Parisa Najafia, Mehrzad Moghadasib, ,

Highlights

•The effect of 8-week yoga training on ACTH and cortisol level in female patients with Multiple Sclerosis were studied.
•After 8 weeks Yoga training, plasma ACTH level in the exercise group has significant increase in comparison to control group.
•After 8 weeks Yoga training, plasma cortisol level in the exercise group has significant decrease compared to control group.
•No significant change in body fat percent, weight or BMI of participants were seen.

Abstract

The effect of 8 weeks yoga training on cortisol and Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) levels in female patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is examined. Twenty four MS female patients with Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) 1 to 5.5 participated in this study as the subject. The participants were divided into control (n*=*10) or training group (n*=*14) randomly. Training group performed 90*min yoga training per session, 3 days a week for 8 weeks.

Assessments include body composition measurement and blood sampling 48*h before first session and 48*h after the intervention. The results demonstrated that ACTH increased and cortisol decreased compared to the control group (P*<*0.05);

In conclusion, it seems that yoga training modulates ACTH level in concomitant with reduction in cortisol level in female patients with MS.
