    I have learned several new and important pieces of information from Can Do MS's webinars. It is the type of information that you don't even know to ask about. So I wouldn't have asked my doctor about it. I am especially pleased to find out about neuroplasticity and pre-cooling and post-cooling as related to exercise. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of MS patients like myself.
