I just read an interesting article regarding a survey of how MS
patients warrior’s perceive diet, exercise and drug treatments. It shows weight training as the least cited exercise routine among MSers.
At first I was really surprised by this statistic until I got to thinking about it a little more. Everyone’s MS is different and everyone has different abilities, yet I wonder how many think that it is impossible. I just KNOW there is a way to modify and substitute exercises to meet the abilities of each individual.
As the article states there are multiple benefits to weight training. Maintaining muscle tone will help reduce weakness, improve strength, decrease fatigue and depression.
A strong body is a strong mind.
I hope that bottom bar on that graph grows and I look forward to having a part in helping others find their abilities.
