Exercise, Yoga Help Ease MS Symptoms

Yoga and water-based exercises can help lessen some symptoms of multiple sclerosis, as well as being a healthy complement to conventional treatments.

Yoga and aquatic exercises have been found to ease common symptoms of multiple sclerosis in a new study that suggests such practices can be a healthy complement to conventional treatments.

The study — led by researchers from the University of Basel and Psychiatric University Clinics Basel and the University of Medical Sciences in Iran — compared the experiences of 54 women with MS who were asked to engage in yoga, aquatic exercise, or no exercise. The women were surveyed before and after the study.

The results showed the patients who participated in a weekly training program (yoga or exercise) for eight weeks reported an improvement in symptoms, while those who did not had a “likelihood of moderate to severe depression that was 35-fold higher” than the others.

 

The findings were published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise.
