Effect of a 4-week period of unloaded leg cycling exercise on spasticity in multiple sclerosis

Posted Nov 17 2009 10:20pm
obtained from the msif.org

summary: Rehabilitation has been shown to be crucial in MS, especially when there is a certain degree of disability. Studies also suggested that rehabilitation might be important for spasticity management. The authors aimed to investigate the effect of a four-week programme of unloaded leg cycling on the current scales for spasticity, from both objective (clinical examination and neurophysiology) and subjective (people with MS) points of view. They found that, although this four-week exercise programme did not have a positive impact on objective scales, some improvement was observed from the participants’ point of view.
