Multiple Sclerosis Exercises

Ability Bow Instructor Tony takes you through this series of exercises to help you to manage symptoms such as fatigue, muscle spasms, impaired balance and posture and where possible, improve walking. Keeping physically active will also reduce your risk of other heath conditions including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, obesity, depression and some cancers.

Depending on what level you are at, exercise can be done standing, sitting, or lying down, with or without equipment. The following exercises are seated and done without the aid of any exercise equipment, so are suitable for most abilities. If you would like to use weights or resistance bands or would like to do standing exercises, please refer to the relevant exercise sections on our website.

If you require further advice about which form of exercise is right for you, you can request a call from one of our trainers who will be happy to advise you. Make sure to read our advice about exercise and warming up before you begin.
