remain optimistic, and describe the current research as promising in regards to a prognosis of people with multiple sclerosis and severe mobility disability.

They point out that there is currently a lack of effective and long-term therapies for people with worsening multiple-sclerosis-related mobility impairment. They think that exercise strategies, especially adapted exercise modalities, may be an effective tool in the arsenal combating neurodegeneration.

Further research may optimize these new exercise strategies and make them even more effective for people with multiple sclerosis.
