‘Exercise – The Best Medicine for MS’ Information Session

Did you know that 78% of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) undertake no physical activity at all, and yet the evidence is clear – exercise is the best medicine for MS! Research has shown that when MS patients start exercising they quickly improve physically, and their brain benefits, too.

The National Health Co-op, in collaboration with MS Ltd and SERVICE ONE Alliance Bank, is holding a free education session on Tuesday, 7 March 2017 to discuss the relationship between MS and exercise.

In this highly informative session, Dr. Phu Hoang, MS Physiotherapist Consultant and researcher, will outline the benefits of exercise and offer tips on how to get started on an exercise program specifically designed for people with MS. You will discover what physical activities to undertake and how much to do for the best health results. The session will also look at the barriers and concerns about exercising with MS, along with strategies to overcome them.

Anyone interested in learning more about exercise and its role in MS management is encouraged to attend. You are welcome to invite a guest.
