Tips for Exercising with Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and often disabling neurologic disease of the central nervous system that affects 23,000 people in Australia. There is currently no known cure, however there are many treatment options that can make living with MS more manageable.

Growing research suggests that exercise is an important part of managing the disease.

Unfortunately, however, people suffering from the condition are less likely to complete a structured exercise program. Read on for seven tips to ensure a safe and efficient MS oriented exercise regime.

Men and Mental Health

People often think that being healthy means having good physical health, forgetting a large part of being healthy means having good mental health and wellbeing also. Although they can be related with therapies like exercise leading to both a better physical and mental health, they both are managed and treated in different ways. It is important that we talk about mental health issues in men because often mental illness goes unidentified and untreated with research suggesting that only just over a quarter of men with a mental health condition seek help.
