Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which can cause severe movement impairment. For MS patients it is difficult to perform regular chores which otherwise are performed almost involuntarily. The amount of mental and physical energy that MS patients have to put in for performing regular tasks takes a toll on them, causing fatigue and weariness. Living with Multiple Sclerosis can get very difficult. So, here are a few simple-to-do home exercises which will help you work around the disease.
Exercise #1: Side Stretch
To perform the side stretch you have to be seated on the edge of a flat surface (e.g. bed) with your feet planted firmly on the ground and hands in a relaxed position. Now, stretch one of your hands as far as possible along the surface of the bed while the rest of your body remains in a neutral position. Hold the stretch for 2 seconds and then resume your starting position. Repeat this exercise for the other hand as well. Repeat 3-5 times for each hand every day.
