What Exercises Help

Reduce the Symptoms of

Multiple Sclerosis?

MS Exercise - a Multiple Sclerosis alternative:

Can exercise be used as a Multiple Sclerosis treatment, with or without using prescription drugs, when searching for ways to reduce the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?

There are many different types of MS Exercise that can be done to help those of us with Multiple Sclerosis to find relief to our MS symptoms.  Intense MS physical therapy or using Multiple Sclerosis and exercise as a way of coaxing our bodies into redeveloping muscle strength and with stimulating neural pathways to help those of with MS to gradually start to function again.
* Balance Ball Exercises

There are many different types of Multiple Sclerosis exercises that can be used for those of us that have been given the Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis, which can help to reduce the frequency and severity of our symptoms of MS.

Too often, after we are given the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, we are treated like there is no hope for us of recovering what we have lost because of the often devastating effects of Multiple Sclerosis on causing Multiple Sclerosis damage to the nerves throughout our bodies.

MS attacks the nerves throughout our bodies and can result in scarring or MS demyelination or damage and removing of the myelin sheath along the spinal cord. Demyelination can also occur in the MS brain and to other nerves throughout the rest of the body.  MS can also cause damage to the membranes through out the body, including the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB), which surrounds and protects the brain, in addition to the membranes of the stomach and the intestines of the digestive tract.  Each Multiple Sclerosis exercise that you do can help your body improve in some way or another.

Multiple Sclerosis Exercises can include:

* Rebounder Exercises

* Stretch Band Exercises

* Hand weights

* Stretching Exercises

* Step Exercises

* Balancing Exercises

as well as,

Pilates

* Qi Gong

* Tai Chi

* Yoga

and use of various types of exercise equipment.

If your condition of MS is more severe, some of the more gentle exercises, like MS qi gong, MS tai chi or like exercises that are included along with yoga for Multiple Sclerosis can benefit, even though even the simpler exercises can still be very challenging or difficult to do, depending on your level of disability because of MS.

Choosing to do any of these types of exercises will help to reactivate and gradually improve your ability to function.  Gradually adding more exercises will help you to get to the point where you can also do more of other types of exercises. In the long term, doing this will help to speed up reducing your symptoms of MS and aid in gradually restoring more function to your body.

Even if your case of MS is more severe, you can still benefit from doing exercises of whatever kind that you can find a way for you to be able to do.  I have found that even with my initially severe case of MS, doing ANY exercises at all brings benefits to those of us that have any of the symptoms of MS.  Exercising can help those with MS by helping to improve balance, improve muscle strength, reduce Multiple Sclerosis spasticity, improve stamina,  increasing how well we can stand, as well as strengthening Multiple Sclerosis muscles (especially leg muscles), helping us to have the muscle and nerve function again that can help us be able to learn to allow those of us with Multiple Sclerosis walk again.

MS Exercises are not a "quick fix", but if the exercises are done consistently over a longer period of time, with increasing the number, duration and type of exercises that we are able to do, we will find that this can stimulate the muscles and the nerves to function better again, even if it has been a while since you were able to stand or walk because of more severe nerve damage that can be caused by Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis nerve damage can result from the scarring that results as MS attacks and demyelinates the nerves of the brain, the spinal cord and the nerves through out the rest of the body.

Healing Multiple Sclerosis nerve damage takes time, perseverance and giving the body what it needs for our bodies to be able to heal and repair itself.

To see improvements, it will taking starting out with small amounts of exercise -- whatever you can do -- and building up to being able to do more and more different types of exercises for us for longer periods of time for us to see an improvement in how well we can function, in spite of our initial set of symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, having reduced how much we could still do after we were diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis life

There are many alternative and natural ways that can help with reducing the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and help to restore more of our abilities to function, which MS had removed from our lives for a period of time.  In spite of Multiple Sclerosis entering our lives and disrupting how well we can function, often on a daily basis, this does not mean that we should give up living life to its fullest.  We also need to learn how to live life again and at the same time allow our bodies to have our permission to heal, restore and repair itself again.

For in the end, if we allow our bodies to do so, they will gladly do what they can to heal and repair themselves.  We need to do all that we can to give our bodies what they need for them to be able to heal, replenish and repair the parts of our lives that need to be restored again.  Attitude and hope are part of the key, for in the end our minds have amazing powers in their own right to help the body recover from trauma, nerve damage and other physical inadequacies.

Those of us, that have been given the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, can benefit in a major way with helping to reduce our symptoms of MS by changing our mind set and by reducing ms stress, reducing ms insomnia (through yoga breathing and other techniques) and learning to focus our minds on healing multiple sclerosis through various methods rather than resigning ourselves to being doomed by MS (visualization, guided imagery, meditation, yoga breath therapy and the like).

For in the end, if we are kind to our bodies and give our bodies what they need and are required for aiding our bodies as much as we can, our bodies will heal, repair and replenish from the nerve damage and other imbalances that Multiple Sclerosis has caused to our bodies and our overall health.
