YMCA Begins Multiple Sclerosis Exercise Program

Final thoughts

Those suffering from multiple sclerosis should not let their physical disabilities prevent them from keeping an active lifestyle. Organizations like the YMCA or the National Multiple Sclerosis Society offer classes, instructors, and videos for persons with multiple sclerosis trying to exercise. There are also a variety of ways in which MS patients can exercise, which means you don't have to stick with one routine or style. Exercising frequently will help prevent joint pain and stiffness, and could even help the body fight off MS attacks and relapses. Remember that you should discuss any fitness program with your doctor or physical therapist before attempting any exercises.
