Non-cardio exercises, including yoga and seated stretches, can help positively manage your MS symptoms and promote your overall health. In particular, there is growing research on the disease-modifying effects of yoga, in addition to its profound impact on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Best of all, these activities are accessible to everyone of all abilities. With some creativity and adaptations, everyone can do something!

Along with the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord, the eye - in particular the optic nerve - is part of the central nervous system (CNS). The reason visual problems are very common in multiple sclerosis (MS) is because MS is a disease of the CNS.
The three main visual problems that can occur in MS are:
• Optic neuritis
• Double vision
• Nystagmus (or jumping eyes)

We invite you to join an occupational therapist and a physical therapist to have an interactive, solution-focused approach to solving the accessibility challenges within your home. The “keys” to unlocking accessibility do not need to be changed, but rather discovered!

Resilience is the ability to overcome, especially when faced with adversity such as MS, and it is influenced by many factors. A few of which include: current health status and how it affects your physical and emotional energy, attitude of gratitude, nutrition and spiritual practices like meditation. It is important to someone living with MS because every day one has no idea how, or if our bodies will betray us. The unknown is a way of life. When you have resilience and inner strength, you know you’ve “got this”, no matter the situation.
