Exercises for MS symptoms

Research tells us exercise can help you manage common MS symptoms, like fatigue, muscle spasms or balance.

So we've worked with neurophysiotherapist Rachel and Pilates instructor Beth to create a series of videos tailored to symptoms you've told us you need help with most. You can do them anywhere - even while waiting for the kettle to boil!

The videos will take you through a series of movements and postures you’ll be able to do at home. They’re suitable for most mobility levels.

You don’t need to use any special equipment and you don’t have to wear special clothing.
