YMCA Begins Multiple Sclerosis Exercise Program

Recumbent bicycling

Upright bicycling can pose many challenges to those suffering from MS. It often is very straining on the back and core to try and keep the upright position needed for bicycling, which prevents many patients from riding at all. Recumbent bikes are a great alternative for MS patients because the reclining seat provides support for the back and core while still allowing for a good cardio and leg workout.
