September 2013 – Dr. Amy Latimer-Cheung: “Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for Adults with MS and the MS Get Fit ToolKit”

Dr. Amy Latimer-Cheung (Associate Professor, School Of Kinesiology and Health Studies, Queen’s University): “ Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for Adults with MS and the MS Get Fit ToolKit”.

These guidelines are appropriate for adults (aged 18-64 years) with minimal to moderate disability resulting from either relapsing remitting or progressive forms of multiple sclerosis (MS).
You may wish to speak to a health professional to find out what types and amounts of physical activity are appropriate for you.
A health professional might include a doctor, a physiotherapist, or a qualified exercise professional.
If you are are physically inactive , activities performed at a lower intensity, frequency, and duration than recommended may bring some benefit.
Gradually increase duration, frequency, and intensity as a progression towards meeting the guidelines.
