It affects nearly 400,000 Americans with daily fatigue, loss of coordination and balance, and muscle spasms or spasticity-and it has no cure. Now, research shows that MS symptoms can be reduced through exercise, making living with MS a little easier.

An essential reference for anyone who suffers from MS, it will show you: - How daily exercise can help reduce your fatigue - How to increase physical strength while decreasing spasticity - How to compensate for loss of balance and coordination while walking - Why medical treatments are just not enough If you or someone you know suffers from MS, you need this book. With an easy-to-follow, simple workout designed to adapt to many energy levels, "Exercises for Multiple Sclerosis" will help MS sufferers to achieve a healthier, happier, more productive life.
