Disability Training – MS Recovery (Multiple Sclerosis)

MS Recovery Can Strengthen Your Muscles with Safe, Reliable Exercise Routines

Living with multiple sclerosis (MS) is a challenge, and you out of all people know this all too well. But suffering from MS won’t impede your life any longer with the help of Multiple Sclerosis recovery.

All because of two main reasons:

  1. MS recovery helps with weight management – It helps you stay in shape and regain your locomotor functions.
  2. MS exercises release vital endorphins and boost your mood – You achieve the motivation you need to make visible progress.

 


Research Shows that a Structured Weight Resistance Program Is Essential for Positive MS Recovery

Combine it with pharmaceutical intervention and you’ve got a real chance of recovering limb movement.

Regular exercises for Multiple Sclerosis slow down the degenerative process. It holds true even if you might have days that are less active. 

Our specialists can help you regain your independence. With our functional pattern movement exercise program, we aim to reduce muscle atrophy. At the same time, we work hard to keep your muscles flexible and ready for action.

What Is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system (CNS). It is thought to be an immune-mediated disorder in which the immune system incorrectly attacks healthy tissue in the CNS.

What Are the Causes?MS Recovery

That is largely unknown. However, there are several risk factors:

  • Age (Commonly affects people between 15-60)
  • Sex (Women are more likely to develop MS than men)
  • Family history
  • Climate (MS is more predominant in zones with temperate climate)
  • Smoking

 

What Are the Symptoms?

Not sure if you’re suffering from MS? Here are some symptoms you might experience:

  • Paralysis
  • Numbness
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of balance
  • Poor coordination
  • Slurred speech
  • Tremors
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Blindness

 

It’s important to understand that these issues can come and go. They can also persist and worsen over time.

One last thing: Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50. However, individuals as young as 2 and as old as 75 have developed MS as well.


How Can We Help Speed up Your MS Recovery?

Studies show that a six-month Multiple Sclerosis exercise program can help you regain mobility. In some cases, more than six months could be necessary.

Still, we do our best to avoid that. That’s why we base our program on resistance training and robotic gait training. They are both essential components of our research-based training program.

Our staff knows how to guide clients with disabilities through our C.A.S.T® program (Comprehensive Activity-Based Strength Training). The program in question is designed to meet specific needs.

Plus, the MS recovery program can be adjusted according to how you’re feeling each day.

This way, you set your own pace for your recovery. You’ll always feel in control, and this will motivate you to work hard to regain your independence.
