dc.description.abstract Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic demyelinating and degenerative disease of the Central Nervous System. Because of the widespread patterns of the lesions, the clinical manifestations of the disease are varied. A cause of Multiple Sclerosis has yet to be identified so treatments remain relatively ineffective. Thus, people with MS have a lifelong need for rehabilitation and interventions from allied health professionals. Recent evidence recommends that people with mild MS participate in exercise programmes consisting of both progressive resistance exercise and aerobic exercise. Literature also suggests that balance rehabilitation can be effective in people with moderate MS. en_US
