    Multiple sclerosis is the most prevalent, chronic, inflammatory and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system; that develops demyelinating lesions. The deficit of the lower urinary tract in patients with multiple sclerosis, occurs when the spinal cord is directly affected; and the nocturia is one of the most important urinary symptoms of these patients. Physical activity and exercise are two potential non-pharmacologic treatments that modulate the clinical manifestations and the progression of multiple sclerosis. Physical exercise is a fundamental element of the therapeutic strategy in multiple sclerosis patients. It has been reported a decrease in the voiding nocturnal episodes in the patients that implement a physical exercise routine.
