  • AAN Conference: At-Home Exercise Builds Muscle in MS Patients

    Well, duh. Dave

    HONOLULU -- Muscle strength and lung function were significantly enhanced in multiple sclerosis patients who participated in a remotely supervised at-home exercise program, a researcher said here.

    After three months, maximum isometric force in trunk flexion and extension as well as peak expiratory flow were increased significantly compared with a no-intervention control group, said Alexander Tallner, a doctoral candidate at the University of Erlangen in Germany.

    Tallner reported preliminary findings from the first 32 patients enrolled in a planned 124-patient randomized trial in a poster session here at the American Academy of Neurology meeting.
