# Exercises For Ms Patients

The following section describes a range of exercises, which we have developed in partnership with a specialist neurophysiotherapist, that you can adapt to your own needs. They vary in difficulty, so you may find that not all of them are right for you. The exercises have been divided up into different categories based on the starting position (sitting, standing, kneeling or lying) and the issues they help address (such as balance, posture and strength). This may help you to decide which ones are appropriate for you and how to fit them in with your daily activities. Initially you might want to consider enlisting help from a physiotherapist to help you choose the right exercises for you, give you some tips and pointers and advise you on how to build up the amount that you do gradually.

Breathing exercises also play a part in improving our posture and exercising both the diaphragm and abdominal muscles. Fun with breathing exercises You can also have fun with breathing exercises – try singing or whistling! It doesn’t matter if you’re not very good! If nothing else it may make you laugh at your efforts and laughter is proven therapy for us all! If you can’t whistle or sing, then just try a long slow blow. See how long you can take to blow a lung full of air out, counting in your head. If you can get to 20 or 30 you’re doing fine! These exercises can be done at any time of day. Many of them could be done while watching TV. It is useful to use something as a trigger to remind you to do some of the exercises. It is also sensible to intersperse the breathing exercises with the others so that you don’t get giddy! If you have problems/concerns, talk to a physiotherapist.
