How can exercise help with MS symptoms?

Research tells us exercise can help you manage multiple sclerosis symptoms, including fatigue, and problems with balance and walking. Exercising can also:

  • improve your mood
  • improve your overall health when your MS is mild
  • help you to stay as mobile and active as possible when your MS is more severe
  • decrease the risk of heart disease.
