    Effects of Exercise on the Therapeutic and Rehabilitation Process of Patients with Multiple Sclerosis- A Narrative Review

    Payam Saadat, Seyed Mohammad Masood Hojjati, et al


    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, autoimmune and inflammatory nervous system disease. It leads to the loss of myelin in the white matter of brain, spinal cord and optic nerves, and causes tiredness, muscle cramp, tremor, unsteady gait and some inability to move. Due to the effects of exercise in patients with MS, we aimed to evaluate the effect of exercise on the therapeutic and recovery process of patients with MS.

    In this study, a narrative review was conducted using keywords, including Multiple Sclerosis, exercise, recovery, treatment, through searching in international scientific databases, such as PubMed, Web of Science and Scopus, on articles published form inception.

    Different types of exercises were assessed and reported by the researchers as beneficial rehabilitation strategies for patients to manage symptoms restore function, optimize quality of life, promote wellness and back to activities of daily living. These exercises include endurance exercises (aerobics), balance exercises, flexibility exercises, yoga exercises, hypnosis exercises, physiotherapy exercises and exercise in water.

    Because of positive effects of sport exercises, it is recommended that training program be considered as a complementary treatment alongside other treatments for MS patients.

    Pay attention to the authors' conclusions:

    "exercise plays an important role in preventing and treating fatigue in MS patients."

    That's a huge deal.
